I will fight for Idaho’s need to invest more in education to fill openings and address high teacher turn-over rates so that our children have a fighting chance at a good education.
College degrees expand work options and lead to higher wages but are not an option for many Idahoans. I propose free community college to open doors, change lives, and help rebuild rural Idaho.
Idaho leads the nation in percentage of minimum wage jobs. I’ll advocate for a state government which works to attract and encourage companies that pay a living wage (>$12 per hour in Idaho).
I will work to block state incentives for companies whose worker salaries are low and stagnant while those same companies make huge profits and line the pockets of senior executives.
It’s time to close the Medicaid Gap. It is cruel and financially irresponsible of our state government to refuse federal funds which would provide affordable health coverage for 78,000 people.
Health care is a basic human need and right. It’s time to stop insurance and pharmaceutical companies from profiting at the expense of our health and lives. Medicare should be available to all.
