Fighting For Montanans, Not Corporations
There are many politicians in Washington DC who only look out for the well-being of their corporate donors. Hard-working Americans across the country have been ignored and forgotten by Congress, left to wonder who has their back and if they can afford to pay the bills.
Throughout his career, John has fought for everyday Montanans who have been taken advantage of. He has beat big banks and other special interest groups in court on behalf of regular Montanans. John will take that same passion and commitment with him to Congress. John will not take corporate PAC or corporate lobbyist money, but he will take support from groups that support the people like unions and Planned Parenthood. He knows Montana needs a representative who will hold Washington accountable and put Montanans and their families first.
Protecting Healthcare for Montanans
John believes that we need to put people’s health above insurance company and health industry profits. The current proposed healthcare law would be a disaster for families in Montana. It eliminates protections for people with pre-existing conditions, rips away coverage from 70,000 Montanans and causes premiums to increase for countless others. John believes healthcare is a right, and he supports affordable healthcare for everyone, and would vote for Medicare for All.
Bring Good Paying Jobs to Montana
As a small business owner, John’s top priority is to put Montanans into good paying jobs. He believes that no one should struggle to find work if they are willing to work hard. John also believes no one should have to rely on food stamps while working full time. Minimum wage needs to be a living wage, and if a living wage is $15, then we need to get there. That’s why John will support #EmployMT, a comprehensive strategy to create high-paying jobs, rebuild our infrastructure, invest in the workforce, and spur innovation in Montana
Montana Education for the Future
As a father with four kids going to public school, John understands the value of a great education. Education is the only way Montanans can stay competitive in a global economy, and to promote innovation and economic growth education should be freely available to all those who qualify and are interested. Montanans should be sure that John would support programs that recognize that a four year education is not necessary for everyone and that apprentice programs, trade schools, and community and tribal colleges need to be considered and funded in a comprehensive way.
