Crime

The struggle for racial justice in the United States is far from over. In 2020, both the health and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the Black community much harder than anyone else. In addition, the ongoing systemic racism of the United States justice system continues to take the lives of Black Americans while denying their right to due process.

Healthcare

New Jersey has the most expensive public health care system in the nation. Some projections indicate that next year’s Affordable Care Act premiums could increase by 40%, most of which will be paid for by our tax dollars. We will also see soaring premium increases across the board as the insurance industry seeks to recoup losses due to COVID-19. So will health insurance companies, which yielded net profits of 28 billion dollars just two years ago, increase the cost of healthcare when we need it most? Of course they will!

Healthcare

No one “likes” abortion and while I will always support a women’s right to choose, I believe the best approach for unwanted pregnancies should be proactive rather than reactive. As a young woman, my healthcare insurance did not provide for contraceptives so I went to Planned Parenthood for my birth control. It was affordable and kept me safe from unwanted pregnancies. I believe all citizens should have access to birth control and Medicare for All should include this valuable coverage along with STI treatment and contraceptives.

Guns

While on the one hand, I understand and respect that we have a Second Amendment right to bear arms in order to protect ourselves and property and that there are many Americans who do enjoy gun-related activities such as hunting and collection. On the other hand, from mass shootings to suicides, our lack of common-sense legislation regarding guns leads to so much preventable injury and death. More than 100,000 Americans are either killed or injured every year due to gun violence and more than half of those deaths are suicides. We need regulations to prevent military-style weaponry from being used for mass murder and policies that work to prevent Americans with mental illness from taking their own lives.

Finally, something we all agree on. Nearly every study, survey and poll indicate overwhelming support for term limits in Congress. So why hasn’t this changed? It’s because the lawmakers in power want to stay right where they are.
