I am running for Congress because I believe the federal government needs to help regular people live a better life, and Dan Newhouse has fought every step of the way to make sure that does not happen.  Forty years of the same trickle down, anti-worker, pro-corporate policies that Dan Newhouse has spent his entire public life fighting for have made everyone's life harder except for a tiny cohort of multi-millionaires. We need to change that.

I have four sons who are all in their twenties. You and I both know that unless things change, my kids and yours will not have nearly the advantages and opportunities that we did growing up in this country.  My goal is to make sure that every single kid in Eastern Washington has all the advantages and opportunities I had growing up. And I know we can do it. 

The truth is, we don't have to change very much to make America work again for regular working people. If we can just get a few things right, we can turn America's problems around for everyone.

We need wages to go up. We need American workers to get a bigger piece of the economic pie that they create.

We need rents to come down.  We need to build more affordable housing that doesn't price young people out of the market.

We need a basic level of health-care for every American that is affordable, and that isn't tied to a job. Getting laid off shouldn't cost you your healthcare.

 

We need to make college affordable.  We need to stop saddling our young people with astronomical student loans just to get an education.

 

We need to transition to clean energy, and we need to do it quickly. 


I believe that we can do all of these things, and that when we do, people's lives will be much, much better.  I believe in the United States.  I believe that with everyone pitching in and doing their part, we are going to beat this coronavirus thing.  But it isn't good enough to just go back to the way things were.  We need to do much, much better.

We need an economy that delivers a broad-based prosperity to everyone. We owe it to ourselves to have a country where a regular person is able to feed their family,  own their house, pay their bills,  give their kids a quality education, have enough left over to go on a vacation every now and again, and be secure in their old age.

This campaign is about building that America.  That is the promise we make to our future generations.  The promise that they will do better than their parents.  I hope you will pitch in, join this campaign, and help me deliver on that promise.
