All of us deserve to have our voices heard. Democracy is for everyone. Influence in America shouldn't simply go to the highest bidder. We need someone to represent us who will worry about the people of Oklahoma rather than partisan games and re-elections.
Meaningful job growth comes from investing in our nation, supporting small business owners, keeping jobs in America, and standing up for workers' rights. Corporate welfare and tax breaks for companies who ship jobs overseas need to end... permanently.
We cannot balance the budget by simply slashing and cutting. Budget cuts are only part of the solution. We must repeal the Bush-era tax cuts for wealthiest Americans while continuing to provide tax relief for the working class. Congress must also be reminded that cutting our military budget severely impacts the lives of service members, their families, and those of us who live in military communities. We must always do our best to protect those who protect us.
Albert Einstein once said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
We simply cannot continue with politics as usual anymore.
