Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (5)

Question 1

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid and other infrastructure in the U.S.?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Brian Forde:

Healthcare is a human right -- that's why I believe in Medicare for everyone. I've lived under a single-payer healthcare system and I know the good and the bad. I also know what it's like to get denied health insurance for a pre-existing condition. I'll never forget going to the pharmacy without health insurance and trying to buy an inhaler – health insurance or not I needed to breathe – and being charged $400 instead of the $7 everyone else was paying.

In Congress, I will fight to:

  • Expand Medicare for all – limiting excess spending and curbing cost overages while providing exceptional healthcare for all Americans
  • Expand Title X family planning funding
  • Create of an Open Source Electronic Medical Record system
Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House.
Respuesta de Brian Forde:

More than 30% of our friends and neighbors in the 45th district are foreign born – including my mom. As the son of an immigrant, I understand the important contributions immigrants make to our nation – and the sacrifices they make. I'll work towards compassionate and comprehensive reform of our immigration system.

As a member of Congress, I will:

  • Support a clean DACA bill that provides a path to citizenship for DREAMers
  • Provide a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million hardworking and tax-paying undocumented immigrants in the U.S.
  • Work to reduce the fraud and abuse of H-1B and L1 visas fraud that enables companies to underpay foreign workers and replace American workers
  • Propose the Keep Families Together Act which will prevent immigration authorities from separating undocumented parents from their children
Question 4

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of Californians and the federal water project infrastructure in California?
