Dan is running for office as a common sense Democrat. He believes a senator should be for their constituents, not special interests. Dan's platform allows for a completely transparent, delegate, senator. It’s time we have elected senators that are by the people FOR the people.
The time has arrived for a new Era in Politics!
Would you truly like to be heard and represented by your senator?
Is your input heard when there are 29 lobbyist per U.S. Congressman that spend 24/7 vying to manipulate, cajole, or bribe your congressman to vote how the lobbyist's rich beneficiary desires?
Isn’t it about time we confront the ugly truth that money/campaign contributions buy favors? The Koch brothers spent $400,000,000 in 2018 to help political candidates get elected, in exchange for a $50,000,000,000 tax break. That is a factual example of a single billionaire family influencing our legislative branch. We the people are the lifeblood of this grand democratic experiment that our forefathers envisioned, not a nation of expendable chattel indentured to wealthy campaign contributors. Most of the bills passed are written by lobbyists, not the men and women that we elect whom are supposed to represent us.
At the end of the day, isn’t your senator YOUR employee? And as such, what did your senator do last week? What are they doing this week? Shouldn’t you know... they work for YOU?!
Dan represents his constituents on a per issue basis. Political parties were created to control the flow of government through helping candidates get elected. He understands this and will never submit to party pressure, but only to his constituents. Dan believes a senator should answer to the people, not a political party. He will have a schedule book where constituents can sign up to have a morning coffee, brunch, or meeting, or even sign up to cast some lines in the water and voice their concerns while catching some fish.
“Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. Representing you will be my honor."
We have been "represented" by congressmen that are more concerned with filling their coffers than what is best for Arkansans. 67% of children born in Arkansas are covered by Medicaid, yet our senators are voting to cut Medicaid? It's time for us to stand up and tell the corrupt politicians that enough is ENOUGH! There is no excuse for Arkansas to be the 49th lowest income state in America, while paying the 3rd highest taxes! Politicians must stop cutting the social programs we depend on in exchange for large sums of money!
Americans have suffered many injustices over the last several decades.
We know it is possible to Build Back Better, but in order to do so we will need representatives with political courage. Dan has that political courage and will fight until his last breathe to end these problems in order to make the lives of the working class and poor better. With your help, we can all Build Back Better and Rebuild With Whitfield!
