America’s economy is our best weapon against poverty. We must create an environment where businesses can thrive. Congress should enact legislation that reduces job-killing taxes and regulations, enabling more Americans to enjoy their own American dream via economic growth.
Expand Education Options
Our children deserve an education tailored to their individual needs. No child is the same, no career is the same, so our education for each child should not be the same. Parents and students should be given the opportunity to select from a wide range of options when it comes to education and training. Investments in early childhood learning, diverse education delivery models, civics, financial literacy, and vocational options should be embraced.
Support Military & Veterans
America can help maintain peace through strength, and this means our military must have ample resources to operate, innovate, and project strength. We must not only support the men and women of our armed forces as they serve but also after they serve. America should treat our military Veterans with the dignity and respect they deserve for their honorable service to our nation.
Lower Health Care Costs
Heath care costs are far too high, limiting access for millions of Americans. In order to reduce costs we must expand health insurance options, have pricing transparency, eliminate red tape, and open up competition.
In recent years our First and Second Amendment freedoms have come under attack. It is essential for a thriving Republic to maintain both the right of free speech and the right to defend themselves from threats. The Constitution of the United States of America protects the inalienable rights of citizens from government intervention, ensuring those rights are everlasting.
