Combatting COVID-19 Head-On and Reinvigorating Our Economy
As our nation faces the fight of our lifetime, Young understands the important role congressional leaders must play to guide our nation through this crisis and ensure it comes out the other end stronger and more prepared than ever before.
Young will work to ensure Americans have access to quality and affordable healthcare that can help them through this crisis and will work with federal officials to minimize the damage of this pandemic and put in place guardrails to prevent a resurgence or future pandemic.
As a Congresswoman, Young will work with her colleagues to study the early missteps responding to this pandemic and invest in our emergency preparedness. Young will work on bipartisan legislation that invests in our economy, gives small businesses the resources they need to recover, and brings jobs back quickly.
Fighting to Create Jobs and Strengthen the Economy
As a small business owner, Young knows what it takes to create an environment where jobs can be created and workers can thrive.
Young believes that the hard working men and women of Southern California are taxed and regulated enough. She will fight to keep taxes low so that individuals and families can keep more of their hard earned dollars because they know how best to spend their money, not Washington politicians.
Young will fight to help create and keep good paying jobs right here in Southern California. She will work to reduce unnecessary regulations, increase trade, and work with state and local leaders to create an environment where business can prosper and create good paying jobs.
Keeping America Safe
Young knows that keeping Americans safe and secure is vital in order to enjoy the freedoms and the prosperity we cherish.
At home, Young knows we must make sure that our first responders have the equipment that they need to deal with new and evolving threats to our security.
Abroad, Young believes that America should be a leader in the world by standing up for the values that have made our country great and given so many hope. We should work to build consensus in the international community to improve our world while showing resolve in the face of rogue nations and terrorism.
Honoring Our Veterans
Young believes that we owe a great debt to those who have served in our nation’s armed services. She will fight to make sure that veterans receive the quality care that they were promised by working to reform the VA and increase accessibility in Southern California.
As a proud immigrant, Young wants people from around the world to be able to legally immigrate to our country, become citizens, and achieve the American dream. However, our immigration system is broken and must be fixed. Young will work with anyone who is willing to reform our immigration system, increase border security, and make sure that those brought to this country as children without legal documentation are treated fairly and with compassion.
Empowering Teachers and Investing In Our Schools
Top-down, one-size-fits-all policies from Washington don’t work in our local schools. Young believes that our parents and teachers know best how local students learn and succeed. She will fight for increased STEM education funding and to make sure education dollars go to teachers and classrooms not bureaucrats in Sacramento or Washington, D.C.
Making Healthcare & Prescription Drugs Affordable & Accessible
The path to affordable, available, and accessible healthcare starts with a free and open market. It’s basic economics – when there is a competitive marketplace, costs are driven down. Extreme healthcare proposals that advocate for the government takeover of healthcare – like single-payer healthcare- would eliminate private insurance and drastically increase taxes while failing to improve the quality and affordability of critical health services. Young believes in market-based solutions that give Americans the care they deserve while driving down the unacceptable costs of prescription drugs.
Addressing the Homeless Crisis
As homelessness continues to rise in California, we need to build a strategic and compassionate approach to solving this crisis. From local services that provide mental health services to job recruitment support, Young understands what it takes to begin to combat the growing homelessness in our state.
