A Fighting Program to Restore America

Wall Street caused the ongoing economic depression with reckless financial speculation. We must rebuild federal and state budgets, reduce the deficit, and shift finance back toward productive capital investment. Wall Street must pay its fair share with a 1% sales tax on stocks, bonds and derivatives. Read More ›
The American Society of Civil Engineers estimates that America needs to invest $3.6 trillion in our roads, bridges and other public infrastructure over the next 10 years to achieve its "C" grade. We need to think bigger. I will demand to use the credit-creating power of the Federal Reserve to issue long-term, interest-free credit for both ongoing repairs and major new infrastructure projects.

What happened to "Made in America"? The winning traditions of a tariff to protect industry from low-wage countries and a Parity price to protect farms from the Wall Street grain cartel were undone by Wall Street predators. Let's restore economic protections for the real "Job Creators" and rebuild an economy that can sustain generations of Americans to come. Read More ›
I agree with my Republican opponents that Obamacare is bad for America. But I disagree that we should return to a free market system that let countless Americans die for Wall Street's profits. I will fight to make Medicare available to all Americans. Read More ›
I will co-sponsor and fight to expand Sen. Elizabeth Warren's "Bank On Students Loan Fairness Act," a bill that will force the Federal Reserve to refinance federal student loans at 0.75%. I will also fight for policies of economic growth that will rebuild State budgets and lighten the burden of tuition on students and their parents. Read More ›

  • Abraham Lincoln famously warned that “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

    The once-proud Republican and Democratic parties have divided the American people against each other. The loyalty of our politicians to Wall Street, the war machine and the super-rich knows no bounds.

    There is another way – I ask you to stand with me and fight for it.


As President Obama prepares a statement on foreign policy for this Wednesday, September 10, 2014, we in Nebraska are looking forward to another Senate debate this weekend. These two public moments should be seen as opportunities for all of us to look clearly at the dangers that face our state and our country. War danger – especially the real threat of nuclear war – continues to be a threat to America as it has for decades. But there is in fact more danger now because of Ukraine, one of the few places in the world where two nuclear-armed forces can clash directly within a few hours. In addition, ISIS religious extremists - backed by Saudi, Qatar, and other gulf monarchies in the Middle East - plague the world. Both of these dangers demand a person of good judgment with a steady hand in the U.S. Senate.
