People have lost faith in our government, in the system. With accountability as my compass, I will lead the charge against corruption in government. I want to remind Idahoans of the unlimited potential we hold as a nation with leaders who unite us with integrity and a passion for good policy. Restoring trust is my top priority as a candidate, ensuring that those who betray public trust are held to account. Recognizing the crucial role public institutions play in our lives, I understand that no individual can achieve this alone. That’s why I’ll work tirelessly to forge connections with every voter, rejecting partisan politics in favor of collaboration. Together we possess a shared stake in improving and streamlining government, even if it means facing uncomfortable truths. The pursuit of a more perfect union demands this commitment each and every day.
Idahoans deserve a dedicated representative who will prioritize finding legislative solutions to curb price gouging and address the root causes of the affordability crisis. Idahoans are known for their decency, hard work, independence, and responsibility. We aren’t afraid to roll up our sleeves and earn our keep, but the mounting challenges of rising costs has made it difficult to afford groceries, fill up our tanks and make ends meet for families in this state. Now is not the time for political games, but practical solutions. By forging a path of transparency, free market competition, and legislative reform, we will deliver the relief that Idahoans need and deserve.
On average, Americans pay over $10,000 per person for healthcare coverage, that’s $5,000 more than people living in most developed nations around the world. Idahoans’ healthcare costs are going up while our life expectancy is going down. Our system is broken and it’s time for a change. Whether it’s the skyrocketing price of prescription drugs, the predatory practice of surprise billing, nearly bankrupted rural hospitals, a complete lack of mental health resources, or the desperate need for healthcare professionals in Idaho, I will take immediate action to tackle these issues head on. You deserve better, deserve affordable healthcare coverage that guarantees access to the vital care you need and legislation that promotes a thriving healthcare industry.
Education holds the transformative power to shape individuals into future leaders, driving progress and creating a better world for generations to come. It is paramount that we prioritize investing in education passionately and unyieldingly. Our current reality paints a stark picture – the United States underfunds education by a staggering $150 Billion dollars. To build a society that values knowledge and opportunity, we must lower the burden of college tuition, champion trade schools, strengthen programs from early education to K-12, pay teachers and school staff their worth, and ensure that every child has access to safe school facilities. I believe every student should have the opportunity to unlock their full potential and become architects of a brighter future.
Our Veterans, the epitome of bravery and sacrifice, embody the very best of our nation, and it is our solemn duty to honor their service by ensuring their well-being upon returning home. As a child of a veteran, it is a deeply personal mission that we provide our Veterans with unfettered access to healthcare, mental health resources, educational opportunities, and unwavering support from our public institutions. No Veteran should ever be denied treatment, left without a roof over their head, or denied advancement opportunities in this great country. I am steadfast in my commitment to ensure Washington never forgets their immense sacrifices.
In the West, rapid growth and private interests have placed undue pressure on our natural resources and public lands: threatening our precious water aquifers, limiting families from enjoying our wide-open, pristine spaces, and allowing large multinational companies unfettered access to land rights. Our public lands and watersheds are vital treasures that must be protected. As a member of Congress, I will fight to safeguard Idaho’s natural beauty and resources for this and future generations. Let us unite in the cause of protecting our natural heritage and being responsible stewards.
Our national defense is paramount to America’s success in this increasingly dynamic and evolving world. Today, we see prominent Democracies backsliding, Dictators and Autocrats threatening to upend the global system, and nations becoming noticeably more bold in their intelligence gathering operations and willingness to reach beyond their borders. We need to be investing in the offensive and defensive technologies of tomorrow to confront the threats our nation faces and ensure that the greatest fighting force the world has ever known has the readiness and training to keep all Americans, home and abroad, safe. In the coming decades, our nation will face a vastly different cybersecurity landscape, the rise of generative A.I., and continued aggression from both China and Russia. I fully support investing in our nation’s defensive capabilities and our brave servicemembers and their families who shoulder the weight of these challenges.
In America, our freedoms are what make us unique. The freedom to love, the freedom to privacy, and the freedom to express your opinions are hallmarks of our democracy and must be preserved. When it comes to a woman’s right to choose, I believe that it should never be the place of the government to dictate how a woman makes decisions about her health. No politician or interest group should be making decisions for individuals, and I’ll fight to keep it that way. The government has no place in the doctor’s office, in the bedroom, or in the deeply personal decisions that families face each and every day. Reversing the damage done to Idaho families and Idaho’s healthcare industry must be a priority.
SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE
Let us recognize the truth behind Social Security and Medicare: they are not entitlements but earned benefits through decades of hard work and contributions to society. Social Security and Medicare provide crucial healthcare coverage, enable peaceful aging in place, and offer peace of mind to millions. We cannot allow those in Congress who seek to reform and strip these programs to succeed. Millions of Americans depend on these vital programs long after their retirement, and as a representative, I would be committed to both preserving and expanding them for current and future generations.
Our campaign is about more than a single candidate, it’s
about communities, and I need your help!
