The Mansfield Yang Gang is the grassroots movement supporting Andrew Yang's 2020 presidential campaign. Our members live in and around Mansfield, TX and come from diverse political backgrounds: liberals, progressives, moderates, libertarians, conservatives, and even some former Trump-voters. In fact, half of has have never been involved in a political campaign until now. We all have a shared vision of creating a future that puts humanity first.
Because our group is so diverse, we have varying opinions on Andrew's 110+ plans and policies. However, we proudly embrace the inclusive nature of our campaign. We are aligned in support of the three pillars of Andrew Yang's platform:
- The Freedom Dividend, which will provide every American citizen above the age of 18 with $1,000 every month to spend on whatever they need. This is independent of one’s work status or any other factor. This would enable all Americans to pay their bills, educate themselves, start businesses, be more creative, stay healthy, relocate for work, spend time with their children, take care of loved ones, and have a real stake in the future.
- Medicare for all, because healthcare should be a basic right for all Americans. Right now, if you get sick you have two things to worry about – how to get better and how to pay for it. Too many Americans are making terrible, impossible choices between paying for healthcare and other needs. We need to provide high-quality healthcare to all Americans and a Medicare for All system is the most efficient way to accomplish that. It will be a massive boost to our economy as people will be able to start businesses and change jobs without fear of losing their health insurance.
- Human-Centered Capitalism, because we need to make the markets serve us rather than the other way around. Profit-seeking companies are organized to maximize their bottom line at every turn which will naturally lead to extreme policies and outcomes. We need government leaders who are truly laser-focused on the public interest above all else and will lead companies to act accordingly.
The mission of the Mansfield Yang Gang is to help Andrew Yang win the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. This means supporting the efforts of the national campaign as well building awareness of Andrew Yang here in North Texas.
With your help, we can make this happen. Join the Yang Gang today!
