As a Republican candidate for Congress, I believe in responsible federal spending. We should prioritize fiscal discipline and reduce wasteful government expenditures. Our focus should be on promoting economic growth, cutting unnecessary regulations, and eliminating deficits. I will work to balance the budget and rein in the national debt to ensure a strong financial future for our nation.
I support a secure and controlled immigration system. We must enforce our existing immigration laws, secure our borders, and reform the legal immigration process to ensure national security. I also advocate for a fair and compassionate approach to addressing the status of undocumented immigrants already in the country, while ensuring that the rule of law is upheld.
We need market-driven healthcare solutions that increase competition and reduce costs. I support patient choice, protecting pre-existing conditions, and ensuring access to quality care for all. A competitive healthcare system can provide affordable options and innovation in treatments.
I am committed to protecting Social Security for current and future generations. We should explore common-sense reforms that strengthen the program’s solvency without reducing benefits for seniors. This includes encouraging personal savings and exploring bipartisan solutions to secure Social Security’s long-term stability.
I believe in low taxes to stimulate economic growth. Lowering tax rates for individuals and businesses can create jobs and increase prosperity for all. A simpler, fairer tax code will help families keep more of their hard-earned money and encourage economic development.
A strong and principled foreign policy is vital. I advocate for a robust national defense, standing by our allies, and maintaining a tough stance against adversaries. We should also promote American values of democracy, freedom, and human rights on the global stage.
I firmly support the Second Amendment and the right of law-abiding citizens to bear arms. I will work to defend and protect this fundamental right, advocating for responsible gun ownership, mental health reform, and ensuring that our citizens can exercise their right to self-defense.
I am pro-life and believe in protecting the sanctity of life. I will support policies and legislation that protect the rights of the unborn while also advocating for women’s health and alternatives to abortion. It is essential to foster a culture that values life and offers support to expectant mothers.
