U.S. House of Representatives
I am a Highland precinct person, and I have run for this office prior times. The last time I ran was in 2010 and received 40% of the vote. Self taught in government and economics.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP THREE GOALS?
Repeal Obamacare, and replace it with real health care reform plans. The Forbes plan would be a good start.
Create a plan for jobs. Stop all the government regulations on businesses that are restricting job growth. Stimulate the entire economy by replacing the current tax system with the Fair Tax, this is a National Federal Tax that eliminates the IRS 100%.
Protect or Borders and make English our national language.
QUESTION 1: WHAT PROMPTED YOUR DECISION TO RUN?
Congress and Washington is out of control with spending and increasing our National Debt. We have a Congressman that is making a career of protecting the Washington elite and not "We the People".
QUESTION 2: WHY SHOULD VOTERS CHOOSE YOU?
I believe government is out of control and needs to be smaller and spend less of our tax money. I know lower taxes generate more tax revenues and increase taxes reduce jobs and growth.
QUESTION 3: WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON YOUR FIRST DAY IN OFFICE?
Get sworn in office. One person in Congress can't change something unless you have 217 like minded individuals vote for the same legislative bill. It would be Term Limits for Congress. Three terms in the Senate, and 6 terms in the House.
QUESTION 4: ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION?
We have a $17 Trillion national debt that is on budget. Some thing that our Congressman and Washington doesn't talk about is the estimated $100 Trillion off budget liabilities that Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid is costing the taxpayers.
