Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Singh's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

  • Opportunity: "As a mother, I am deeply concerned that the opportunities we had for advancement in our education and careers are declining for our children. We continue to borrow for ourselves against their futures. Society is failing our children: the very definition of the American Dream—that the next generation will have better opportunities than their parents—is quickly moving out of their reach."
  • Lower Taxes, Reduced Waste: "Washington spends our hard earned money irresponsibly—racking up billions of dollars in unpaid bills each day and asking us for more! A dollar wasted by the government is a dollar which cannot then be used for someone truly in need, in our schools, or on our crumbling infrastructure."
  • Smarter Healthcare: "As a physician, I believe access to affordable healthcare is imperative, but must be approached responsibly and without sacrificing the very quality of care we want to provide. Big business and insurance companies all had a seat at the table on the latest healthcare legislation. Yet without representation from the very people who provide care, the doctors and nurses, who has been looking out for patients?"
