Congressional District 11 Opponents

Nisha Sharma - Republican

Nisha Sharma lists 6 priorities on her Campaign website. While she describes some existing problems under each of these priorities, she offers no solutions. As she states, I am sure that she is sincere about wanting to address these problems if elected. However, the people in District 11, deserve to know how she would solve the problems! Otherwise she will just be another robot for the Deep State Corporate Controlled Republican Party. Otherwise, she will just vote as told by Republican Leaders on important issues, not necessarily for what is best for the people of her district.

Cost of Living

Nisha: The Bay Area's cost of living has skyrocketed to become the most expensive in the United States. But Nisha offers no solutions to existing problems.

Michael Kerr Proposed Solutions:

  1. Pass Medicare For All so that the burden of health costs is removed from those most effected with middle and lower incomes.

  2. Make college tuition free and implement a process that significantly lowers or forgives existing student debt. The outrageous debt owned by students has created debt slavery among our young people and the endangers the future of our nation. In meantime, allow students to erase burdensome student debt via bankruptcy if lenders won’t renegotiate away accumulated interest and convert loans with interest free terms. Those who have paid their loans, should receive special tax rebates.

  3. Proposition 13 should have only protected homeowners at their primary residence. Large corporations change ownership every microsecond, so why aren't we taxing them under same rules of homeowners. End their special tax exemption.

  4. Reinstate usury laws. Corporations have been allowed to charge exorbitant interests on credit cards and loans. No more! Tax financial transactions.

  5. The tech Industry has done well in the Bay Area. The Tech Industry and many of its employee’s newfound wealth has in turn led to a massive rise in housing costs across the Bay Area. This has had an extreme negative effect on those not in the tech industry and led to gentrification of long-term neighborhoods. The Government and Tech Industry must be required to create enough affordable housing to meet the needs of the Bay Area community. This is an emergency and needs to be treated as so.

  6. In 2008 President Obama and the Democratic controlled Congress refused to help millions of homeowners keep their homes. Instead they spent $trillions bailing out the Financial Industry which had actually caused the the world’s greatest Recession since 1929. All the Government had to do was provide sufficient interest free aid to keep people in their homes. The Government aid could have been backed via liens on the homes. People would have stayed in their homes; people would have kept their jobs; the economy wouldn’t have totally collapsed. However, wealthy speculators then seized these foreclosed homes dirt cheap and have reaped a fortune in renting them at exuberant rents. This was one of the greatest wealth transfers in history. We need to tax the financial industry along with multiple homeowner individuals and corporations that have benefitted from this wealth transfer. Need policies that will not make it profitable for multi-home ownership releasing homes for sale to individual families. We need to implement a new and better Glass-Stiegel to order to prevent reckless financial speculation by the Financial Industry.

All of these ideas and others should help ease the cost of living in the Bay Area. Lowering housing and other important costs of living must be a priority at all levels of the Government..

Infrastructure

Nisha: While our population grows, our highways and streets continue to crumble,. BART is still using computers and train cars from the 1970s, which has left many of us in some of the worst traffic in the world on a daily basis. But Nisha offers no real solutions to existing problems.

Michael Kerr Proposed Solutions:

The primary purpose of our roads and public transportation is to get employees to work at corporations and businesses across the Bay Area. Corporations use our roads to transfer their products via road destroying trucks.

As part of reducing car traffic, we need to expand low cost public tansit.

Corporations need to pay more of their profits to reinburse the government

Homelessness

Nisha: Parts of California now resemble medieval Europe, with outbreaks of the bubonic plague, leprosy, and arrows being shot into homeless encampments. It's time that the federal government declare a state of emergency to address this humanitarian crisis. It is neither humanitarian nor compassionate to let people live and die on our streets. We must help them get the mental health, drug addiction, housing, and employment help that they so Parts of California now resemble medieval Europe, with outbreaks of the bubonic plague, leprosy, and arrows being shot into homeless encampments.

Immigration

Nisha: I believe that people who want to come to our great country should follow the process and do so legally.

But Nisha offers no solutions to existing problems.

Michael Kerr Proposed Solutions:

  1. Need to create a 9 month Visitor Entry Pass with a token fee (not tied to a specific job or company) to anyone who enters from Mexico.. Must leave for at least 3 months, but no limit on number of returns. Puts coyotee smuglars out of business, because not needed to enter USA. Higher cost of living discourages families from moving to USA permanently. Right now expensive dangerous border crossings actually trap immigrants here in state of poverty and fear. Not good for society. Would need some special provision to prevent pregnant women from coming into USA to make their birth child an automatic USA citizen.

  2. Most people making the dangerous trip from Central America have been forced to leave their own country due to internal oppression and poverty. The USA must accept its responsibities for supporting cruel dictatorships and over throwing democracies who won't do our bidding. USA foriegn aid must be used to improve the living standards and democracy for the people. No more foreign military and police aid to prop up dictators. The National Endowment for Demcracy (NED) needs to be defunded and dismantled. The NED has been used by the USA to overthow or destabilize numerous democracies. Most of the refugees trying to come to the USA are the result of our foreign policy.

The Economy

Nisha: Our nation's economy is thriving, but unfortunately many in California are still struggling to pay their bills on time and have the quality of life they deserve. America's economy is unique in the world in that everyone has the chance to become successful and work whatever profession they choose. In Congress, I will do everything I can to ensure that our economy benefits all Americans.

Michael Kerr Proposed Solutions:

.

Taxes

Nisha: No new taxes. Californians already pay the highest taxes in the United States while also paying the highest cost of living. We cannot continue to sacrifice paying our bills, student loan debt, and putting food on our table just so politicians can mismanage our tax dollars and fund their pet projects.

Mark DeSaulnier

Civil Rights

During his more than 25 years in public service, Mark has fought to ensure that all communities are protected from discrimination and harassment. Whether it is promoting equality based on gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, race, nationality, or any other characteristic, Congressman DeSaulnier values the ideal that we are not equal until everyone is equal, and continuous fighting for this goal in Congress.

Michael Kerr Proposed Solutions:

Mark DeSaulnier lists 14 priorities on his official Congressional website. While he describes some existing problems under most of these priorities, he offers no solutions or specific accomplishments. Most of the time he boasts about his own experience and that, of course, he really cares about the issues.

From my personal knowledge of Mark, I am sure that he is sincere about wanting to address most of the problems in our society. However, Mark's priorities seem to be toward following the lead of Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Corporate Establishment rather than the interests of the people! He has almost completely ignored the crys of the progressive movement on the many important issues of the day. Mark has been totally absent on foreign policy except when approved by Nancy Pelosi. The people in District 11, deserve more! Mark never uses his Congressional bullhorn to speak out for what is best for the people of her district. Mark usually just votes as he is told by Democratic Leaders on important issues. When he doesn't, he does so quietly as to not create any distraction against the Democratic Corporate leadership. Unfortunately, Mark has just become another robot for the Deep State Corporate Controlled Democratic Party.
