I am a fiscal conservative and have a conservative view of the Constitution. Any issue will be processed based on our current debt and the legality with regard to the Constitution. I WILL NOT INTRODUCE, SPONSOR OR CO-SPONSOR BILLS THAT WILL LEAD TO INCREASING OUR NATIONAL DEBT.

The approval rating of Congress is 14% although lobbyist are doing well for their clients in Washington. This is one of our largest problems in Washington leading to a larger debt, high cost of Health Care and less influence of "We the People".
We need to cut spending and raise revenue without raising taxes. The size of the national debt is a serious long-term threat to the health of the U.S. economy and to the standard of living that our children and grandchildren can expect. The consequences for the American people will be crushing taxes, higher interest rates, fewer jobs, and more vulnerability to foreign creditors
Our health care costs are far higher than other industrialized countries with similar results. Health Care Lobbyist spend more than any other industry.
The number one priority of our federal government is the nation's defense. Currently we spend 2.9% of our GDP on defense, the lowest since WWII. We need to invest in our defense including cyber security.
I would support legislation banning Muslim Syrian refugees from entering the United States.
We need to secure our borders and take down the Welcome sign. No amnesty. Birthright is for those who have a legal citizen as a parent.
I believe in the Constitution and I will defend it. The Constitution has made the United States a free and prosperous nation. I am against any attempt to limit the 2nd Amendment.
Defend the Constitution of the United States of America
The Constitution is the law of the land, to protect us from government and to protect our liberties. The recent executive branch has defied the Constitution and Congress has refused to defend this sacred document. We need to restore the Constitution, reduce the power of the federal government and give power back the states and the people.
We should get the federal government out of the business of curriculum and keep local control of our schools
Government should not be in the energy promotion business and should not pick winners and losers.
We should have term limits for those in Congress
Protecting Liberty and the Constitution
We need to fight executive overreach and protect the constitution
I am Pro Life
Veterans and our Men and Women protecting us
Veterans deserve our gratitude and support, we should use troops on the ground when we have a clear path of winning and use over whelming force.
Judges should interpret the law, not make up the law
