Robert Tager offers progressive and fresh alternatives to the past decades of ineffective leadership in the 12th Congressional District, State, and Nation. Issues and Positions.
My positions are very simple and crafted through common sense:
Country must always come before party in policy considerations.
What is good for the middle class and working class is also good for America.
Progressive ideas are what moves our Country forward.
We must end the needless suffering and death of people simply because they can not afford health insurance. Health care is a human right and everyone must have access, regardless of income level. Social Security and Medicare must be preserved and strengthened, and the VA properly funded and ran to serve our Veterans. There must be respect for our individual freedoms and rights including reproductive choice and equality, and recognition that "All people are created equal" regardless of their gender, race, national origin, or sexual orientation and identity. Our reliance on fossil fuels must end, fracking in our state not be allowed, offshore drilling off our coast be prohibited, and sugar subsides ended. Renewable energy must be promoted and incentivized to quicken the progress towards energy independence, clean environment, and tens of thousands new high paying jobs. Minimum wage must be increased, tax cuts for the lower 98% be given, and good paying jobs created here in our District, State, and Nation. Voter disenfranchisement, including gerrymandering, must end.
We have a lot of work to do.
Gutless Gus is not for us. He has never voted for our benefit. He has consistently voted against our interests and in favor of those special interest groups that support him through millions of campaign contributions. Our District, State, and Nation needs a representative that fights to better the majority of the people and not the few elites. We need representation that puts the good of the people and Country first. I am that person. I will fight for all of the people and not corporations or special interests.
I am asking everyone that wants to support our campaign to fill out and sign the below linked Petition and mail it to me. Petitions must have original signatures so please do not email it. Candidate Petition Please distribute this link to all your friends and family and other supporters. Make multiple copies and bring them with you when you go to lunch with friends
