The Issues

Healthcare - Make healthcare portable, affordable and accessible by simplifying billing practices, increasing Health Savings Account (HSA) use and improving experiences with modernization and innovation

Education - Increase college availability and lower tuition debt by taking Minnesota’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program nationwide, reducing students' personal debt by up to 50%

Immigration - Encourage people to come to the United States legally and safely by revamping our current system and dealing fairly with those already in the country

National Debt - Leave a legacy to our children and grandchildren that doesn’t burden them with undue debt by lowering budget growth rates (excluding Medicare) 

Climate Change - Maintain a balanced and responsible approach to a clean, safe environment while keeping pollution to a minimum

Maintain and Defend - life, parental rights, freedom to bear arms, freedom of the press, and personal responsibility.
