Haley’s Priorities

Affordable Healthcare for all Americans

Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Every single American deserves access to affordable, high-quality, and accessible healthcare. This should be something we all agree on, but instead of working toward this goal, Republicans in Washington have focused on dismantling the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Growing a 21st Century Workforce

Michigan’s economy will thrive when our middle class and working class families are making enough to live comfortably. Having worked with Midwest manufacturing companies both large and small throughout my career, I know the importance of valuing hard work and technical talent. I support increasing the minimum wage and encouraging larger businesses to support the $15 minimum wage.

Quality Education for Students

As the daughter of a retired Detroit public school teacher, I am a fierce advocate for Michigan’s public education system. I am very troubled by the directives coming out of Betsy DeVos’ Department of Education. From pre-K to higher education, we need a member of Congress who will fight back against the Trump-DeVos education agenda and advocate for Michigan’s educators, students, and families.

Our Promise to Seniors

In Congress, I will fight any attempt to privatize Social Security or turn Medicare into a voucher program. These are programs that seniors paid into their entire working lives, and we must keep our promise to them by ensuring these programs are protected now and for generations to come.

Protecting our “Pure Michigan” Environment

I believe climate change is a serious problem and needs to be addressed immediately before it is too late. When an overwhelming number of scientists around the world have cited the realities and dangerous implications of climate change, this is not a partisan issue, but the global challenge of our generation that requires dedicated leadership to tackle.

A Plan for Immigration

The Trump administration’s divisive response to immigration issues is appalling and harmful. We must never forget that America is a country of immigrants. Recent actions by the Trump administration and Congress violate not only individual liberties, but also undermine our system of federalism and the principles of local control.

Advocating for Equality

I am a lifelong friend of the LGBTQ+ community and believe LGBTQ+ individuals should have the same rights as all other Americans. In recent years, we have witnessed progress when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights, much of which has come from court decisions such as the now-famous Supreme Court case that legalized gay marriage. We still have work to do in Michigan.

Commonsense Gun Laws

We must end loopholes in the background checks system, finally pass a bill to crack down on bump stocks, and preserve current protections against gun silencers. These are commonsense reforms that cannot wait, and they will get my attention on day one in office.

Veterans and Defense

The mission of the Department of Veterans Affairs is to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise “to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan.” Having learned from family members who served in the military and in combat zones, I understand the special role that veterans play in our society. I have developed workforce training programs and have spent time on military bases to develop training programs for service members.
