Williamson backs a Medicare for All model to achieve universal healthcare and she supports a “full path to citizenship” for undocumented immigrants with no criminal record.
In an interview about immigration Williamson said, “we are criminalizing behavior that is not criminal. Seeking asylum is a statutory right. It is not a crime.” If elected President, she also pledged to end the Trump administration’s family separation policy and to provide better treatment for migrants arriving in the United States.
The self-described “straight-line progressive Democrat” has supported a $15 minimum wage, universal healthcare and resolving student debt. She also wants the United States to re-enter the Paris Climate Accord and supports the Green New Deal as part of a long-term goal of transitioning away from fossil fuels.
“[Climate change] is the greatest moral challenge of our lifetimes. I’d rather pay with money now than pay with our inability to breathe 25 years from now or 50 years from now….If you hear that your house is on fire, you don’t get to say I don’t know if we can afford the damage to the house. It’s on fire. And that’s what’s going on here. There’s an urgency and emergency to this issue of climate crisis.”
Williamson Wants to Increase the Minimum Wage, Create a Universal Basic Income and National Savings Program
Williamson supports an increased minimum wage, workers’ right to form unions, paid family and medical leave, equal pay and a universal basic income, which would grant $1,000 a month to American adults. She has also proposed a universal savings program seeded with a cash gift deposited from the federal government into a fund at birth. The federal government would match contributions made by family and friends on a sliding scale, based on a family’s income.
Williamson promises to address racial justice as President, including a $100 billion slavery reparations plan that would be administered through a council appointed to allocate the money to economic and educational projects.
