Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Levitt's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Our country's severe jobs crisis continues. In employment statistics, this is masked by the fact that so many Americans have given up looking for work and have stopped filing for unemployment. But struggling un- and under-employed American families aren't fooled."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Education and innovation have been key to our country's competitive edge. Nowadays we have been habitually, dangerously neglecting education -- under-funding and cutting schools budgets, teachers, their salaries and benefits, and pretending that charter schools or vouchers will solve the problem."
  • Medicare for All
Excerpt: "Poll after poll shows Americans want Single Payer health care, also known as Medicare for All. Doctors strongly prefer it too. Single Payer provides care for every American keeps costs down by having a large pool of individuals, It's essentially what the 35 countries that have better health care than the US are doing right."
  • Choice
Excerpt: "I support reproductive and family planning rights for every American. It's almost funny when a congress that 48% of us say we consider corrupt and only 5% thinks does even an OK job, claims it should be in charge of our moral lives and toughest personal decisions."
  • Out of Afghanistan
Excerpt: "Leaving Afghanistan in 2013 can save thousand of lives, millions of needless injuries, and trillions of dollars."
