Theresa on the Issues

Health Care

Health care is a right, not a privilege — but sadly, for too many Iowans, health care is too expensive and not accessible. No Iowan should lose their health care coverage because of a pre-existing health condition, and we should be working to expand access and make health care more affordable across the state and […]

Economy & Jobs

After years of politicians from both parties allowing giant corporations and special interests to influence Washington and tilt the playing field against hardworking families, we must send leaders to the U.S. Senate who will stand up for those they were elected to represent.  Unions built the middle class, and we should be working to strengthen […]

Education

Theresa is a proud product of public schools and spent time working as a college student to advance her education. When we invest in our kids, our teachers, and our public schools, we all do better.

Public Safety

From the gun violence crisis to the opioid epidemic, politicians have failed us. We can’t wait any longer to take action — when we say “enough is enough,” we mean it.

Military & Veterans

Theresa is a proud military mom, and comes from a family with a history of service to our country and fighting for our freedom, including six of her uncles. Her youngest son just re-enlisted in the Army for another six years of service. She’s seen the sacrifices those called to serve and their families make […]

Retirement Security

While politicians in Washington are talking about cutting Medicare and Social Security to pay for tax breaks for billionaires and special interests, Theresa believes that Social Security and Medicare are promises we must keep to our seniors. She opposes the privatization of both programs as they are crucial to the livelihoods of countless Iowans. Theresa […]

Reproductive Rights

Theresa believes in women’s constitutional right to make their own health care decisions, and she understands that we cannot take these freedoms for granted.  For decades, politicians in Washington and in states across the country have attacked women’s health care rights with the goal of shutting down Planned Parenthood and pushing rigid, uncompromising restrictions that […]

Environment

Climate change is getting worse. We’ve seen it in extensive floods that destroy our fields and wash away parts of our cities.  We can’t afford to have Senators who question and deny the science, who refuse to act when the future of our kids and grandkids are on the line, and who consistently put the […]

Immigration Reform

Our immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed.  Unfortunately, politicians in Washington have focused on stoking fears and dividing us instead of focusing on improving our borders, protecting our national security, or putting forward real solutions to fix our broken immigration system. Theresa is committed to working with both parties on a plan […]

In the Senate, Theresa would proudly support legislation […]

Political Corruption

Politicians in Washington have created a corrupt system – relying on big money from corporate special interests and then making sure that government works for them – not us. So it’s no surprise that Washington passed “tax reform” that was a massive giveaway to huge corporations while saddling us with higher debt, and refuses to […]
