Congressional Action to Protect Choice: Our democracy should not be held hostage by right-wing courts, and women should not have to hope that Brett Kavanaugh and Donald Trump’s Supreme Court will respect the law. Congress should pass new federal laws that protect access to reproductive care from right-wing ideologues in the states. Federal laws that ensure real access to birth control and abortion care for all women. Federal laws that will stand no matter what the Supreme Court does.
It’s Time to Reduce Corporate Influence at the Pentagon: The revolving door between defense lobbyists, Congress, and the Pentagon tilts countless decisions away from legitimate national security interests and toward the desires of giant defense contractors. It’s past time to cut our bloated defense budget – and to get serious about cutting defense spending, we need to reduce corporate influence. Americans deserve to know that our military is making decisions with only one thing in mind: their safety. That’s why I’m introducing my plan to slam shut the revolving door and curb the influence of giant defense contractors on the Pentagon.
National Security & Climate Change: Climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. But instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it – and making it worse. I have a plan to make the U.S. military more resilient to climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution. My energy and climate resiliency plan will improve our service members’ readiness and safety, all while achieving cost savings for American taxpayers.
Tackling the Opioid Crisis Head On: Every day, 130 Americans die from an opioid overdose. This is a public health crisis – and we need to start treating it like one. That’s why Congressman Elijah Cummings and I are rolling out the CARE Act, a comprehensive plan that invests $100 billion over the next ten years in states and communities that are on the frontlines of the epidemic – to provide prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those who need it most.
Elizabeth’s Plan to Provide Debt Relief for Puerto Rico: After Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico, one of the biggest constraints holding back the island’s recovery has been its debt. If Puerto Rico were a big company or an American city, it could file for bankruptcy, but because of its unique status, those legal options aren’t available. That’s why I have a plan to provide comprehensive debt relief to Puerto Rico so it can rebuild and thrive.
Addressing Our Maternal Mortality Epidemic: We are facing a maternal mortality crisis in America. And for Black moms, it’s an epidemic. One major reason? Racism. It’s time to hold health systems accountable for preventable failures and demand change – because women’s lives depend on it.
Elizabeth’s Plan to Improve Our Military Housing: Our military families have been raising the alarm about their living conditions for years. This stops now. I have a plan to improve our military housing, protect families from abuse, and hold private developers accountable for the promises they make to those who serve our country.
Cancellation of Student Loan Debt and Universal Free Public College: We should treat higher education like our public school system – free and accessible to all Americans. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational – the cancellation of up to $50,000 in student loan debt for 42 million Americans and free universal college for everyone.
Elizabeth’s Plan for Public Lands: I’m making a promise. On the first day of a Warren administration, I will sign a moratorium so that there is no more drilling on public lands, and I will set a goal of providing 10% of our overall electricity generation from renewable sources. Climate change is here, it is real, and we should make our public lands part of the solution.
Real Corporate Profits Tax: Year after year, some of the biggest corporations in the country make huge profits, but pay zero federal corporate income taxes on those profits. That isn’t right. My Real Corporate Profits Tax will raise over a trillion dollars and make sure the biggest corporations pay their fair share.
Corporate Executive Accountability Act: Our justice system should ensure that if you cheat working Americans, you’ll go to jail. It’s time to reform our laws to make sure that corporate executives are held accountable for overseeing massive scams.
