Obamacare was built on lies, and its aftermath is a big mess. It did not reduce healthcare costs as promised, nor did it reduce insurance costs. But taxes went up, spending went up, and the healthcare crisis still remains. Republicans said if we give them the House majority in 2010, they would fix it. Later they said “give us the Senate”, so we did, and still nothing. Then they said “give us the White House”, which we did. Then one by one, Republican congressmen went back on their word and fought to keep Obamacare in place. We cannot believe their lies anymore! This failed and corrupt establishment is now wholly to blame for the healthcare crisis. Congress needs to provide the tools that will allow the marketplace to drive the prices down which will allow for the doctor patient relationship to once again exist for everybody and restore freedom in selecting one’s healthcare and healthcare professionals.
A nation without borders is not a nation at all. A nation where people can choose whether or not to follow the laws is not a nation at all. Mexico has strict borders. So does Canada. China, Russia, India and most countries of the world have strict immigration policies. The United States is the best country in the world because of our culture of mixing in immigrants to our melting pot slowly, over time, with reasonable limits. Our country wants immigrants who are an asset to our country and who desire to take part in the American dream and to obey and respect our laws. No amnesty. Build the wall. Protect the borders. Put Americans first.
Belongs to the states!
The states neither need nor want the federal government telling them how to educate their children. Common Core belongs on the trash heap of history – it was untried when Obama forced states to accept it and has become more indoctrination than education. Public school students deserve to be taught HOW to think, not what to think, and the local communities with state oversight are in the best position to decide what and how to teach. Additionally, school choice is absolutely necessary in a free country. Parents must have the right to choose the best education for their children – public, private, charter, online or homeschool.
Life is a precious gift from God, and deserves to be protected from the moment of conception. Protecting the God-given right to life of every American will be a top priority as your congresswoman. I am so happy that President Trump has demonstrated a commitment to life by appointing pro-life judges and signing pro-life laws and executive orders. I want to help him continue building a culture of “respecting life” by supporting the heartbeat bill and ending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.
So Congress managed to pass a bill that mostly reduces taxes; that’s a good start and the economy and businesses are responding very positively. But America really deserves Representatives who will stop feeding at the public trough and seriously work at downsizing this out-of-control government. We have dozens of programs intended to serve those in need that are duplicative, spending on “bridges to nowhere”, and elected officials who do the bidding of lobbyists instead of constituents. If government were small, it would be less intrusive and cost less to run. We deserve a Congress that considers what’s best for the country, not what’s best for their bank account.
I am the proud daughter and granddaughter of veterans, and as Congresswoman, I will wake up every day asking what we can do to better serve those who served us. My patriotism is rooted in the brave service of my family and the countless brave men and women who wore the uniform and kept us free. I believe our military personnel were mistreated in many ways under the previous administration. They faced uncertainty because of indecisive leadership by the commander-in-chief, and they suffered through unacceptable health care delays and deteriorating quality of service at VA facilities. Under President Trump, they are getting the decisive leadership they need to accomplish their mission and restore America’s leadership in the world, and they are regaining the respect they deserve from their President and a grateful nation, both here and at home.
The Second Amendment isn’t about “duck hunting”. The Second Amendment protects the Constitutional right of every law-abiding American to keep and bear arms. Period. Gun-grabbers in Washington (from both parties) are constantly looking for opportunities to weaken the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. As your Congresswoman, I will be an unshakable defender of the Second Amendment and will oppose the gun control agenda from wherever it comes!
