Important Issues

President Trump

President Trump

It is hard to express the level of importance of the achievements of President Trump so far in his first term. I am proud to support him and reject those that seek to destroy him and our country. In Congress, I will be a partner for the President to build upon this success.

Life

Life

Life begins at conception and MUST be protected at all costs. I will protect the unborn and fight to eliminate all government funding of Planned Parenthood.

Second Amendment

Second Amendment

The 2nd Amendment is critically important and it must be preserved. I will fight to protect your constitutional right to bear arms and will strive to make life easier for law abiding gun owners.

Immigration

Immigration

Our immigration system is broken and fixing it is a top priority. We must secure our borders, build a wall and stop illegal immigration. We also need to reform our immigration system to reward those wanting to come to America with skills, work ethic and a love of the American way of life.

Veterans

Veterans

There is no group of people I value more than veterans of our armed forces. Freedom certainly isn't free. It is paid for in the blood and health of our warriors and our federal government should be ashamed at their neglect. ALL veterans should be able to take their VA benefits to ANY healthcare provider. It must be easier and cheaper for these heroes. They deserve it and I will always fight to protect them for the sacrifices they have given to protect us.

Healthcare

Healthcare

I am embarrassed that Republicans in Congress have not yet fully repealed Obamacare. I will vote to FULLY repeal Obamacare in Congress. Not a partial repeal, not a half measure...a full repeal. I will then work to establish a market-based healthcare system that encourages competition, reduces costs to consumers and restores the doctor-patient relationship once and for all.

Jobs and the Economy

Jobs and the Economy

Bureaucratic red tape and over-regulation are killing our small businesses. President Trump is working hard to roll back regulations, but there is still a lot of work to be done. In Congress, I’ll work to get the government out of the way so our entrepreneurs can do what they do best – innovate and create jobs for hardworking Americans.

National Security

National Security

We have the greatest military in the world and we need to ensure that we continue to support them with funding for training and provide them the equipment they need. Our service members are out there every day defending our constitution and way of life and we owe it to them to make sure they have everything they need to do their job, protect us and come home safe.

Social Security

Social Security

I was brought up to believe that if you made a promise, you have to keep that promise. I think that is especially true of Medicare and Social Security. Our nation has made a promise to our seniors, and it’s our duty to keep it. I am against changing or reducing any benefits for those at or near retirement.

Agriculture

Agriculture

In Hillsborough, Polk and Lake counties the agriculture industry is incredibly important. From the critical strawberry and citrus industries to our nursery growers and ranchers, I will be a strong advocate for our agriculture industry and make sure we get the fair deals they deserve on regulations, labor and international trade.

Education

Education

The education of our children is too important to be left in the hands of the federal government. Common Core’s one-size fits all policy is hurting students and making it harder for us to compete internationally. I’ll work to eliminate Common Core and return control of education to state and local governments.

National Debt

National Debt

Congress, including Republicans, are on a runaway spending train. Our national debt and deficit are out of control and will ultimately lead to the end of our republic. I will ALWAYS seek to cut spending and reduce taxes. America needs Representatives smart and courageous enough to make a Balanced Budget Amendment a reality.
