Garry supports Progressive issues and will fight for them while in Congress.

Living Wage

If you work 40 hours a week you should not be living in poverty. It's criminal that the Republicans in Congress refuse to raise the minimum wage to a living wage.  

Wages in this county have been stagnant for far too long. When elected, the first piece of legislation I introduce will be to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of at least $15.00 an hour. 

This will allow the hourly worker the opportunity to get ahead and not have to live paycheck to paycheck. 

As a small business owner, I never started anyone at minimum wage.  I believed it is imperative to pay fair wages to all my employees.

I also will work to make it the law that companies pay women the same as men for the same job.  As a small business owner I always paid women the same amount that I paid men for the same job.


Health Care

Health care is a right, rather than a privilege.

For the present, I support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) and oppose the Republicans' attempt to repeal this legislation that has made health care possible and affordable for millions of Americans.

But moving forward, we need a strong universal care (single payer) system - and I will fight to bring that to the citizens of the 2nd district of Virginia and the rest of the country.

Scott Taylor voted to repeal ObamaCare. It's imperative that we not allow this to happen.

Jobs

It's time to get America working again.  We need to provide more well paying jobs for all our citizens.  

We need to invest in jobs in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) that will help reinvigorate the economy and the job force.  The future of jobs in America are STEAM related, and we need to actively train our young people in these fields. These STEAM jobs pay a living wage and will increase the workforce dramatically across the United States.  

We need to offer tax credits to small businesses that provide training to their employees in these fields and that agree to continue to employee these individuals.

Scott Taylor’s policies have not created any jobs here in the 2nd district of Virginia and have harmed job growth.


Affordable Housing

If someone is working hard and providing for their family, housing should not be a daily worry. Housing stability will help reinvigorate the economy in the United States.

For far too long housing has become increasingly less affordable in this county. Too many families are living with the fear of losing the stability of their housing and that is unfair.  Its a shame that in this country we have so many homeless people including a record number of homeless veterans.

It's a national epidemic that needs to be addressed, and as your Congressman I plan to address it.


Off shore drilling

I am baffled at the irresponsibility of the Trump administration on their stance on offshore drilling.

We need to protect our environment and our natural resources,  and the policies of the current administration are putting them in harms way. There is no oil derrick or pipeline that does not leak.


Support for unions

We must support our unions. Without unions there would be no middle class.

Collective bargaining has won raises for all all workers. Unions gave us the 40-hour work week, paid vacation, the right to redress, and a right to a safe work environment.

I will strongly support Unions, and fight against Republican attempts to enact union-killing Right-To-Work laws.
