Statement: Congress needs Representatives who are progressive and will

its people prosper. Incumbents have done a poor job at that.
As a woman, I have total say over my body, want to be paid
a full dollar, and be protected from all forms of discrimination, domination,
and persecution. As the wife of a
Vietnam Veteran, mom of an Iraq Veteran, and having a son currently serving, I
know the cost of war and the pain families endure. I will take care of
veteran's and families and I will fight against war until all else has failed.
The true cost of war surpasses the war itself.
Homeless is not acceptable, mental health is a real problem,
drug addiction laws need changing, our senior's and families must not have to
endure home loss due to unscrupulous banks and mortgage companies. Seniors cola needs to be calculated on current
prices, not old standards which Congress continues to do.
