Christine is interviewed by Don Ashford of KTRT radio in Twisp.
It's way past time we solve this humanitarian and economic issue. I will work for a path to documentation and citizenship for the millions of people who have been here for years, contributing and paying taxes in our communities. In the #WA04 we know our economy would take a big hit if undocumented people were no longer working. These folks are our neighbors, friends, and co- workers. When I’m elected I will work to create comprehensive immigration reform.
My stance on
I believe health care is a right, and not a privilege for the rich or folks lucky enough to be employed by a company offering medical coverage as a benefit. I would work tirelessly to continue the basic coverage features of the Affordable Care Act. In addition, I would encourage my colleagues in Congress to push this to the next level, which is health care for all. All other advanced countries in the world have found a way to accomplish this goal. My confidence in American ingenuity and innovation to solve this problem is steadfast. A recent Gallop poll indicates nearly six in ten Americans want a single-payer system. Even Republicans support the idea with 41 percent favoring a single-payer system.
My stance on
We cannot ignore the changes occurring on our planet. We already know they are responsible for new migration patterns of people as they seek food or water. And in some areas of the globe people are retreating from too much water. We have two choices, be a leader on this issue or be left behind. We need a leader on the issue of climate change, a person who will work with others to find solutions to a problem that is real and not going away. You deserve a leader willing to dig deep into how proposals affect working people and to see through the distortions promoted by the money interests in this issue.
My stance on
Congress has been kicking this can down the road for more than two decades. I believe now is the ideal time to find a solution to immigration that will not only benefit thousands of people living in our congressional district, but will bolster our local economies as well.
I will be a strong voice in Congress to demand we address this issue now, not later. Creating a path to citizenship for eligible individuals is our future. This system must include a detailed application process and a stringent e-verify program. In addition, we need a manageable Agricultural Guest Worker program.
