We have a solemn obligation to protect our environment and to take a sustainable approach to managing our natural resources. As the former president of a solar technology company, I know firsthand that the preservation of our air, water, and wildlife for future generations is not only a moral imperative, but also an economic necessity.
Education is the key to building a middle-class life and a strong American economy. While we must invest in K-12 education and provide our children with the best possible start, it’s also essential that we expand access to affordable, quality education for those going on to four-year colleges and those pursuing career, technical, and vocational education programs or apprenticeships.
Retirement security is a pillar of the American dream. Our seniors have worked hard and deserve to live their golden years in dignity. Now is not the time to turn our backs on them by cutting Social Security and Medicare.
Supporting our veterans, and ensuring they receive the benefits they've earned, will always be one of my top priorities. Our nation prides itself on our sacred obligation to prepare and equip those we send into harm's way, and to care for them when they come home. It is our job in Congress to fulfill this obligation.
The defense and the security of our nation are extremely important to my work in Congress and our country as a whole. America's security impacts every single American and cannot become a partisan issue.
