The system is rigged. Let’s fight to fix it.
Many Nevadans are working longer hours just to put food on the table. The current system ensures that most new wealth flows to the top 1%. Jesse will take on the rigged system in Washington and on Wall Street to fight for an economy that benefits all. Jesse will fight to reform our campaign finance system and to make the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes. Jesse will fight for a minimum wage that can support a family, end wage discrimination, ensure equal pay for working women, and protect Social Security so Nevadans can retire with dignity.
Medicare for All. It’s Time.
The husband of a physician, Jesse believes that healthcare should be a right and not a privilege. He supports Medicare-for-All to guarantee every Nevada family the health care they need at an affordable price. He believes a woman’s health care decisions should be between her and her doctor. He will fight to protect the right to choose and provide critical women’s health services by protecting funding for Planned Parenthood.
Immigrants Deserve our Respect.
As one of the millions of hard-working American Muslims, Jesse will defend the rights of all Americans against Trump and the Republican fear machine. He’ll fight to end Trump’s war on immigrant families ensuring others have the same opportunities he had to succeed.
Education is Important. Let’s Finally Treat it That Way.
The people of Nevada are struggling. Nevada’s public educational system is ranked 50th out of 51. Jesse will work towards more jobs and education – not more jails and incarceration. He’ll fight to stop the school-to-prison pipeline, end racial profiling, and reform our broken criminal justice system. Jesse will fight to invest in students and make public colleges and universities tuition-free for all Americans.
Our Climate is Changing.
Jesse believes that climate change and the environmental crisis is a social problem not a political issue. He will stand up to the big polluters and oil companies that dictate Donald Trump’s energy policies. Jesse will fight to keep toxic waste out of Yucca Mountain and protect our air, land, and water. Jesse will battle climate change by supporting a transition to clean, renewable energy sources like wind and solar. This will lead to good paying sustainable jobs for the workers of Nevada.
Citizens United was a Terrible Decision. We Need Reform.
The incredible amount of money going into political campaigns is starting to get corrosive, and is making politicians beholden to the forces that are working to elect them. Simply put; it is unsustainable.
I was proud to see the Nevada legislature pass a proposal to overturn Citizens United, which I fully support. If Washington had nearly as much courage as Nevada, our country would be a lot better off.
If elected to the United States Senate, I will only support Supreme Court Justices that will put a stop to this madness by overturning the Court’s horrible Citizens United ruling back in the late 2000’s. It was a bad ruling then, and it is proving to be a disaster now.
