Epstein: 1) Reform healthcare

Stevens: My priorities in Congress are clear: help create jobs, lower health care costs, and fix Michigan’s roads. I remember 2009 — economists were singing Detroit’s swan song. The auto industry was in crisis. Analysts wanted to let Detroit go bankrupt. I disagreed: I believed then, as I do today, that Detroit hustles harder. So I went to Washington and hustled, serving as chief of staff for President Obama’s auto rescue that helped save more than 200,000 jobs. Today we face a different kind of crisis — his name is Donald Trump. I’m running for Congress to stand up to his reckless agenda and fight for Michigan again.
Nye: I want Congress to serve citizens instead of special interests. It will be done by three reform-focused bills:
The American Anti-Corruption Act to stop bribery by lobbyists, block politicians from fundraising during working hours, close the revolving door, outlaw secret money, and end gerrymandering.
The Fair Representation Act (HR3057) to abandon winner-take-all elections and adopt ranked-choice voting, giving voters more choices and electing several winners reflecting the real views of all constituents.
The Comprehensive American Audit Act to eliminate waste, fraud, and corruption across all departments.
Schwartz: (1) End the war on herbal medicine, thereby reducing the opioid problem. (2) Repeal civil asset forfeiture laws, which allow the government to confiscate your property without even accusing you of committing a crime. (3) Oppose foreign quagmires & trade wars.
