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 their policies should be transportable across state lines.  I will work to cut costs by giving families more flexibility in their healthcare coverage options.

These initiatives will make healthcare more accessible and more affordable.

ECONOMY

Today’s economy is fragile. We must cut red tape, curb spending and take down the barriers to growth in order to get America moving again.

Our economy is struggling at its core. Businesses cannot hire employees to fill positions that are open. Joe Biden and his administration have sent inflation soaring, and their policies have created a supply chain problem crippling the economy.

I will work to pass legislation that will ease inflation, stimulate growth and quicken the economic recovery.

EDUCATION

It is time to get back to scholastics – reading, writing and arithmetic. We should be re-implementing gifted programs and those for special needs students. Schools must advance our kids based on aptitude – not the color of their skin.

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 helping our kids improve their critical thinking skills—not being told what to think.

We must end the sexualization of our kids and protect parental rights.

Children are our future, and we must protect them.

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.

I will push to re-implement the need for 3 forms of ID to register to vote, and proof of ID at the polling booth.

IMMIGRATION

The crisis at our southern border continues to be a national crisis. Millions of migrants have entered illegally without consideration of their criminal or health history.  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

We all agree we need infrastructure improvements. So, we should pass legislation for infrastructure funding – not stuff the bill with special interest funding. Bigger bills mean bigger taxes.

I oppose tax and fee hikes on Illinoisians. In our state we are regularly burdened with higher tolls and higher taxes. 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 to curb the spending and stop the tax increases.

JOB CREATION

These past couple of  years have 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. We need to refund our police and make our communities more safe.

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. This coupled with a higher minimum wage 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

This administration’s exorbitant spending and money printing habits have caused inflation to soar. It is the highest it has been in decades, putting a hidden tax on Americans.

More spending leads to more taxes.

I will work to curb the spending in WDC and stop tax increases on working families. When in Washington I will work to push for spending caps to limit the amount we add to the national debt in order to pay for the Left’s radical spending.

ABORTION

I am proudly Pro-Life and oppose the Democrats' radical abortion agenda.

Sean Casten’s support for taxpayer funded and late term abortion is despicable and is directly in opposition with the values of his constituents. In Congress, I will proudly stand for life.

2nd Amendment

I am Pro – 2nd Amendment and believe we must protect our right to bear arms.

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 Chicago suburbs, 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.
