Every American should have access to the tools they need to achieve their American dream.

In Congress, Mimi is working with her colleagues to create opportunities so that every American who is able to work will work. Jobs provide people with the means to succeed in all aspects of life, which will break the cycle of poverty.

Mimi believes the programs established to help Americans get out of poverty should be held accountable, and taxpayers should only support programs that produce results.
