"The people who say this haven't apparently been listening to me....

You're not going to agree with me on 100 percent of what I think, but don't assume that if I don't agree with you on something that it must be because I'm doing that politically. I may just disagree with you....

I am somebody who is no doubt progressive. I believe in a tax code that we need to make more fair. I believe in universal health care. I believe in making college affordable. I believe in paying our teachers more money. I believe in early childhood education.I believe in a whole lot of things that make me progressive and squarely in the Democratic camp....

I'm not just somebody who is talking about government as the solution to everything. I also believe in personal responsibility. I also believe in faith."
