Candidate Name: Eric Rothmuller
What office are you running for?
With which party are you running for office?
November 3rd, 2020
Why are you running for office?
I am running to bring another progressive voice to the U.S. Senate and fight for systematic changes that’ll root out corruption and make the system work for everyone, not just corporations and the mega-wealthy.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
One of the biggest issues in Kentucky is health care. To address this, I will fight to have the United States join the rest of the modern world by passing Medicare For All. For decades we have seen that countries with a Universal Single Payer system where procedure and pharmaceutical prices are negotiated produces better health care results and costs less than our system. This is what I’ll fight for.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
There’s definitely ideological overlap between certain groups of both parties. Where people agree on the issues, they should work together to get legislation passed. When they don’t agree, they should debate. This is healthy. I have no problem with bipartisanship as long as you’re not compromising your values for bipartisanship’s sake.
For example: Libertarians and Progressives are both generally against war. They can and should work together on this issue.
