Meet Deb Haaland
I'm running for Congress because I believe that New Mexico can be a place of strong, safe communities where our kids can be happy growing up, and can build a life here when they are grown. We need honest and proven leadership that is committed to serving New Mexico communities and the people of the First Congressional District of New Mexico. I would be honored to be that voice.
CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENT
The fossil fuel industry is making billions by putting our communities in harm’s way, and forcing us to pay to clean up their mess. Meanwhile, extreme weather fueled by climate change is creating massive droughts across the Southwest, historic flooding across the Southeast, and is forcing people out of their homes from Louisiana to Alaska.
ECONOMY AND TAXES
Income inequality is out of control in America. The rich are getting richer, and working folks are only getting poorer. If we want a strong and just Democracy, we have to think big. America isn’t broke, but we have been pillaged by billionaires and big corporations who get rich off our infrastructure and expect working people to foot the bill. No more.
Once we fix the imbalance in our tax system, we will have a huge surplus to rebuild our national safety net. Economic success requires equal access to resources that allow working families to live with dignity and free from violence and poverty.
MEDICARE FOR ALL
It’s time to challenge corporate dominance over our health, and a corporate healthcare system that is inefficient, rocky, and wildly expensive. No American should face bankruptcy, death, or poverty because of a lack of healthcare. We need national public health insurance -- Medicare for All -- a model that has been proven across the world to lower costs, increase efficiency, and ensure the most people have access to care. Health care is a human right.
