Trickle down economics is a lie meant to enrich wealthy donors. The latest tax reforms have benefited corporations to the tune of millions, while the lower and middle classes have seen modest returns. Typically no more than $50 per month.

Since the Coronavirus Pandemic, small businesses are in desperate need of federal financial assistance. I will offer a Senate bill within my first year to appropriately fund small businesses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This Senate bill will ask for an additional $500 billion to help struggling small businesses and to prevent any more small businesses from having to file bankruptcy. The Senate bill will define a small business as a business with an annual income of under $5 million per year.

More and more businesses are refusing to accept cash as payment for goods and services and there is currently a coin shortage in circulation preventing businesses from giving change. These are potentially the first steps in moving toward all digital currency. This is a very dangerous movement. We need to protect our ability to use cash in our society and protect the value of our currency.

At the onset of this nation, people were willing to take up their arms to fight for one primary ideal - freedom from oppression of a tyrannical government. Our nation was set up to primarily protect the freedom and wellfare of our citizens. Lately the climate has changed. Many of our freedoms are beinig limited or completely taken away. Businesses, churches, and schools have experienced forced closures and reprocussions in cases of not closing. People have lost jobs, homes, and lives in the wake of increased government control. I will fight for you in Congress to restore our community and economy and help to build it back better than ever.

Economy

Whether or not our economy is working should be decided by everyday people, not by the payouts received by millionaires or the profit statements of corporations. Today, there is virtually no city or town in Louisiana where a person working a full-time minimum wage job can afford a decent, two-bedroom apartment. Small businesses are declining both in their numbers and in their ability to compete. And the failures of our economy disproportionately impact communities of color and low-income communities. We need a fundamental shift in the way that we view the issues of our economy and to prioritize reform that leads to real change for the workers and the entrepreneurs that built this country.
