There are many reasons that the voters from TX House of Representatives, HD 20, should vote for me.
First, I've signed no pledges that will hamper my ability to work on the best solution to any given problem. I'm not indebted to any large donors, PACs or Super PACs. I am free to represent the voters in the counties that comprise this district.
If elected there will be attempts made to improve on health care. The short term fix is for Texas to expand access to Medicaid to help working people who aren't able to afford their families' healthcare coverage.
The Affordable (Health) Care Act (a.k.a., Obama care) is a step in the correct direction. Medicare for all (a.k.a., Single Payer Health Care [SPH]) is the long term solution. SPH will return family planning to a discussion between a family and their doctor. SPH will also cover our military veterans and their families who are finding VA hospitals to be overwhelmed by the effects of America's multiple recent wars.
The DREAM Act, proposed by Republicans around ten years ago, will finally become law. The action of parents, who brought their young children with them when they came to the USA illegally, should not be held against young people who have known only life in these United States.
We must refocus on planning, installing, operating, maintaining and replacing common carrier infrastructure: roads, bridges, water, sewer, electric and telecommunications facilities. These things will return to the prominent stature they held over thirty years ago.
Conservation, solar and wind energy will replace “all of the above” with much more sustainable, long term sources of electricity.
The funding of public education, pre-K through post graduate, will also return to the level of importance it had attained more than thirty years ago. The original Crowd Sourcing (a.k.a., taxpayers) are the only organization with the means and motivation to educate everyone as well as is possible.
I believe this will be the basis of what is needed to best serve the voters of this district and restore the government of Texas to its proper role: investing in the basic needs that have allowed this state to rise to become one of the world's largest economies, larger than all but about a dozen countries.
This will push the Texas legislature to earn our constituents' respect.
This will give, “Hope and Change,” a Chance ...and a Push!
Register and Vote. Turn TX Blue in 2014!
