My name is Laura Wells and I’m running for Congress in California’s District 13.
Here’s why we're running, and running hard!
The problem in our country is that there are so many basics we don’t have, basics like housing, healthcare, living wages, debt-free education, and real justice. We used to have some of these, and other countries have them now! The U.S. is the wealthiest country in the world, and there’s no excuse for not having the basics. There’s no excuse, but there is a reason: the billionaires and their corporations have bought out both parties and are running our country.
Let’s have a debate! A real debate between arguably the most progressive Congressperson in Washington, Barbara Lee, who still must act as a “team player” to her Democratic Party, and a Green Party candidate with solid Green New Deal values, who never takes corporate money.
Imagine having Greens in Congress, not beholden to billionaire and corporate donors, enacting Green New Deal solutions so that everyone has the basics. We all know where the money can be found to fund housing, healthcare, education, and a clean environment:
TAX THE RICH AND STOP THE WARS!
Let’s raise our expectations, use our power, apply pressure, and demand that Congress move toward what we want, and need. In a true democracy, a debate between the candidates is a great place to start. Let’s have a debate.
There Are Solutions.
