Medicare For All

Katie Porter will always protect a woman's right to choose and believes that women's health care and birth control shouldn't be a luxury. She will fight any efforts by Republicans to defund Planned Parenthood, restrict access to birth control, or ban the right to choose.
Common Sense Gun Reform
Katie is proud to be a Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate and does not accept contributions from the NRA. She supports a ban on assault weapons so that dozens don’t die in a matter of minutes, mandatory background checks on all gun sales, and a healthcare system that provides comprehensive mental health treatment.
Reversing the Tax Bill
As a working mother, Katie Porter understands how hard it is to make ends meet in Orange County. She'll fight to overturn the Republican tax plan that slashes Medicare and raises taxes on middle-class families, and instead pass real tax reform that makes wealthy corporations pay their fair share and cuts taxes on the middle class and small businesses.
Katie knows that we need comprehensive immigration reform that provides a fair pathway to citizenship for those who are undocumented.
Katie will take on big oil and the corporate polluters to stop offshore drilling, and will fight to invest in renewable energy development, and support high emission standards and save important environmental protections.
Katie believes that quality public education is the bedrock of the American dream. She supports increasing our investment in education, expanding early childhood education and making college more affordable for our kids.
