A New Deal for Leflore County

2018 mirrors 1932. Republican economic policies led to and worsened the greatest economic crisis in world history. The impact on the working poor and middle class Americans was devastating. Franklin Roosevelt’s promised and delivered on a New Deal for America.

Our campaign is promising a New Deal for Oklahomans. We will reverse the disastrous policies that have failed our state. 
The New Deal for Oklahomans will not raise but restore the disastrous tax cuts that were given to the wealthiest Oklahomans.  From Luke 12:48. From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required”. 
EDUCATION - We will properly fund education at every level so that the least among us can have access to opportunity.  Great schools attract great businesses and great people.
HEALTHCARE - We will fight for the expansion of Medicaid (90% paid by the federal government) so that small town hospitals not only stay open but can provide the healthcare people in leflore county deserve. This will also save jobs…

How They Have Failed Us

The Social Gospel was an early 20th century movement that sought to make society better through reform efforts inspired by the teachings of Jesus in the sermon on the mount.   We believe that government should be inspired by these teachings.
