The Right to Choose your School
The best way to create equality is through a quality education. The Department of Education has done nothing but lower the quality of our public education system. Control of education should be taken away from the federal government and given back to states. Every parent wants what is best for his or her child. Bureaucrats in Washington do not know what is best for your child. I full-heartedly support Free Choice of education.
Our healthcare costs are out of control. We must find a way to lower the cost of healthcare while still protecting those with pre-existing conditions. We, as a nation, cannot afford to spend $32 trillion dollars of our money on “free” healthcare. Big government-run single payer healthcare that takes private insurance away from 180 million Americans is not an option. Control of 18% of our economy by un-elected bureaucrats is not the answer. The answer is free market choices with you in charge of your own healthcare, while creating safeguards against erratically high pharmaceutical drugs and treatments.
Sensible Legal Immigration
The United States is a nation of immigrants. Legal immigrants have always been and will continue to be welcomed into our great country with open arms. Being a border state, Arizona has long suffered from our broken immigration system. Politicians use this issue for their personal political gain to the detriment of the citizens they are elected to represent. Some even introduce bills that would allow illegal immigrants to work in Congressional offices. As your Arizona Congressman, I will fight to stop this insanity, and work diligently to legislate a more intelligent and stream-lined Legal immigration system.
The Right to Bear Arms Shall not be Infringed
The Second Amendment is the cornerstone of our republic. It guarantees the inalienable right to defend ourselves and our property against all threats, including tyranny of any kind. Our founding fathers wanted to preserve the individual right to keep and bear arms when they established the republic. I will fight to maintain this right.
