"Many multi-billion dollar corporations are paying nothing in federal taxes. These same companies are investing heavily in automating their businesses, potentially displacing 25% of American jobs in the next 20 years. As the job creators become automators, it is time they start paying their fair share like the rest of us. Together, we will fix Washington with a Fair Tax Platform that puts American workers first."

It is time for a Green New Deal that ensures a habitable planet and that provides clean energy and jobs to all Americans.

Statement on the Assassination of Qasem Soleimani in the New Hope Free Press
"War must always be the last resort for the United States. The human costs are simply too great. My generation has lived through our nation's longest war and we still haven't figured out how to completely end it or pay for it. The fact that top members of Congressional foreign policy committees were not briefed prior to attacking a sitting government official of a foreign nation is reprehensible given the near certainty of a retaliatory attack."
