Countdown to the Election
My Priorities for New Mexico
“ONLY 17% OF AMERICANS EXPECT TO PAY LESS IN TAXES UNDER TRUMP’S TAX CUTS AND JOBS ACT” ~ USA TODAY, APRIL 8, 2019
Something is wrong with Washington’s priorities when they pass a trillion-dollar tax cut that primarily benefits corporations and the rich. The most profitable companies in the world like Amazon, Chevron and Occidental Petroleum paid NO federal taxes thanks to the Republican tax cut.
How is it that Washington would allow Amazon to pay NO taxes on $11,200,000,000 of profit in 2018. While at the same time, President Trump is proposing drastic cuts to Medicare and Social Security—social programs that support countless American families—in order to pay for these outrageous tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. When you elect your next Congressperson, you need to know what their priorities are.
My Agenda for New Mexico
Too many communities in the 3rd congressional district have the highest rate of unemployment in New Mexico. Bringing jobs and economic opportunity to our communities will be my top priority in Congress.
I will fight to legalize marijuana to unclog our criminal justice system, stop the unjust targeting of minorities, and tax the sale of marijuana to fund the massive treatment and prevention programs necessary to END the Opioid epidemic in New Mexico.
The emphasis of my efforts in Congress will be directed towards working New Mexico families by increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour, passing a national paid family leave program and increase funding for affordable housing.
