  • Running for U.S. House, Michigan, District 6, Paul Clements understands that our economy must work in a way that benefits all Americans.  It doesn't have to benefit poor and working class Americans at the expense of the wealthy, but it can no longer afford to benefit wealthy Americans at the expense of the poor and middle class.   As Professor of Political Science at Western Michigan University, Paul teaches national economic and social development strategies dealing with ways government can best promote economic growth and create fair and effective programs.

    Jobs, Living Wage and Better Pay:

    In southwest Michigan and across America people are working longer hours for less pay than at the end of the 20th century. This is not right. We have the strongest entrepreneurial spirit in the world, but to release its power we need to fix the things that are holding us back: a health care system that costs twice as much but delivers worse health outcomes than those in other countries; education that is failing to prepare many Americans for the 21st century; laws that reward moving American assets overseas; crumbling infrastructure; and the the largest prison population in the world – which is incredibly costly and keeps many people from being contributing members of the community. Tax cuts will not bring more jobs and better pay to southwest Michigan, but fixing our health, education, infrastructure, and criminal justice systems will. More

    A Fairer Country:

    Our economy and our government have worked for the wealthy and for big corporations, but they have failed working people. The stock market has doubled in value in the last two decades while the average wage has fallen. Congress responds to the preferences of the wealthy and of large corporations, but not to average voters. This is not the government of, by and for the people. This is not real democracy. America works best when it works for all Americans. There is much to be done. More

    America the Beautiful:

    Global warming and climate change threaten human civilization. We need American leadership now to keep global warming below 2° Celsius, the target from the Paris Climate Agreement, and to help communities around the world to adapt to the effects of climate change and to care for its victims. There are also great economic opportunities from climate change, for southwest Michigan and for America, particularly in worldwide transitions to renewable energy. In Congress, I will work for American leadership in international organizations that address challenges from climate change. I will promote a rapid transition to energy that does not produce carbon pollution, to increased energy efficiency, and for American leadership in the clean energy global economy. More
