Expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare.
No Oklahoman should be without access to the healthcare they need, and accessing healthcare shouldn’t break the bank. It’s past time we address the source of this problem. As a small business owner, Jason knows how much it costs to self-insure. He knows families are breaking the bank on healthcare expenses, whether they have health insurance or not. And as someone who grew up in rural Oklahoma, Jason has seen first-hand the negative impacts of the closures of our rural hospitals and clinics.
In the US Senate, Jason will work to break up the monopoly on the health insurance market in Oklahoma, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, reduce the cost of critical care, and expand access to healthcare in Oklahoma’s rural areas.
Government BY the people, working FOR the people.
It is no secret that our government is broken. Washington is full of partisan bureaucrats who waste our money, cater to their own interests and the interests of their big donors, and ignore the needs of their constituents. Many members of Oklahoma’s federal delegation are no better.
Jason is not a perennial politician but is a true Oklahoman committed to focusing on the needs of ALL Oklahomans in the US Senate. It’s time Oklahomans’ voices are restored in the Senate, and Jason will speak up for us.
Building a 21st Century infrastructure.
In the wealthiest country in the world and in the great state of Oklahoma, we should not be driving on roads littered with potholes and dangerous bridges, worrying about our property flooding, and be unable to access high-speed Internet in our rural areas. Oklahomans pay taxes to ensure these critical needs are met, and we have seen little return on our investment in years. While Congress is slowly taking steps to focus on infrastructure, Oklahoma’s Congressional delegation doesn’t appear to find it a priority.
Jason grew up the son of a city manager in rural Oklahoma, so he has seen these problems up close all his life. Jason knows first-hand how our government’s failure to take care of our infrastructure and continue to make necessary improvements affects our lives and our pocketbooks, and he is committed to making our critical infrastructure a priority in the US Senate.
Investing in our future by supporting our schools and educators.
Jason believes there is no better investment we can make in our future than ensuring our schools are funded and our children and educators have the resources they need. As the son of a career Oklahoma public school teacher, Jason knows first-hand how constrained Oklahoma’s teachers are for resources, and how not all school districts are equal when it comes to funding.
Jason has seen how the federal government continues to push harsh mandates on our schools. An Oklahoma teacher recently told Jason that “education in Oklahoma is under assault.” As one of our most vital public services, we must make education a priority and give our students, parents and educators the resources and control they need to properly educate Oklahoma’s next generation.
Securing our nation without abandoning our values.
Our country must have secure borders and a robust national security strategy. At the US State Department, Jason came face-to-face in a legal dispute with one of our nation’s most dangerous adversaries, so he knows the risks that lurk outside our borders. But the United States is a land of opportunity for all, and we are enriched by the diverse cultures, ethnicities, races, and points of view that exist here. We need comprehensive reform of our immigration system that provides for legal and humane processes to access this great land.
We need to ensure our elections are secure and free from foreign interference. We need proper oversight of our national security systems and officials—both at home and abroad. We need to ensure those we have tasked with protecting us are properly trained to address modern threats. All of this is doable, and Jason has the skills to produce these results for Oklahomans and the American people.
