3 things I will do if I win:
1. Lower healthcare costs by expanding coverage, protecting consumers, creating a public option outside of the for-profit insurance industry, and strengthen Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
2. Create good-paying jobs and restore economic opportunities for all Oregonians.
3.Work to expand access to education by increasing college affordability, lowering student loan interest rates, and job training programs. I’ve voted against every pay raise and instead used the money to fund scholarships at Oregon community colleges.
