Statement: My name is
Tamborine. I am a candidate whose campaign is funded and supported by real
people, not corporations. If I am elected, the days of big banks, insurance
companies and weapons manufacturers buying our elections will be
I know I am
not alone when I say something is wrong: 50% of Congress are millionaires while
only 1% of Americans are. Our veterans are freezing to death on the streets and
more than half our children are living in poverty. Healthcare costs leave
millions uncovered, being a home owner is beyond the reach of many, and
students struggle to repay their loans with stagnant wages. Meanwhile,
corporations receive billions in tax cuts and subsidies while they lobby our
Congress to represent (their) interests.
It's time to
demand a higher standard of government; Americans need fairer taxes and living
wage jobs. Sending regular people to Congress makes a difference; our voices
have been ignored for far too long. We must elect public servants who are
beholden only to the people who elect them.
My vision is
simple: proactive solutions to serious problems. We can bridge the gap of our
differences to create a better quality of life and liberty for all people. We
all have experienced the disappointment of politicians saying one thing and
doing another. I have signed the Contract for American Renewal (CFAR), which
says if I don't sponsor or co-sponsor legislation on any of the issues I campaigned
on within the first 180 days of office, I will resign on day 181.
We must invest in our country here at home. We will train millions of
skilled workers, building the transportation and energy infrastructure of the
future, while guaranteeing every American a job. We owe this to future
generations and I'm committed to making it so.
