Quotes on the Issues

Immigration

I oppose sanctuary cities. I support merit based immigration reform that is comprehensive, including building the wall, technology, border security through Homeland Security and ICE. With the mounting level of unmarked graves at the southern border it is clear that we need to deter people from making the dangerous journey to cross our borders illegally.

Healthcare

I believe patients and doctors, certainly not government bureaucrats, should be in charge of health care decisions. I’m for expanding choice and competition in our health care system. I strongly oppose socialized medicine.

Budget

We need to start taking this problem seriously, fix the tax code and close the loopholes and start proactively implementing a plan to reduce the national debt. Our debt is a national security issue.

Environment

There is a distinct need for the U.S. to export cleaner energy sources to the developing world, as well as to the biggest CO2 emitters, such as China and India. Crushing our own economy, as the Green New Deal would have us do, will not stop worldwide growth in emissions or decrease worldwide energy demand.

Environment

I currently support Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s March 2020 proposal for introducing the New Energy Frontier legislation to promote research and development for carbon capture technology and establish a “Carbon Innovation Hub” to achieve an environmental moonshot: turning CO2 and other greenhouse gasses into valuable commodities.

Education

I support TEACHERS, public school and private / parochial. But why don’t we have school choice? All the elites have school choice. I support the expansion and advocacy for occupational training and trade schools as well.
