Position Papers
Here's what we can do to create new jobs and protect the ones we have.
California's Budget
The idea that California is broke is crazy. Although our state is in a budget hole today, the way out is well within our grasp. Californians have choices to make -- we simply have to face them.
Health Care
Californians deserve health care that works: simple, affordable, accessible. The answer is Medicare for All. When we take insurance companies out of the equation, we get better results for less money -- billions of dollars less.
