Budget

The solution to Washington’s spending problem will never be taking more money from American families. While Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are trying to elect more liberals to raise your taxes, I have worked with President Trump to put more money in your pocket. We passed the largest tax cut in a generation and are working to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse in government. Congress needs to fix Washington’s spending problem and we need more fiscal conservatives in office to do it.

Immigration

Securing our borders is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the federal government. Democrats are calling for open borders and trying to abolish law enforcement agencies responsible for stopping drug cartels and human traffickers. I am working with President Trump to build the wall, stop the flow of drugs and secure our southern border.

Immigration

We have a crisis on the southern border. We have an immigration system that rewards those who break the law. Human traffickers and drug dealers are pouring into our communities. With over 60,000 Americans dying each year due to cartel fueled opioid overdoses, every state has become a border state.

Healthcare

As a doctor treating uninsured patients in Louisiana’s charity hospital system for over 25 years, I’ve seen firsthand how government-run health care fails patients. Now, as Louisiana’s U.S. senator, my mission is to lower the cost and improve the quality of health care to ensure every Louisianan can have affordable coverage. Democrats are pushing Medicare-for-all that would triple taxes, take away your ability to choose the care that’s best for your family and force all Americans into a one size fits all plan. Meanwhile, I am leading the effort in Congress to lower drug prices and create competition, allowing you to choose something better.

My record has an A rating from the Susan B. Anthony List: Pro-Life Scorecard. As your Senator, I have and will continue to protect unborn children by opposing any legislation that would expand the practice of abortion or allow your tax dollars to pay for the murder of an unborn child.

Defense

Finding out the VA was requiring veterans to travel across the country for an organ transplant they could have received at a more qualified hospital miles from their home was concerning. As a doctor, I know this can lead to worse outcomes for those veterans. I secured passage of legislation as part of the VA MISSION Act to allow eligible veterans to receive these life-saving surgeries closer to home and I am working on legislation to bring better outcomes to all veterans.

Environment

Thanks to Louisiana workers, we are leading our country into an era of energy dominance. I am championing legislation to get rid of the red tape and obstacles standing in the way of our oil and gas producers. President Trump is supporting our efforts to drive Louisiana in the right direction and create good-paying jobs in the Pelican State.
