Health care that works for us, not special interests
As a fulltime working mother, I know how hard it can be to make ends meet. Like many families, our biggest expense is health care. Unfortunately, Congress has favored a one-size-fits-all approach to health care which has significantly increased costs.

We need to allow people to purchase health care that suits their needs, as opposed to being forced into high priced comprehensive plans. Veteran’s should also be afforded health care options, outside the VA network, that are both patient focused and market-based.

Ensuring our Farmers have a advocate in Congress
My family and farmers across the Central Valley continue to face challenges because of poor representation in Congress. These challenges are compounded as Sacramento and Washington, DC attempt to cripple our $6 Billion Agriculture Industry. In fact, many crops are no longer feasible to grow, leading us to rely on foreign countries to provide them.

I have been fighting for local Agriculture all of my adult life and it will be a top priority when I get to Congress. We must ensure trade deals are fair and create an effective ag guest worker program. As a matter of national security, we must also ensure access to water by protecting water rights, while building and maintaining new storage.

Reforming education to meet students’ needs
As a mother, with three kids in local public schools, I understand the frustration with the public education system. While my kids have been blessed with good schools and teachers, many families are not so fortunate. This is why I support a choice in education initiative. This will allow parents to take their hard-earned tax dollars and choose the school that best fits their child’s needs, including public, private, charter or home.

We must also reform the federal student lending structure that has enabled colleges and universities to raise tuition costs at alarming rates. These increases primarily go to line the pockets of chancellors and professors that make high six or seven-figure salaries. Unfortunately, many students graduate with crippling debt and a degree that barely covers it. This is why I will facilitate vocational education institutions that teach students a trade to provide for themselves and their family.
