You can place all the blame you want on George W. Bush, Barack H. Obama or how Trump won. But the simple fact is that it was Congress who voted twice to start wars without raising taxes to pay for them. It's Congress that has wasted taxpayer dollars fighting to repeal a law that's already withstood Constitutional scrutiny at the hands of the Supreme Court. It's Congress who has failed to take the lead on climate change, immigration, a living wage or ending our stupid War on Drugs and Women's Health. It's Congress that is most to blame for what's truly broken in our country, regardless of which person sits in the big chair in the Oval Office."

My Top 10

1. Legalize industrial hemp and marijuana adding trillions of industrial $$$ into our economy. Saving 100s of billions on law enforcement. Eliminating the need for many prison cells across the nation. Close private for profit prisons and re-purpose them for indoor agricultural use making them more profitable for owners and providing even better jobs to the communities in which they reside. . 

2. Create a living wage increase commensurate  with CEO to minimum wage pay scale from the 1960s and double military base pay.

3. Equal rights at work (equal pay) or home (marriage) and at the doctors  for all people (ALL MEANS ALL) in the USA.

4. Create high speed rail and help update and improve inner city public transportation.

5. Return retirement age back to 65.

6. Fix immigration with a true path to citizenship. provide better border security by creating more military bases across our border to keep terrorists out.

7. Strengthen and expand the A.C.A. until single pay comes for a vote.

8. Eliminate corn subsidies for ethanol replacing corn with hemp, leading towards 100% renewable, cleaner, cheaper and closer to home energy sources.

9. Fund adult and child education building new schools.

10. Expand wind and solar power, updating our power grid to eliminate the 30% lost energy every day.

Russ Hurley is honest, direct, thoughtful, and considerate. He listens to what is said to him. He always tries to do what is right, to fully understand an issue, and to support the rights of others. It does not matter to Russ if you are gay or straight, black or white, rich or poor. It matters to him that you are a human being. We need more people like Russ Hurley in Washington.”
