During the last four years, our gross national debt has skyrocketed by 63% to over $15 trillion dollars. Our government borrows over 40% of every dollar it spends. I will support true spending cuts and a Balanced Budget Amendment.
We can promote new job creation by cutting red tape and regulations, lowering all taxes, and demanding a free trade policy. I will work to get government off the backs of small business and eliminate regulatory laws that hamper economic growth.
Obamacare is one of the most costly pieces of big government legislation ever rammed through the Congress, and we must repeal it immediately. In its place, I will support patient-centered reforms that preserve your right to see the Doctor of your choice, protect small businesses, and lower costs.
I opposed TARP and the auto bailouts. In Congress, I will oppose any future taxpayer-funded bailout. The government should never use our tax dollars to pick winners and losers in the private marketplace.
Obama’s administration has trampled our Constitutional safeguards, producing unlimited deficits and promoting unprecedented dependence upon federal subsidies and entitlements. I will support legislation that is in keeping with the original intent of our Constitution and work with my colleagues to rein in the size and scope of the federal government.
As a longtime pro-life activist, I will work in Congress to end to the tragedy of abortion. I’ll work just as hard to reduce barriers to adoption, and promote policies that support groups offering hope and assistance to mothers facing crisis pregnancies.
Our nation must honor its commitment to those who’ve served our country, and to the families of those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice. This includes making sure we keep our promises with respect to health care and retirement benefits. I will never support harmful cuts to military spending in order to fund costly, liberal, big government programs.
Protecting the institution of marriage is a critically important issue and one I’ll defend in Congress. I firmly believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. I support the NC Marriage Amendment on the May ballot.
Improve education by returning decision-making and funding to the local level. Parents have the right to choose Charter Schools, Private Schools, and Homeschooling. I support the Parental Rights Amendment.
We must reduce our dependence on foreign oil by tapping into our national gas reserves, which are the largest in the world. We must also immediately open up new domestic drilling and pipeline opportunities, along with exploring way to use renewable energy sources.
Our core religious freedoms, guarded by the First Amendment, are under assault by the current administration and other groups who want to silence all public expression of faith. I will staunchly defend our religious liberty from government infringement and control.
I am a strong supporter of our 2nd Amendment rights. Our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms is absolute, and North Carolina’s sporting heritage is an important part of our state history. I will oppose liberals’ efforts to create a national gun registry and any other anti-gun legislation that erodes our gun rights.
