CARPETBAGGERS &PARACHUTE CANDIDATES: #CA04 is currently represented in Washington by Tom McClintock, who's never lived here, and Democrat Brynne Kennedy recently moved into the district strictly to run for office. I'll sponsor a bill which mandates no sitting Congressperson may represent a district in which they do not currently reside, and no one may seek to represent a district which they have not been a legal resident of for at least one year prior to running.
MONEY IN POLITICS: Citizens United was a ruinous decision which must be overturned. I support Bernie’s plan to get corporate money out of politics, and I will never solicit or accept contributions from PAC's, corporations or "dark money" interests.
MILITARY:We spend far more on defense than any other country in the world. We've wasted trillions and lost many of our bravest on endless wars as a result of this misguided approach to our defense. I support a complete overhaul of military spending.
FOREIGN AFFAIRS: The United States has no business intervening in the affairs of another nation, until or unless human rights are being violated, and then we have an obligation to intervene.
