Deferred Action of Child Arrivals (DACA)
The idea behind DACA is a worthy goal. However, it was done in an unconstitutional manner. Former President Obama had acknowledged that many times, stating that he did not have the power to enact DACA unilaterally. But then he did it. Well-intentioned policies enacted illegally create dangerous precedents.
We are a nation of laws, and must follow the Constitution.
It is my goal when I get to Washington to fight for legislation that allows these young people who came here as children, through no fault of their own, and who have worked hard and stayed on a straight and narrow path, to stay in this great melting pot of a country. I believe this can serve the best interests of this country.
These young people need an advocate in the Republican caucus. I will be that advocate.
End Destruction of Economic Freedom
Big government leads to the destruction of economic freedom. We must reduce government intrusion into our lives, while demanding that it functions with great efficiency, minimal waste, and answerable to the people it represents. It must protect our Constitutional and God-given rights, and provide equal justice for all.
Proper Use of Your Tax Money
The purpose of taxes is to fund the government, to deliver clearly defined services to the people, and to defend this great nation. The Democrats want to use the taxing power to punish success, to redistribute income to their perceived constituents, and to remake society in ways that will make Democrats a permanent majority.
No Government Mandates Between Doctors and Patients
We must repeal the disastrous and misguided Obamacare law, and remove the government mandates affecting doctors, hospitals, all medical providers and, most importantly, the individuals forced to pay for them. The law has dramatically raised the cost of premiums while deductibles skyrocketed, it has limited our options when it comes to choosing a doctor and a health care plan, and it has been a job killer.
Preserve Entry Level Jobs
The Democrats want to destroy entry level jobs by pricing them beyond the economic value by imposing a minimum wage of $15 per hour closing many job opportunities to young people.
