Building A Fair Economy

We must build an economy that works for everyone, where prosperity is widely shared and everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed. This means raising the federal minimum wage to lift millions of Americans out of poverty. We need comprehensive tax reform to ensure everyone is paying their fair share. I support the Buffett rule, which would ensure that those making a million dollars or more per year do not pay a lower tax rate than middle-class families. I am also fighting to eliminate the unfair loophole that allows hedge fund managers to pay a lower tax rate on their income than other professions. The current tax code incentivizes corporate inversions, moving jobs and profits offshore. This must change.
