3 things I will do if I win:
Icon: A picture of the state of Oregon with a health cross in the middle1. Lower health care costs by expanding coverage, creating lower-cost options outside of the for-profit insurance industry, protect consumers, and strengthen Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Icon: A ribbon with stars and stripes and the word "Veteran" on it.2. The Veterans Administration should serve veterans as they did for our country. I led the charge to improve VA health care and secured funding for a new clinic for local vets.
Icon: A diploma, a graduation cap and a book, with the label "College."3. I have voted against every congressional pay raise and will continue to vote against pay raises. Instead, I use the money to fund scholarships at Oregon community colleges. Everyone should have access to education without crippling debt.
