Budgets and Revenues
Though the Korean American, Asian American and immigrantcommunities have grown rapidly in New York, there are stillnot enough resources and services to meet our commu-nity’s needs. Federal and state governments are continuingto cut basic services for our community because there arenot enough revenues. Instead of cutting more services and budgets, we can make sure that everyone pays a fair tax share so that there areenough resources that serve vulnerable persons such as children and youth,women, low-income individuals, seniors, immigrants. Voters need to see if Federal and state candidates will make sure everyone pays a fair share of taxes,and protect critical resources from more budget cuts.
 Affordable Housing
 
Immigrants face a number of housing challenges: overcrowd-ing, high rental costs, poor housing conditions, harassment,and discrimination. Many live without a lease, and pay rentin cash. With the economic slowdown, immigrant hom-eowners have also been hit hard and are at high risk of losingtheir homes by foreclosure. Decent, affordable housing is ahuman right, and immigrant families should be able to find quality, affordableand safe home. Voters need to see what the candidates will do to stop need-less foreclosures; expand affordable rental housing, revive a sustainable path tohomeownership, and improve and preserve existing affordable housing.
Healthcare and Coverage
In New York City, many Asian Americans don’t have healthinsurance, and have limited access to medical services because they don’t have legal status, or have the rightincome, or have language and cultural barriers and lack in-formation. In New York, Governor Cuomo is pushing fora redesign of Medicaid for low-income persons, and thenew health exchange should be set up soon. Voters shouldask what candidates are doing to make sure that affordable, quality healthcare isavailable for all of our community members.
