  • "Women deserve the right to make their own decisions about their lives, bodies, and futures." (twitter.com)
  • "Fix Our Taxes by Creating Permanent Tax Cuts for Middle Class Families Instead of Corporations." (andykimforcongress.com)

  • "Among the very first bills I will seek to introduce in Congress will be to reform the negative influences of money in our politics.  We need to fight against dark money that allows millions of dollars to pour into our elections without requiring disclosures of donors.  We need to find more ways to allow to encourage public financing and other tools so Americans don’t need to be millionaires in order to run.  We also want to explore the use of matching contributions and other steps to empower grassroots supporters and ensure they have a voice." (andykimforcongress.com)
  • "We can rebuild America and create a new generation of jobs if we make the right investments.  Our economy won’t succeed without the right infrastructure. Roads, bridges, tunnels, power grids, and ports across New Jersey and the country are crumbling and need to be rebuilt and maintained in a smart way. We must also invest in our technology infrastructure to make sure that every community has affordable access to the high speed internet connection that is vital to growing local economies."

  • "Universal background checks, closing the gun show and private/online sale loopholes, and other critical actions are left undone, while dangerous legislation like the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill are continued to be supported by the likes of Tom MacArthur. Today I recommit to doing everything I can in Congress to keep our children and communities safe." (www.facebook.com)
  • "Having millions of people without health insurance raises the costs for all of us.  We need to ensure everyone, rich or poor, has access to quality affordable healthcare.  This is our new moonshot, and we can save countless lives in the process." (andykimforcongress.com)
