100% FOR THE PEOPLE.

I'm running for Congress because it's time for new leadership that puts our working families first. The status quo just isn't enough.

We need to get the money out, and the people in. I'll fight to end corruption and get money out of politics. I reject all corporate cash and lobbyist money. I'll only be loyal to you.

Our nation needs an economic stimulus package, we can create millions of new careers with the Green New Deal. We all deserve to be healthy, for the lowest cost, possible, with Universal Health Care. We need to lower property taxes and invest in our schools from the federal budget to create opportunity for all and affordable housing.

When millions of Americans live pay check to pay check, when lives are on the line from a global pandemic, when we're in a health care crisis, an employment crisis - NOW is the time for a representative that can bring real results for the People. Now is the time to demand the bold change that we need.

Imagine, we can live our best lives, and build it, together. It's time for representation that works, for all of us.

about russ cirincione

Russ dedicated his career to serving the common good as a government attorney. In court, Russ makes sure that no one is above the law. He's also drafted laws that protect seniors living in mobile homes. His experience at the negotiation table, fighting big money and corruption, and working for the people uniquely qualifies him to represent New Jersey's 6th District.

Russ believes it's time for America to prioritize the needs of all People. It's time for justice for all of us - environmental, social, economic, and racial justice. We face crises, but they can be addressed by bold solutions.

It's time to take our government back from the billionaires and to get the big money out of politics. We will create millions of good paying, union jobs, with a Green New Deal. To guarantee health coverage for the lowest cost. To clean up the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the world we live in. To go 100% renewable energy by 2030, to save our homes, our families, and prevent climate catastrophe, with the Green New Deal. And, we need to invest in our schools from the federal level to lower property taxes.

We're bringing the People of New Jersey together for an unprecedented grassroots movement.When we work together, we can create an America that works. For all of us.

MAJOR POLICIES I SUPPORT AND WILL FIGHT FOR:

Expanded and Improved Medicare-for-All

It's time for Universal Health Coverage. Medicare for All is a Tax CUT for all working people. No more premiums, copays, deductibles, and medicine costs are capped at $200 per YEAR.

  • Includes Long Term Care, Dental, Mental, Vision, and Hearing.
  • 10 times more efficient than the current wasteful for-profit sector.
  • Free at the point of service.
  • A fair and just transition for all people who work in the health insurance industry.

Universal Basic Income

The Coronavirus makes it clear that in times of national emergency, we need a UBI.

  • $1,000 per adult over the age of 18.
  • Promotes economic stability.

A Green New Deal

The Green New Deal is an immense economic stimulus package that will create 20 million new jobs and transition our economy to 100% renewable energy. The Green New Deal addresses multiple issues at the same time:

  • The climate crisis
  • Income and racial inequality
  • Rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure
  • High Speed Rails and Free public transit

End Corruption

We need to restore power to the People, by getting the big money out of politics. We need clean and fair elections, to restore public confidence.

  • I pledge to never take corporate PAC money or lobbyist money for my entire career.
  • End Citizens United.
  • Publicly financed elections with Democracy Dollars.
  • And more...

Russ has dedicated his career to fight for housing justice. He's a public interest attorney. In courts, Russ stood toe to toe with big money, and won. Russ drafted a law that protects tenants from predatory lending practices. As a public servant, Russ has committed to serve the common good. He has experience at the negotiation table, fighting big money and corruption, and he has the experience to get to Congress and work for the American People.

Russ believes it's time to get big money out of politics, create thousands of New Jersey jobs, lower New Jersey property taxes, lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs with Medicare for All, clean up the air and water, and go 100% renewable energy by 2030 to save our homes, our families, and prevent climate catastrophe.

It's time that America prioritizes the needs of the People. It's time that we join the rest of the world and have single-payer Medicare for All. It's time for a federal jobs guarantee to do the work our communities need, and it's time to save the planet with the Green New Deal. It's time to end the corruption and create ethical rules for Congress. It's time for justice for all - environmental, social, economic, and racial justice.
