  • Bipartisan cooperation in the Senate and House, in the current antagonistic environment
  • The future of affordable health care
  • Full access to quality education from early childhood through college, employment justice with a living wage and equal pay for women, tax relief for the working poor… as wealth and power become increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few
  • Threats to protection and preservation of National Monuments, public lands, water resources, and marine sanctuaries
  • Immigration policies and practices
  • How fares the republic? American democracy in an era of dark money and fake news
  • Alleged Russian intervention in US elections, and US-Russia relations in such conflict zones as Syria and Ukraine
