PRIORITIES OF TODAY
Changing times bring with it a new set of challenges to overcome. As the needs of constituents and the problems facing their communities evolve, so too should the policies aimed at addressing these concerns.
Unfortunately, Congress has failed to keep up. Congressional productivity and approval have dropped considerably over the past twenty years, and the average age of Congress remains high. Even as emerging technologies radically redefine the ways in which Americans live their daily lives, few members of Congress have any experience in such fields. Entrenched incumbents remain in office for decades, exploiting and exacerbating a broken system which rewards inaction and partisanship.
WORK FOR YOU
Solving the uniquely complex problems of the twenty-first century requires rational, evidence-based, and data-driven decisions that are made in the best interest of the American people. An understanding of the multifaceted issues transforming communities in Silicon Valley and beyond is key to crafting sound solutions. New technologies have the potential to make our government more efficient and accountable, and will allow us to better examine and respond to the needs of constituents. The time is now, more than ever, for new leaders to take the stage, prepared to face the challenges of tomorrow head-on.
I am running for Congress because we need legislation for the digital age.
As your representative, I will work tirelessly to promote proactive and pro-business reforms, combat discrimination and hatred, and push for policies that help Americans recover as fast as possible from the devastation of the pandemic. By tapping into the pioneering spirit of innovation which made our district what it is today, I’ll use my experience as a technology entrepreneur to champion evidence-based, solutions-oriented, policies which will finally make Congress work for you.
JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY
Anti-AAPI violence has increased sharply in recent years. We need to ensure that criminals are being prosecuted for hate crimes and that Asian American voices are being heard in government. Learn more about my initiative to increase Asian voter participation at 8by8.us.
THE U.S ECONOMY
American healthcare is fundamentally broken. I advocate for a reimagining of our current system which looks closer to what is currently in place in Switzerland, where consumer-driven competition is the cornerstone of effective healthcare. This would build upon the foundation already established by the Affordable Care Act and make our healthcare system more robust, efficient, and equitable.
Education is absolutely essential to determine the economy, quality of life, success, and health of our nation and our students of today. Without the needed reform to the access and level of education in our country today, we risk failing our future students and losing our place as an international leader.
FOREIGN DERIVED INTANGIBLE INCOME (FDII)
Repealing Foreign Derived Intangible Income (FDII) would threaten America’s ability to stay globally competitive by removing an important incentive for intellectual property to remain in the United States. Enacting an anti-growth policy would weaken our country on the world stage, and as such I stand against repealing FDII.
