Support for Children with Disabilities

All parents want to see their children thrive in school, but when your child has a disability, this goal can seem out of reach. The parents of children with disabilities fight every day to get their children a fair education that ensures they continue to grow. This extra work compounds the already heroic task of…

Empowering Unions in the 21st Century Economy

Over the past two years, teachers marched in Illinois, Massachusetts, South Carolina, Arizona, and other states to win higher wages for themselves and better conditions for their students. The United Auto Workers struck a deal with General Motors to raise wages and prevent over-reliance on temporary labor. Airline workers are striking for better benefits. Last…

A New Way Forward for Healthcare in America

We are having the wrong conversation on healthcare.  Instead of addressing the underlying problems driving unaffordability and access, we Democrats are spending all our time arguing over who is the most zealous in wanting to cover Americans. Over who has wanted to do so longer. Over who cares more about the health of Americans.  We…

Ensuring Voter Access for Our Democracy

Voting is a pillar of our democracy that has helped keep our government accountable for hundreds of years. As generations of activists fought and died to protect and expand the right to vote, we won ourselves a more inclusive and representative government. We all know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s marches in Washington D.C….

Regulating Technology Firms in the 21st Century

The advancement of technology in America has driven the advancement of humanity nationally and globally. But technology has also outpaced our government’s understanding of it, and regulations are falling short of protecting us from Big Tech companies that are prioritizing profits over our well-being. Today, we live in a hyper-connected environment, led by these tech…

Restoring Democracy, Rebuilding Trust

Restoring Democracy, Rebuilding Trust Only 17% of Americans approve of the way Congress is handling its job; fewer believe members of Congress are doing their jobs with high levels of honesty and ethical standards. The Environmental Protection Agency, Food & Drug Administration, and Veterans Administration all have approval ratings that are underwater. The net approval…

It’s Worse Than You Think – Lower Emissions, Higher Ground

INTRODUCTION Our planet is a mess. The past four years have been the four hottest on record, and July 2019 was the hottest month ever recorded. Greenland is expected to lose 440 billion tons of ice this year, a rate that was the “worst-case scenario” for 2070. The West is on fire, the middle of…

Combating Gun Violence and Hate in America

Combating Gun Violence and Hate in America Gun violence is a scourge in this country. Nearly 40,000 Americans die every year to gun violence: 24,000 from suicide and 15,000 from homicide.

An Exciting Time in South Carolina

Thank you all for your continued support!  Without you, this campaign wouldn’t be here.  As it is, we are at #9 in the latest CNN rankings and climbing fast. 🙂 I’m spending this last weekend before the debate in South Carolina, one of the early primary states.  We are at 3% here.  This is my…

My Plan to Restore Democracy

I’ve been running for President for over a year now, and I’ve become even more convinced that moneyed interests have captured our democratic system.  Especially since the decision in Citizens United, the amount of money that it takes to run a campaign is ridiculous, and it ensures that the rich will have both an easier time......

Pride Month

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. In some ways, we as a country have made great strides in providing equal rights to LGBTQ+ individuals, highlighted by the decision in Obergefell in 2015. That Supreme Court decision had a tangible, positive impact on the lives of millions of Americans who were looking......

On This Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful day with loved ones and family. Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971, though it has been celebrated in some form since the 1860s.  Today, many Americans—especially those who have not experienced personal loss in this arena—have a natural inclination not to look too......

The Man on the Street

As you know, I’ve been running for President for a while.  Our campaign publicly launched in February of 2018 in the New York Times. Still, most people had never heard of me.  This led to many awkward conversations that went like this: “So what kind of work do you do?” “I’m running for President of the United States.”......

When I'm President, We Will Have Clean Drinking Water. That's For Sure.

Hello and thank you for the support!  It means a ton to me and the team.

The Campaign as Family

We were in Des Moines the other day wrapping up a town hall.  It was Zach, Carly, Luke, and I.  It was raining and chilly.  Our white Chevy Suburban was parked far across the parking lot.

The Canine Dividend (April Fools' Day!)

Brief GDP continues to go up and up, while the number of dogs per household has remained stagnant. Nothing would do more to improve the mental health of every American than providing them with 1,000 dogs (of varying breeds) per month, free and clear, no questions asked. Studies show that simply by petting a friendly......

A Week in the North

What Change Can Look Like

I hope that you are doing well. We have all been horrified by the tragic shootings in New Zealand.  That so many innocent people were killed simply for attending their place of worship is reprehensible.  It shows how destructive beliefs can drive the worst of human atrocity.  As the son of immigrants myself, extremity and violence towards an......

A Week in Iowa

Hello all.  What a week!  I spent the first half of the week in Iowa where we had over a dozen events across the state.
