Defense

In the past, Congress has balanced their budget by shortchanging our service members. Reduced pay raises and cuts to benefits are not only disrespectful but also unsustainable. Abby will work to ensure that we as a nation invest in our service members and their families. She will fight to keep our military bases fully funded and to guarantee the safety and protection of the United States.

Crime

MEET ABBY PRIORITIES JOIN US DONATE Criminal Justice System Reform Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the world. We’ve poured our money into a failing system for too long. Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Both the Oklahoma City and Tulsa County Jails have multiple issues that are concerning, and 20 percent of inmates are housed in private for-profit prisons. In our state and the rest of the country, we’ve created a system that is too expensive and ineffective to maintain. In Oklahoma in particular, we’re consuming taxpayer dollars at an alarming rate—and, critically, not seeing returns when it comes to public safety or inmate rehabilitation. As an attorney who’s worked on both sides of a criminal case, Abby has seen this firsthand.

Healthcare

Abby believes that every Oklahoman should have access to quality, affordable care, regardless of their circumstances. Common sense measures like SQ 802 here in Oklahoma, which would expand Medicaid to people who simply can’t afford health care are a step in the right direction. SQ 802 would help people who make just over $21,000 per year for a single person or just over $34,000 for a family of four. Right now, their options are to either pay for health care or put food on the table for their families.

Healthcare

The ACA, or Obamacare, is far from perfect, but prohibiting an insurance company from dropping or not offering insurance to Oklahomans because of a pre-existing condition is not just wrong—it’s downright cruel.

Income

She supports the Paycheck Fairness Act, which seeks to close the gender pay gap in part by preventing employers from retaliating against workers who discuss salary. This is the type of common sense policy everyone should support—yet Jim Inhofe does not.

Environment

Unfortunately, Jim Inhofe continues to be the lone holdout, making him the embarrassment of the Senate. Taking a snowball in to the chamber to prove that it is cold outside and therefore climate change can’t possibly be real—it’s a headline one would expect to see from The Onion, not C-SPAN. The year Jim Inhofe pulled this stunt, 2015, was the hottest year ever recorded—until we broke that record again the very next year.

Environment

Abby believes we should direct our efforts toward concrete steps to reverse climate change while at the same time protecting our jobs and our way of life. These steps include increasing the ability to use electric vehicles by investing in more EV charging stations which could remove 11 gigatons of carbon dioxide by 2050, promoting smart thermostats and LED lighting for homes and offices to reduce greenhouse gases, and encouraging landscape designers to not skimp and instead plant coverage on unusable land to reduce atmospheric CO2.

Economy

Jim Inhofe is bankrolled by corporate farming and Big Ag—he’s not looking out for the interests of our Oklahoma family farms. Abby will stand up for our farmers by acknowledging farm debt as an immediate threat to our national security. We cannot sustain a farm debt of $427 billion—a level we haven’t seen since the 1980s.

Economy

Abby will work to reverse Jim Inhofe’s support of farm policies that have led to disastrous consequences: the approximately $1,000 annual burden faced by consumers because of tariffs caused by the trade war with China; the 580 Chapter 12 bankruptcies filed between September 2018 and September 2019—an increase of 42%; and the projected $12.24 billion decrease in agricultural exports to China from 2016 to 2019—a loss of 69.6%.
