All Hoosier.

No Bullshit.

We need a change in Washington. We need Tom McDermott.

“We all know Washington, D.C. is broken. So what do we do about it? We make a change. As Mayor, I have spent 18 years getting things done for the residents of Hammond. Send me to the U.S. Senate and I’ll fight for you — not special interests.”

Reproductive Rights

I have friends and neighbors who disagree on this issue, but to me it’s just simple: God gives no one a right to control another person’s body. I’m tired of men telling women what they can do with their own body. Women should have a right to choose, especially when their own lives are on the line. By overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court has put thousands of women’s lives at risk of dying or other harm. That’s why I will vote to codify Roe v. Wade as the law of the land.

We also must protect resources that go to women’s health in other areas through Planned Parenthood and in the U.S. Senate I will do that.

Health Care

One out of every five dollars in our economy is tied to the $4 trillion American health care industry. We’ve made tremendous progress in recent years in covering more American with health insurance, though we’ve got more work to do, especially on the rising costs of health care. We need to get soaring costs under control for Hoosier families, and in the U.S. Senate, I’ll work to do just that. It is not right that in the greatest country in the world one unexpected trip to the emergency room, or medical diagnosis can leave a family financially devastated for the rest of their lives.

Our Veterans

Politicians like to talk a lot about veterans, but action to reform veterans’ services in this country has been embarrassingly slow. As a Navy veteran who spent six years in service, including the Persian Gulf War, I can tell you first hand we’ve got a lot of work to do to ensure our veterans get the care and services they deserve. We need to work to reduce homelessness among veterans, provide better health care and connect veterans to job and educational opportunities. We also should provide better services at the VA, and that bad employees at the VA who mistreat veterans are held accountable.

Small Business

As mayor, I worked to increase the number of small businesses in Hammond while reducing burdens that hamper growth. We worked to create opportunities for entrepreneurs to thrive and create jobs. In the US Senate, I’ll work to ensure that small businesses and the creative economy have the tools they need to succeed. This includes access to capital and eliminating regulations that impede growth and prosperity.
