It feels like our country is moving backward. Hardworking families across Central New York, the Hudson Valley and Catskills are being left behind as Washington Republicans vote to take away healthcare and give tax breaks to the super rich on the backs of working people.
We need to fight for universal affordable health care, a tax code that works for working people and the middle class, and to restore opportunity for everyone in this region. My story is one of upward mobility, but for too many families now days, the American Dream is out of reach. We owe it to ourselves, to our community, and to our country to restore the American Dream.
