A living wage for all workers, including pay for overtime and a $15 hour national minimum wage.
Getting big money out of politics by enforcing existing campaign finance rules; passing a constitutional amendment; making it clear that Congress and the states have the power to regulate money in elections; and establishing a publicly financed, transparent system of campaign financing that multiplies small donations, along the lines of the Fair Elections Now Act.
