The New Face of Washington Politics
Progressive Democratic Candidate for
US Congress - Florida District 22
Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Parkland, Coral Springs, Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, Wilton Manors and more
What could happen to you during the next economic downturn, job change, family illness or other unplanned life event? Most people aren't prepared for such a drastic change and one thing's for sure, the Government does NOT have your back. Just like all the small biz owners who cannot afford the outrageous rates for health insurance for themselves or their employees, the Government is NOT here for you either! Well Jeff Fandl says it time to change all that. What is the point in having a Federal Government if it isn't there first and foremost for the People? Every year that goes by our Conservative politicians are cutting more and more from the government offering us less and less while giving away handouts to Corporate America and the Ultra rich. This dangerous course must be reversed now!
Jeff Fandl strongly believes that the Federal Government's first responsibility is that People must come first. The Politicians that have been in office have put People way down on the list where People aren't even in the Top 10 anymore. Even many of our elected Democrats have not stood strong enough for the People and this has to change. Jeff Fandl is prepared to lead that change and will work with other change new leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who are likely to shape and influence America for the People! When you elect Jeff Fandl to Congress to represent Florida's 22nd district, you will be electing a candidate with Strong, successful business leadership skills and experience to drive change in Washington and steer a better course for All Floridians. Jeff Fandl is very experienced in the Corporate world who has seen and been through many of the challenges that the working Middle Class feel in America today. Jeff Fandl knows what it feels like to see many coworkers and Executives let go due to a merger or downturn in the economy and he realized that the one common theme is that most of them did not have any kind of safety net to protect them. Jeff has even experienced this first hand and knows the pain and frustration the Middle Class workers face when Corporate America impacts their lives. It's time for change, it's time to "Bring back the Middle Class"! Jeff Fandl will be proposing many new benefits and protections to allow the Middle Class workers to not just survive, but to thrive! We are the backbone of this nation and it's time someone in Washington has our backs for a change!
Why should you vote for me?
My Number One priority is to help the American People first. When you dive deeper into my Agenda, you will see this aligns with everything I propose. People should always come before Politics and Corporate America.
My agenda is focused on Social & Economic issues that affect the People in our Florida communities and around the country. My Top Agenda items will improve the lives of All Americans.
JEFF FANDL is the Champion of the Middle Class
Where the American People come 1st!
Here is a brief summary of my Agenda which you can find more details on the Agenda page:
I think access to affordable Healthcare as one of the most basic responsibilities for our government to provide to all citizens. My bold plan will provide routine Doctor visits and well care at no cost within 18 months and lay the framework for a single payer model in just 4 years. I don't believe that because you start your own business, you're a 1099 contract worker or you become unemployed that you should ever have to worry about having the same access to affordable healthcare. Whether you work for a large corporation or a mom and pop shop, your healthcare should cost the same. Healthcare should be affordable without huge deductibles or excessive costs that force you into financial ruin or bankruptcy. Your job and your health insurance plan will no longer be dependent on one another.
Imagine an environment where everyone who is working gets at least a living wage, not the minimum wage that keeps people in poverty. Every working class American gets 7-10 days of guaranteed sick pay from the Government. What if unemployment assistance actually helped the middle class too? Too many people are just one corporate merger, one bad boss, or one family illness away from losing their job with no safety net to protect them, fortunately my plan protects against these common life events. The middle class contributes the most to our economy yet we do nothing to insure they financially survive a job loss. I envision a job market where every worker, full-time or part-time has a number of sick days available, access to affordable healthcare, a living wage and unemployment protections that help the middle class too, unlike Florida's abysmal $275/week maximum benefit for the unemployed.
When I send my son off to school in the morning, I expect to see him when I come home at night in one piece, not full of bullet holes. When he goes to the movies with his friends, he should not have to dodge bullets flying in a theater or in the mall. I don't want to read on the news that another 18 year old with emotional issues legally bought a high powered rifle without a background check and shot into groups of people killing them, again. We've got a huge gun problem in our country and we need to do a lot more to solve this. Find out more on my Agenda page
When I cast my ballot to elect someone in office to represent me, I want my vote to count but I know that because of gerrymandering, the odds are stacked against me. I see it's too easy for today's politicians to be bought by big corporations thanks in part to Citizens United which takes the voice of the people out of decisions that affect all Floridians. The current political Party uses powerful software to gerrymander districts to their advantage so they can unfairly win elections. I'd like to use that powerful software to generate fair, non-partisan districts to stop the politicians from robbing people of their votes.
