Economic inequality is more severe today than at any point since the Great Depression. The middle class is shrinking, secure, good-paying jobs are increasingly rare, benefits are under attack, and retirement is becoming a luxury beyond the reach of workers. This is not a natural or inevitable evolution of society. This is the result of an intentional and coordinated effort by a small number of the wealthy elite to seize and concentrate political power and to rewrite our legal and tax systems to their benefit at the expense of working Americans
I am running for Congress because the inequalities that plague our nation have reached a fever-pitch and we must move quickly and expansively if we are to create a better future. The rights of workers are central to my vision of making a better future a reality. As your representative in Congress, I will lead the fight for workers’ rights, expansion and protection of the middle class, and the elimination of inequality in every guise.
