Greg Howard wants to go to Congress so he can have a chance to lobby for the American public and to help them have a better life. He wants to put Congress back on the path of serving the public, instead of serving the corporations.
Greg has watched how people have been thrown aside for corporate profit with little concern for their lifestyle and health. He feels that the focus needs to be shifted back to the people starting with bringing jobs back to the United States .
Greg would like to see small businesses supported so they get a foothold again, putting money back into the local economy and people’s pockets instead of lining the coffers of corporations, who in turn are electing officials that support their agendas. Entrepreneurs should be encouraged, offering tax breaks to both small business and entrepreneurs while giving less tax breaks to large corporations.
Greg believes that everyone is entitled to an education that they can use for the rest of their life, not just be pushed through school to help data show that school systems have high rates of graduation.
He also believes that everyone should be entitled to health care as part of their right as a U.S. citizen. The Affordable Care Act is a start, but with working together by both parties, it could be something great for the American public.
Greg and Gerry Howard own a small farm in Meigs County that is certified organic by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA). They believe that everyone deserves to have fresh, nutritious, GMO free food available to feed themselves and their families. Prevention of disease is more important than treating symptoms after disease has invaded one’s life, another reason our health insurance premiums are so astronomical. Insurance companies don’t want you to stay healthy or they would offer more incentives to keep you healthy.
As for his view of Social Security and Medicare, the American people paid for it. It is not an entitlement, it’s a right. The American people put the money in and they, and only they, should be able to take it out.
