It is time to stop America’s never-ending wars. I will work to create peace internationally without U.S. military intervention. I will stand for a national foreign policy that focuses on democracy, human rights, diplomacy, and economic equity.
Congress must assert its constitutional authority over the use of military force and show bipartisan concern over unconstitutional wars. It’s time to put an end to the military-industrial complex and invest in creating a better life for all people. In Congress, I will advocate for strong Congressional oversight into foreign affairs to stop the Presidential abuse of war powers.
I will fight to bring our soldiers home and give them a good quality of life when they get here. That means veterans should come home to a government that guarantees necessities like a living wage, universal health coverage including mental health treatments, and access to higher education.
It’s time to stop sending our young people to continue fighting an endless war and invest in the more than 18 million veterans who are here in America. I support expanding the VA’s Caregivers Program and mental health services for veterans. I also support eliminating the VA benefits backlog, fully funding the VA, and reversing the privatization of services for veterans.
