Crime

My plan will invest in the criminal justice system by funding prosecutors in state district attorney’s offices who will specialize in DVSA cases and victim advocates who will also serve in district attorney’s offices and will focus on serving DVSA victims by helping them navigate the criminal justice system. My plan will also incentivize states to increase sentences for domestic violence offenders with a pattern of escalating violence and for offenders who commit domestic violence in the presence of children.

Healthcare

As your Senator, I will take on big pharma to decrease drug prices and hold them accountable for the opioid epidemic. We must allow Medicare to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical industry for competitive savings. I will also work to mandate that drug companies publish the list prices of prescription drugs, and will allow Americans to safely import medication from Canada.

Healthcare

Our healthcare system is broken. As a doctor, I’ve seen firsthand the struggles Alaskans and small businesses face with the prohibitively high costs of healthcare. In Alaska, we pay more for healthcare than in any other state in the country.

Healthcare

The drug companies have a stranglehold on Washington, preventing any action to make prescription drugs more affordable. As your Senator I’ll take on the big drug companies, starting by changing the law so that Medicare can negotiate for better prices. I’ll fight to make sure Americans don’t pay the highest drug prices in the Western world and to end our reliance on drugs made in China. When the next pandemic hits, we can’t rely on the goodwill of China to make sure we have the medication we need.

Healthcare

We must keep the government out of our healthcare decisions, whether it be at the beginning or at the end of our life decisions. As a doctor, I know how personal and complicated those decisions can be. Especially now, during the current COVID-19 crisis, respect for people’s choices and for their health decisions must be safeguarded and protected. With a majority of Supreme Court justices on record as opposing the constitutional protection of individual choices, it is especially important that we have a United States Senator who stands by these constitutional rights – and insists on only confirming judges who stand by them, too. But the current court also highlights that relying on judges is not enough. It is past time to pass legislation enshrining women’s reproductive rights into federal law.

Will always be a fierce advocate for organized labor and working families. Dan Sullivan has repeatedly voted for appointees to the National Labor Relations Board that are either unqualified or outright hostile to worker protections. I will do exactly the opposite. I will also oppose any legislation that works to weaken unions and working families and will begin working immediately to shore up our struggling pension system and pass reforms to ensure that this situation never happens again.

Defense

Military defense is vital to U.S. national security and to Alaska’s economy. Alaska’s strategic location and the security implications of the geostrategic changes occurring in the artic mean that the U.S. homeland is no longer a sanctuary.  Alaska is the next frontier for America’s military preparedness as Russia and China rush to militarize the Arctic.

As your Senator, I won’t be voting with Donald Trump 97% of the time like Dan Sullivan did– I’ll be working for Alaska.  That starts with protecting America’s security and building Alaska’s economic future.

Environment

I support an all-of-the-above energy strategy – one that utilizes responsible development of oil and gas resources in Alaska’s federal areas, with revenue sharing for the state and local communities.  It’s clear that Alaska’s economy cannot currently exist without the fossil fuel industry that provides so much of our income and employment.  But it’s also clear that that industry is declining – the number of oil rigs operating in the U.S. has fallen by over 70% since the start of this year, to the lowest level in half a decade, with analysts projecting them to collapse to a record low by mid-year and around one-quarter of their 2019 levels by year’s end, and will barely recover in 2021.  Alaska clearly needs to start planning for an economy that isn’t as dependent on the fossil fuel industry.
