Providing public safety is government’s first responsibility. Whether defending against the threat of international terrorism, preparing for natural disasters, or cracking down on violent crime, Nita is determined to keep our communities safe and secure.
As a former PTA President, a mother of three, and a grandmother of eight, Nita knows that improving educational opportunities for all Americans and giving them a chance to succeed will ensure that our nation has the most talented and educated workforce. That means focusing on early childhood education programs like Head Start, investing in math and science education, and improving access to college and skills training that prepare our children to compete in the global economy.
The United States plays an indispensable role in the world. Nita believes that American global leadership can strengthen the forces of democracy, improve international security, and raise living standards.
While the Great Recession may be over and the economy is slowly recovering, millions of Americans are still struggling to make ends meet. Nita supports a comprehensive, fiscally responsible strategy for job creation and economic growth. We must end wasteful spending while making critical investments in education, research, and infrastructure to grow our economy. She has stood against irresponsible legislation that would wipe out millions of jobs and stall the national recovery.
Quality, affordable health care is a critical priority for all Americans, just as cutting healthcare costs is essential for businesses, taxpayers, and our nation’s long-term fiscal health. Nita backed landmark reforms that ended insurance company abuses, helped millions of previously uninsured Americans obtain health coverage, and brought the rate of healthcare cost inflation to its lowest level in decades. We must keep these reforms and make improvements to help New York families, such as expanding tax credits to help high cost of living areas like the Lower Hudson Valley.
Energy independence and environmental sustainability go hand in hand. Nita strongly supports clean energy investments that can spur American industry, address global climate change and reduce our reliance on imported oil.
