My Top 3 Priorities

  • Support Andrew Yang's plan for a Universal Basic Income of $1000 per month for every American adult. As technology eliminates more jobs, UBI will help create an economy that works for everyone.
  • Inequality is at a 50-year high. Most billion-dollar companies like Amazon and Netflix pay little to no taxes. We need the rich to pay their fair share, and use these funds to combat poverty and inequality.
  • We need to get money out of politics. I support limits on corporate donations to candidates. I also support Ranked-Choice Voting as well as Democracy Dollars; both of which will help stop corruption.
