My values line up with Democratic values. I have always been fiscally responsible, but I believe that people are what matter. I don't believe a country is a business. Sure, I believe that the economy is extremely important, but a country should invest in its people - not just keep squeezing more and more money out of the economy to make the rich richer. I believe income and racial inequality are the biggest threats facing our county and our country. Investing in people means truly valuing and funding public education which is equal for all. Investing in people means healthcare, and a roof over your head ought to be accessible for citizens of the richest country in the world. Investing in people means protecting our collective environment. I believe in equality and autonomy for women. These are my values.
