It is unacceptable to me that 18 million American families pay over half of their income toward housing. It is unacceptable to me that 500,000 Americans are homeless. I believe every American has a fundamental right to safe, decent and affordable housing.
Tens of thousands of Americans die every year because they lack decent health insurance. There is no middle ground when it comes to heath care. We must guarantee affordable health care to every American through Medicare for All.
I’m heartened to see Americans checking out businesses more thoroughly. The only way capitalism survives and coexists with democracy is if people do business in decent ways. You can’t go on funding extremists, which is what Americans basically do.
Dem candidates tonight are largely qualified, intelligent, compassionate, committed, decent people who advocate policies to help Americans and to help America grow. No comparison to the GOP. Should be a source of pride to all Dems.
Housing is so unaffordable in San Francisco that entire families are forced to live in 6'x10' rooms and share a kitchen with 30 other families. In the richest country in the world we are going to end that disgrace. Decent housing must be a right of all Americans. @janeosanders
Where are the Republicans who say they stand for "family values?" Where are the conservatives who say they want to protect unborn children? Where are the right-wingers who rail against sexual "perversion?" Where are the voices of decent, sane, good Americans who have had enough?
Think big, not small. It is not "radical" to demand that all Americans receive decent wages, guaranteed health care, quality education, affordable housing and a clean environment. We need a government that represents all of us, not just the 1%.
Republican senators who haven't spoken out against the Trump family separation policy are "gutless wonders," Sen. Hirono declares. "They need to step up and act like decent Americans who understand the history of our country and the role that immigrants have played."
