Corporate Accountability

Corporate Accountability

When the economic recession hit, Congress rushed to bail out big Wall Street banks and then declared “Mission Accomplished” We know that the mission is not accomplished until ordinary folks are back on their feet and back to work.

We must have a system that doesn’t allow big corporation to take our tax dollars and give big Wall Street executives million dollar bonuses. I will crack down on the corruption and greed of Corporations and make sure taxpayers never have to foot the bill again.

Economy/Jobs

Great ideas don’t come out of Washington; they come from business owners and independent-minded community leaders. They come from employees who put in the long hours and the working families who buy the groceries, raise their kids and grandkids, and wake up every morning knowing they have to work a little harder to get by because of the mistakes made by Washington and Wall Street.

Big banks and Washington got us into this mess, but we’re going to get ourselves out of it. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we need to help small business owners compete and grow their business with tax breaks and incentives.

The federal government needs to stay out of the way of individuals who work hard, play by the rules, and take the initiative in creating jobs in their communities. It’s business owners who are going to get our economy moving again, not bureaucrats in Washington.

In Congress, I will fight to give innovators and entrepreneurs the tools they need to grow our economy and create jobs, including:

Provide a 50% cut in pay roll taxes for the first two years a small business starts up to make sure we have a system that encourages investment in our local economy.
Allow small businesses to expense 100% of new equipment to help cut costs now and set ourselves up for job growth in the future.
Ensure that responsible business owners who want to expand have access to credit.

Veterans

Our men and women in uniform fight for our safety and our freedom and they deserve a leader who will fight for them. We must have a system that honors those that serve our country. In congress I will always stand up for our Veterans by;

  • Increasing Military pay
  • Securing funding for education and job assistance programs for our soldiers returning home from overseas
  • Ensuring our soldiers and Veterans have access to world class healthcare

Education Reform

A world-class education system will ensure America’s continued economic dominance and will give our children the opportunity to compete and succeed. Too often, elected officials have tacitly accepted institutionalized failure in the education system by not seeking new solutions. I am determined to bring my passion for education reform and innovation to Congress.

If elected, I will work to reform failing schools, support excellence within the teaching profession, including innovative pathways to alternative certification, and utilize technology to improve the efficacy and accountability of a diverse, flexible new public education system. This system should include charter schools, where students can flourish and our communities can be renewed.

Ethics

My campaign does not accept corporate PAC (Political Action Committee) money. My campaign will not accept any National Democratic Leadership money because my vote doesn’t belong to any party; it belongs to the people of the first congressional district.

In Congress, I’ll fight for a lifetime ban on lobbying by former members of Congress to make sure the voice of the people isn’t drowned out by the inside deals between partisan leadership and the special interests. I will work to:

  • Ban lobbyist gifts
  • Increase disclosure
  • Establish a new Independent Ethics Commission to investigate and audit influence by special interests
