Healthcare: The rural areas in southeast Texas lack basic healthcare infrastructure. Hospitals, clinics and family physician offices are closing. We need to create incentives for healthcare professionals to move to, and stay in the region. Jobs: We need a $15-an-hour minimum wage. Create tax incentives for companies that pay for retraining and re-education for people to stay current or reenter the workforce. Encourage partnerships with leading companies to create job opportunities.
Breaking up families and deporting immigrants who have become part of our communities is not the way to go. We need a comprehensive immigration plan moving forward that allows for a path to citizenship. Pass a clean DREAM Act and build no wall.
Preventative care and pre-existing conditions must be covered at rates families can actually afford. Congress must place the highest priority on finding a solution for the healthcare crisis. Congress should also commit to enrolling in whatever healthcare system they create for the general public.
Legislation must be passed upgrading the voter rolls, protecting election equipment and securing the electoral process from outside interference. To do anything less is no different than allowing a foreign power a direct vote in our Legislative and Executive branches. An attack on our elections is a direct attack on our country and the principles that make this nation great.
