ON THE ISSUES
Restore Military Readiness
As a Marine combat veteran and lifelong student of history, I personally know what it means to train, deploy, and confront our nation’s adversaries. I have shared the burden of standing the watch with our fellow service members.
Champion Tax Reform and Tax Cuts
According to the Washington Examiner (April 16, 2016), there were 74,608 pages in the US Tax Code. Using a standard font, the average bible has around 1,200 pages. Do bureaucrats honestly believe that what they have to say and proscribe is greater than what God Himself has to say?
Protect The 1st Amendment
The most recent attacks on our religious liberty, our history, and our founding fathers is a coordinated assault on our 1st Amendment rights. These basic Constitutional rights of freedom of speech, religion, press, peaceful assembly, and the freedom to petition the government are the foundational bedrock of our American culture.
Secure Veterans' Benefits
In 2005, my concerned colleagues and I co-founded the Wounded Heroes Foundation, which is an all-volunteer service organization to assist military members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. I have witnessed firsthand the shortcomings of care and services provided by the military and the Veterans Administration to our returning service members.
PASS A BUDGET
If your representative is telling you they have submitted a budget that balances in 10 years, they are being dishonest.
Promote Life and Traditional Family Values
I am unapologetically pro-life and intend to continue the fight to end abortion and support the traditional family by restoring marriage benefits in the US.
Enforce Immigration Laws
A nation without borders is not a nation. A nation that fails to protect the security of its citizens puts everyone at risk. I will support legislation to maintain and increase efforts to enhance border security and fully enforce our standing immigration laws.
Repeal and Replace Obamacare
Obamacare needs to be repealed in its entirety so that we can return to a more market driven healthcare system, encourage personal ownership, modernize the Medicare program, restore Medicaid to a true safety net, and accommodate people with pre-existing conditions.
Protect 2nd Amendment Rights
Citizens have the right to defend themselves, their families, and their property. The 2nd Amendment guarantee is a right that is fundamental to a free society, which in turn ultimately depends on personal responsibility.
