Tracey DeBruhl (L)

Our Government screwed up the Universal Care that Works in other nations. Because the party politics were only concerned with themselves and out doing one another! There have also been phenomenal results with medicines our Nation's fails to use. Only feeding the Opioid & expensive Big Pharma results. I was a regular volunteer at the nursing home & involved with the VA and have several ways I will be helping! And again, you should ask me about my pending motion that will help the less fortunate! And help our judicial system help all Citizens!

Provide loan reduction for physicians , nurses and physician assistants who commit to serve in needy areas.

Question 4: What will you do to promote more affordable and accessible housing?

Tracey DeBruhl (L)

Build more productive industry & Logistical solutions to benefit our communities. Much of my programs as I said earlier are to benefit the less fortunate! Including pending litigation for the disabled, victims & the less fortunate!

Albert Wiley, Jr. (R)

Work with mortgage agencies/banks to keep home loan interest rates down, lower down payments

Question 5: Would you support the elimination of subminimum wage?

Tracey DeBruhl (L)

The dollar is only as valuable as the Community & Economy around it. i.e. A dollar will hardly buy you a Coke in America, but will transfer into a bunch of Pecos & still buy you many Cokes in Mexico! It's not about the number of dollars, opposed to how far it will get you. And I will do everything in my power to bring the balance! As a Warrior for Human Rights & Equality! Poverty is not a crime! Being injured, disadvantages or disabled gives us strengths or Government needs to understand! And what better way to give US a Voice than by Electing someone who has been held down, beaten, broken, poor & abused? Than to become the Voice for US!

I think this should be a state rather than federal issue.

Question 6: In response to litigation under other states’ laws, some members of Congress have sought to limit the right of people with disabilities to seek the removal of barriers under the ADA. Do you support limiting who can bring a claim for accessibility of public accommodations under the ADA?

No! We are a Nation Founded on "For The People, By the People"! NO ONE IS SUB HUMAN! If one of our Citizens feel the Need to reach out for our help? It is our Government Employees JOBs! To be there for all Citizens! Even if its just being sure they have reached the right department! I doubt many make up claims. Without something driving them to. Our employees should WANT to help anyone find the right help!

NOTE: This answer was shortened by Disability Rights NC staff to meet the word limit.
