Healthcare

We all watched in horror as those republicans in the house voted to repeal the ACA. Although it is not perfect we need to work in a bipartisan way to fix what we can and rewrite what does not work. 

Ultimately I would like to see a Medicare for all. Expanded Medicaid for the sick and elder. 

NO ONE should EVER be denied healthcare because they cannot afford what the INSURANCE COMPANIES charge. No ONE should EVER HAVE TO FILE Bankruptcy because they became sick. 

I PROMISE to fight for US. As someone with a Preexisting Condition I have a Intimate involvement with this issue 


Racial Issues

As a Puerto Rican male adopted by a African American family, my father was born in 1927 in Boluxi, MI. Segregation was a major topic with my dad, He was Pastor and a WWII vet. Growing up I never new anything racist since my father did all he could to shield me from it.

Also reminding me that God made 1 race the HUMAN race! Respect and Love is what we need and to read and study Dr. King


Pharma

I do not believe pharmaceutical companies should be advertising directly to you through commercials on TV, radio, billboards and printed matter. They are trying to create a country of hypochondriac's 


I Believe in a $15+ living wage

It is about time we pay the workers of the richest nation on earth a living wage. Not only would this pull most lower income folks out of poverty it would also generate MORE taxes for local,state and federal governments. This would cut down on food stamps and welfare saving governments Millions to Billions of tax dollars.

Not only helping first time job high school grads to believe they have an opportunity in life so they are less likely to turn to crime, drugs. 


End corruption by writing legislation

To end Citizens United supreme court ruling to allow dark money to fund campaigns thus enabling people to buy election whether it is democrat or republican. 

We need a public financing system so people know exactly who they are funding. ALL Super Pacs need to be banned plain and simple.

I would Push for ALL supreme court judges to be voted in to the Life time tenure, to insure there is a NONPARTISAN Court not liberal or conservative leaning but CONSTITUTION leaning!!!


100% behind Unions!

The Ability to form a Union I believe is a life blood to our country, To be able to collectively bargain, to have someone to represent the workers of a corporation. Someone to hold the Greedy and selfish accountable.


Renewable energy....

I believe we need to move towards at least 75% Wind and Solar in the next 30 years... 

Not only should we lead the world in this clean form of energy we also can be rebuilding our middle class with JOBs that cannot be shipped overseas.

So Yes, I am PRO science and PRO renewable energy.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING

From My Campaign to your family Happy Thanksgiving


This Question came from Kurt Thank you

Mr. Garcia, Regarding your article “WE NEED to stop forgetting”. Can you please explain the importance of the statement: “But let us not look past our communities have been beat down by an overall government that BARELY represents them or even looks like them.” Specifically, what do you mean by “looks like them”? I’m concerned that you may be putting individual appearance ahead of the character of the person. Martin Luther King jr. said he would rather be judged by the content of his character than the color of his skin. Do you agree with that?

 

OK When I wrote, “But let us not look past our communities have been beat down by an overall government that BARELY represents them or even looks like them". I mean the people who are not in the 1%... The struggling single mother, the Disabled person just allowed to make Social security, the Immigrant working 3 jobs going to school online just to get the American dream for their children... The Hispanic or black, poor white child being gun down or arrested for laws that are OUTDATED or they are punished excessively... But WALLSTREET can steal, kill, and pillage with not even a slap on the wrist, or if they get regulations we get representatives who just roll them back to get more donations to their campaign... So when I said "LOOKS LIKE YOU" I mean the COMMON AMERICAN!!!!


My Take on the 2nd Amendment and Guns

With out demonizing ALL NRA card holding members, I do find it sad that the many good NRA card carrying members are not telling THEIR board members that THEY want safer methods adopted for GUN SAFETY!

Now that being said, I believe we need a VERY STRICT background check.  The reason why I say this is because it is harder to buy medication than buy a gun.  A WEAPON that CAN KILL SO EASILY masses of people should NEVER be so easily accessible...

People took the 2nd amendment and bought CONGRESSMEN like JIM SENSENBRENNER and the Supreme Court to agree with their perverted way of gun ownership. Yet when you look at the 2nd amendment it says NO WHERE THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO MILITARY WEAPONS. Here is what it says:

*Second Amendment. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."*



THIS IS the 21 century, not the 1700's we have the strongest VOLUNTER military. THUS asking "do YOU really believe that a PRESIDENT can tell them (military)to take your rights. THE MILITARY PLEDGE IS TO THE CONSTITUTION, not a PRESIDENT". So trying to use that argument is ignorant in its own right.



IF you want to play with military style weaponry, JOIN THE MILITARY, that way YOU GET PAID to shoot guns and be patriotic to boot. 

So we should ban assault rifles, ban bumpstocks, ban high capacity clips and military-grade scopes and then make an intensive EXTREMELY thorough background check for all other guns. MAKE ALL public areas gun free.  If the need to own a gun was for AS the NRA says "HOME PROTECTION" then it does not need to be out of the home, BUT make it another check to prove you need it for personal protection just like my Handyman who works in areas riddled by crime. I can see how he needs extra protection BUT this can be proven by the reciepts he OFFICIALLY has to turn in for the work he does in that area. 


I will propose a bill to...

Let Americans vote to elect our EPA Secretary. Since the environment affects every citizen of the U.S.A., It should be an elected position by popular vote. This will ensure no administration can appoint another Scott PRUIT... Also, a major environmental law also must go to a vote every election year. This will ensure no 1 person can destroy the environmental protections set in place... This will ensure any candidate to state their views and plans ahead of taking office.
