Issues

Campaign themes

Kleinhendler lists the following issues on his campaign website:

  • Improve Obamacare: "Obamacare was a step in the right direction. Among the benefits: millions of people now qualify for subsidies to pay for insurance, patients can no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions, young adults can stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26 and there are prescription drug savings for seniors. Despite all of these benefits, there is room for improvement so that all Americans can have access to affordable health care."
  • End Corporate Welfare: "The treasury loses hundreds of billions a year in unnecessary tax loopholes that benefit large corporations and certain industries. Further, many of the super-rich pay taxes at the same rate as those in the lower 25 percentile. By eliminating 'corporate welfare,' the government can direct these resources towards deficit reduction and ultimately to lowering tax rates on middle and low-income earners."
  • Amnesty for Undocumented Workers: "There are more than 12 million undocumented workers in the United States. For the most part, these are hard working people who came to this country seeking to live the American Dream and forge a better future for their families. While we do not treat the violation of our immigration laws lightly, the shear size of this group and their impact on our economy warrants sweeping reforms that will benefit these immigrant workers and further strengthen our American culture and economy."
  • We Must Help Our Veterans: "There is no greater sacrifice we ask of our citizens than to take up arms and fight for our way of life. The brave men and women of our armed services deserve the utmost respect and care when they return from service. Unfortunately, Congress has taken their commitment for granted and has needlessly cut back on benefits and refused to recognize some of the trauma these troops return home with and suffer from. This must be addressed immediately. Let’s make sure our young men and women returning home have a chance at a bright future. We owe them that much."
  • A Real Sandy Recovery: "Many victims of the Sandy hurricane are still suffering. Reimbursements have been delayed, rebuilding has stalled and tens of millions in aid have been spent on areas unaffected by the storm. Here in Ocean County, the storm's effects still linger. We must take action."
