AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE

Obamacare has been a disaster for Illinois. Many counties only have two options for consumers, and our healthcare costs have only gone up over the last decade. We can, and must, do better.

Having worked in the healthcare industry, I will push for real reform that will increase transparency in billing, which will foster competition among healthcare systems. I also believe consumers should have more options in the marketplace—and I will work to cut costs by giving families more flexibility in their healthcare coverage options.

Both initiatives will make healthcare more accessible and more affordable.

ECONOMY

Today’s economy is fragile. We must cut red tape, lower taxes, and take down the barriers to growth to strengthen our economy and get America moving again.

Our economy is struggling at its core. Businesses cannot hire employees fast enough to fill positions that are open, and Joe Biden and his administration are doing nothing to curb inflation or help get Americans back to work. I will work to pass legislation that will stimulate growth and quicken the economic recovery.

EDUCATION

Our kids have suffered from being out of school for too long. We have one of the highest collective tax burdens in the country to fund teachers and schools. The teachers unions have held our kids back long enough—it is time for them to be back in the classroom full-time.

We also must address what is being done to water down curriculums nationwide and fill our kids heads with opinions rather than facts. We need to give our kids the tools to succeed. I support getting back to scholastics and our schools helping our kids improve their critical thinking skills—not being told what to think. We must protect our children and give them the fundamentals of education.

ELECTION INTEGRITY

Recent events have brought to light problems with our election processes. We need a photo ID to buy cough syrup and to get on an airplane—we should need a photo ID to vote. Creating a paper trail for all votes cast is also imperative for voter integrity. We should switch to optical scan ballots nationwide to do so.

IMMIGRATION

The crisis at our southern border requires immediate federal action. It is threatening our communities by increasing drug trafficking, bringing more criminals into our country, and costing taxpayers billions. This, combined with Illinois’ sanctuary state policies, are putting us all at risk. The federal government must enforce the laws on the southern border and continue constructing the wall.

Legal immigration is something I fully support. My grandparents brought my mother to this country as a child to find a better life and pursue the American Dream. Eliminating border checkpoints and refusing to deport those who commit violent crimes makes every resident less safe.

INFRASTRUCTURE

I oppose tax and fee hikes on Illinoisians. In our state we have been burdened by higher tolls, higher taxes, and any number of fees that have been passed already. Congress pursuing a high tax agenda, coupled with policies that will create even higher utility rates, would make Illinois even less affordable. I am running because we need a tax break, not a tax hike.

I will work to lower taxes on working families and oppose the high-tax, high-fee agenda being pushed in Washington to pay for their radical spending.

JOB CREATION

The last year has been a disaster for millions of Americans. From layoffs to slowdowns in receiving unemployment benefits, Americans are struggling, and Congress has failed to provide real relief. In Congress, I will work to expand workforce training programs and increase opportunities to help connect hardworking Illinoisians with jobs.

POLICE & LAW ENFORCEMENT

The ‘defund the police’ and ‘end cash bail’ agendas are detrimental to the safety of our communities. They make our families less safe. I oppose releasing violent felons on their own recognizance, and I oppose defunding our local police departments. The radical, left-wing agenda attacking our police needs to end.

The current proposed police reform by this administration is a threat to our families’ safety.

Sensible criminal justice reforms, improved police training, and procedural improvements are initiatives we can all get behind, and ones that I will support.

SMALL BUSINESS

Joe Biden’s proposal to raise taxes on small businesses across the country shows he is out-of-touch. It will only harm job creation efforts.

Small businesses have been hit hardest by the pandemic and the taxing of PPP loans. Small businesses are the foundation of our economy. They employ 46% of Illinois residents. We need to help them create jobs and foster thriving communities, not add to their burden with more taxes and regulations.

TAXES

I oppose tax and fee hikes on Illinoisians. In our state we have been burdened by higher tolls, higher taxes, and any number of fees that have been passed already. Congress pursuing a high tax agenda, coupled with policies that will create even higher utility rates, would make Illinois even less affordable. I am running because we need a tax break, not a tax hike.

I will work to lower taxes on working families and oppose the high-tax, high-fee agenda being pushed in Washington to pay for their radical spending.

FINDING OUT WHAT MATTERS TO YOU

"It is my hope to be a fresh voice in Congress for the citizens of the 6th District and to represent the values that our communities share."

As a mom, a businesswoman, and a lifelong resident of the western suburbs of Chicago, I have seen the effects of bad leadership in Washington—and in Illinois. Our lives have been negatively impacted in many ways. From the higher cost of living to the loss of many small businesses to the watering down of our kids’ education, this country is headed in the wrong direction. We deserve a representative that will protect our interests now and for the future. We deserve a Congress that works for the people—not for Nancy Pelosi. As an Illinois Representative, I will protect your liberties and freedoms and make a better tomorrow.
