"Our economy isn’t working for too many people who work hard but can’t get ahead, and haven’t been able to for many years now. Too many people can’t afford health insurance. The Affordable Care Act needs fixing. The opioid crisis kills more Tennesseans every year than auto accidents. When it comes to finances, Congress has lost its way — it’s immoral the way they keep borrowing money, with no end in sight, and a sad legacy for our children and our grandchildren.
It’s a mess, but it can be fixed. I’m running for the Senate because I have the right kind of experience — and the actual track record — that it will take to start working across party lines to fix the mess in Washington and bring common sense back to our government."
