Jan Ting on Principles & Values

 


Things are broken in Washington DC, and I'm outraged

I'm in this race because I'm convinced that things are broken in Washington DC. The people that are there, both Democrats and Republicans, have been doing nothing about it. I'm concerned about the big problems that exist in our society-Social Security, Medicare, & healthcare generally-all of which are headed for a train wreck. The problems are much more serious, even, than we perceive them to be. I'm convinced that this current partisan atmosphere is not one that is conducive to the big solution needed
