Charlie In Congress
My name is Charlie Kim,
and I'm asking you for the chance to be your Representative in IL-14.
As Your Representative, I will serve you by advocating for the enactment of laws that directly impact your lives and give you opportunities and empowerment for a better life.
I am committed to listening to you and answering the important issues that matter most to you and your family.
I will be unsatisfied with confusing answers; where people cannot get a straight answer to their questions. I will provide answers to your questions with the purpose of providing a stronger sense of community and contributing to the betterment of our country.
My mission is to get results that protect and preserve democracy for the people, giving you these fundamental human rights and opportunity of prosperity.
My vision for us includes listening to the people and doing my responsibilities for the people, protecting traditional rights of liberty and opportunity for the American Dream, defend our U.S. Constitutional rights (responsible regulations for better reform of violence, discrimination, and criminal justice), less government interference for prosperity of businesses, governmental support of technology and export trade for global competitiveness, non-prejudice and non-gender biasness for worker’s fair and equal pay, reasonable taxes to reduce inflation costs, responsible governmental spending to stop wasting money of taxpayers, best health care for everybody, reproductive rights for life and prenatal care, strengthen schools and empower students, support community protectors and life-savers (First Responders), strong military defense and military veteran support, improve U.S. Citizenship and immigration rights, social responsibility of safer communities and healthier environments, and equal opportunity for every individual for which she or he stands as an American, regardless of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
My purpose and duty are to honor your trust in me as I serve in the U.S. Congress. I will take decisive action to do what is best for our District 14, the State of Illinois, and the United States of America; I will do the work to make America better, stronger, and more prosperous for all of us.
Worker's Wages and Business Development
Hard-working families and devote employees deserve better incomes and more benefits while also allowing employers to manage and prosper.
The solution is better regulations to expand and strengthen workers’ rights with less government interference while also allowing business development and more profits.
Mom-and-pop small businesses and non-profit organizations need more direct financial support, and larger companies need indirect tax savings and direct incentives to work with smaller businesses and self-employment entities, thereby, mutually benefiting from one another to be productive and prosperous with the support of our government.
Reimagining Public Safety and Defending the U.S. Constitution
We need a better answer to improve our questionable criminal justice system, which should prioritize rehabilitation over incarceration, considering that this problem is not only local but national.
The solution is to cease the cycle of recidivism and help people to become valuable contributors to their communities through sensible government policies and supportive community programs to give opportunities for reformed individuals. Government must make wiser decisions by creation of enforceable laws, implementation of effective regulations, and establishment of well-managed community crime prevention and criminal reform support programs to prevent crimes instead of making excuses for increasing crimes and spending more money for repeat criminal offenders.
Many politicians have distorted the purpose of the U.S. Constitution and created problems for citizens and law enforcement agencies. We must enact realistic improvements in gun safety to have common sense gun reform that supports businesses and law enforcement to cooperate and protect our schools and neighborhoods, not making excuses for the responsibilities of manufacturers and law enforcement agents in which separate ideologies divide us to fight for different goals instead of supporting the unity for safety of our community and protecting citizens.
No Cost Best Quality Health Care and Affordable Medication and Treatment for Everyone
Healthcare is a human right and every American deserves quality healthcare without having to worry about the cost.
Too many working families, military families, and Americans seeking a better life are forced to sacrifice healthcare insurance because of necessary medications and treatments in order to pay for credit card debts, apartment rents, home mortgages, child care items, utilities, foods and more needed things, which is harmful to our health and deleterious to our quality of life. It is imperative that our government implement a better healthcare system than the current Affordable Health Care Act, which is an unaffordable and unpractical healthcare system for our citizens and county.
The solution is to establish a comprehensive healthcare system with patients, providers, and insurance companies in industries of medical, pharmaceutical, insurance, and other stakeholders to develop an effective and efficient affordable healthcare system to assist in fully paid health care services for Americans as well as promote profits for businesses. Our government must structure and simplify the current healthcare system to ensure that every family, military veteran, and person has enough coverage for essential medical appointments, medications, therapies, and treatments – including vision, hearing, and dental care, which is still an incomplete health care service with the requirement of expensive patient's co-pay plan.
By embracing my proposal, we can promote the well-being and prosperity of our nation and develop a realistic budget to pay for the best possible health care for all of us.
Supporting Immigrants and U.S. Citizens by Not Wasting Money of Taxpayers
Our country is the land of opportunity, yet we are challenged more than ever to hold onto the American Dream. Our government must create a better plan for immigrants and U.S. citizens, because of mistakes in budget and unwise migration policies that are limiting opportunities for us. The American Dream is possible because of U.S. citizens and the contribution of immigrants, who have earned U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. However, this process is problematic today and we must act to preserve it before it is lost.
The solution is to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), non-U.S. citizens by legal entry, and other immigration programs that help immigrants become U.S. citizens and protect them from deportation to preserve their unity of families and friends in the U.S.A.
In Congress, I shall create and/or support legislation that will provide government social regulation of sponsorship to permit them the opportunity to achieve U.S. citizenship and the American Dream, ensuring that relatives of families are not separated and not costing taxpayers for immigrants.
We must be promoting our diversity as “one nation” to give the best opportunity for Americans in global competitiveness to have a positive tomorrow.
Protecting Schools and Empowering Students
Our government must listen to teachers and administrators to empower students to learn and develop their full potential in a safe and supportive environment.
The answer is to provide necessary resources to protect the safety of schools and support teachers and administrators with advanced learning tools. By doing these essential acts, parents could entrust teachers with their precious children for the best possible education and preparation to be successful and happy in their lives.
In Congress, I shall provide the necessary support for teachers and facilitates so that the betterment of administrators' skills can empower teachers and students to be the best instructors and scholars in order to be well-developed persons for challenges beyond classrooms.
As your Congress Representative, I will be the best possible supporter of schools and students because of experiences as a student and a teacher, learning from failures, and enduring the injustice of discrimination, which allowed me to excel as a student, a teacher, and a productive citizen in our community and country.
The truth is that I have the KISS smart and sincere actions with detailed answers that could solve these problems in our congressional district, which are not fully explained in here, yet particular politicians do not listen nor take action.
These particular politicians are playing with us by saying that these problems are complex and difficult to solve so they need more time while we, the people, continue to sacrifice and suffer.
I am determined to make a difference by common-sense acts in creating new legislation and improving laws, devoting all my effort to our cause as your representative in Congress.
The answers to these issues require the KISS smart and sincere acts that I shall do for the people, because I am elected by the people!
