prevention efforts and treatment for the opioid and drug epidemic which has resulted in skyrocketing deaths in rural communities. We support ending the over-prescription of opioids, and providing law enforcement with tools to crack down on manufacturers and prescribers who put profits ahead of human lives and community stability.
Democrats support the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, while also supporting common sense legislation to assist law enforcement in keeping our communities safe while ensuring that the rights of law abiding, responsible citizens are not curtailed.
Democrats know that our responsibility to veterans is sacred. We support overhauling the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to ensure that our veterans’ access to health care is timely, efficient and effective. We support and will always support funding for education and job training for our veterans. We oppose those who seek to betray our veterans by privatizing parts or all of the VA, and instead will push, and continue pushing to ensure that the VA is fully funded to provide the care and resources they have earned.
