Below you will find "issue videos" and links to information for many of the important issues facing our nation. Please share these videos / positions, with friends, family, and coworkers. A truly "grass roots" movement comes from people, not candidates. Thanks!
The "Nobody Rides Alone" Initiative:
A strategy to restore the bond between the people and law enforcement
Gun Control: A Comprehensive and Reasonable Policy Proposal
Single Payer Healthcare
The United States will have a single payer health care system. The rising cost of health care in this country, combined with the growing chasm of wealth inequality in this nation, will lead to a unanimous public outcry for health care for all. Our govt. needs to embrace the inevitability of this in order to prepare for it, and then implement it in a way that honors health care as a right, and not as a privilege.
Women's Rights: Reproductive Rights, Gender Pay Inequality, and the Culture of "Fear"
Losing Net Neutrality will raise the cost of Internet service and will allow your cable / phone / Tcomm company to control what you can and cannot do online. Not only is this a fraud being perpetrated on the consumers, but it is a crime against democracy. Information in the "Information age" is a public good meant for all. President Trump and the F.C.C. are wrong!
Unions are the first and last line of defense, for the middle class and working class families all over Ohio, and the country. Unions are the reason why people make fair wages, and the percentage of union workers in America, is directly proportionate to the health and stability of the middle class. Wages, safety regulations, and a workable schedule are just a few of the things that union work provides. If elected, I will create, and support legislation meant to ensure the long term health of the American union, and the rights of all American workers.
The jobs of the future are here today! We can create hundreds of thousands of jobs by embracing green energy technology, and provide lasting careers for our children and their children. With American ingenuity and resources, we can lead the global economy in this industry. It's about environmentalism and capitalism!
Undocumented immigrants in the United States, need compassion, NOT contradiction. If it says "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free" on the door, then that's exactly what it should mean. Border security is important and it needs to be strengthened, but I'm not about to turn my back on the Statue of Liberty.
The Trump / GOP led tax overhaul is a giant giveaway to corporations who have done nothing but outsource our jobs overseas, while at the same time hide their profits from the IRS with things like "transfer pricing" and "inversion". And since these massive tax cuts for the wealthy and corrupt will explode our deficit, congress will act to steal more from social security, while cutting necessary government programs like Medicare, Medicaid, etc. But even though this is a painful time, we can't stop fighting! Legislation can be undone, and wrongs can be righted. Never stop telling the truth about what this tax overhaul really is.
My Voter Registration
I voted for Hillary Clinton in the general election of 2016, but in the primary, I crossed the party lines in order to fight for organized labor, and public education. Things did not turned out the way I'd anticipated, but if this means anything about who I am as a person, it means that I am willing to risk a great deal, for the things I believe in.
Who is Rob?
Hi, my name is Rob Jarvis and I'm the high school government teacher from Southeastern Ohio, that's running for congress. In times like these it's important to have people in Washington who can remind this nation of what it's like to work together for the good of all. That's the kind of person I am, and that's just what I'm going to do. Thank you!
