We as Nevadans, as Americans, face many challenges today – a weak economy, high unemployment, crushing national debt. But we’ve never backed down from challenges before and we’re not going to start now. After all, we were the people who turned a hot and desolate desert crossroads into a thriving city and the Entertainment Capital of the World.
We can get our economy moving again and get people back to work. We can reduce excessive spending, balance the budget and pay down the debt. We can defend our nation while preserving our rights and our liberty.
All these things we can do but we need representatives in Washington who will use some common sense to offer effective solutions to our challenges. We need representatives who aren’t afraid to put power in the hands of the people. We need representatives who
understand that, while government can sometimes help, many times the best thing it can do is get out of the way. What we don’t need are more big-government, big-spending politicians who are going to smother us with more debt and more centralized control.
When you send me to Washington, here is what I’ll do to bring the economy back, bring jobs back and bring America back:
Jobs and the Economy:
- Restore the economy and create jobs through pro-growth, pro-business policies
- Eliminate and prevent excessive regulations that strangle small businesses and stand in the way of job creation
- Promote policies that will bring energy costs down and ensure a reliable supply of affordable energy for American families and businesses
- Increase energy independence
Budget and Spending:
- Stop wasteful spending
- Ensure government programs are spending your money efficiently and achieving their goals and get rid of those that aren’t
- Fight for a simpler and fairer tax system – lower rates and fewer loopholes so Washington insiders can’t use the tax code to reward favored businesses
- Find overseas military jobs that can be insourced using technology and return them back to the United States
- Restore sanity to the budgeting process – reduce spending and create a plan to balance the budget
- Support a strong military that is trained and prepared to defend against any foreign enemy
- Ensure that any cuts to military spending reduce waste and duplication – don’t gut our military by cutting vital programs and systems
- Take care of our veterans and their families
- Promote a strong, effective, common sense foreign policy that advances America’s interests in the world
- Implement vast improvements in our nation’s ability to assess foreign nations – discover threats before they materialize and identify opportunities for new alliances
- Support our allies and oppose our foes
Liberty and Constitution:
- Protect and defend the Constitution – a government of limited powers that preserves the rights of its citizens
