Budget

I support a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. Families have to balance their budgets. We should expect no less from the government. We must stop out of control spending.


Taxes

Taxes are too high, the middle-class continues to be over-burdened, and our tax system is too complicated. I believe we should simplify our tax system and implement a Fair Tax.


Faith and Values

I am pro-life, pro-family and pro-America. The government should not be allowed to tell religious institutions who they should hire or what kind of services they have to provide.


Border Security

We cannot solve our illegal immigration issues until we ¬x the problems at our borders that are allowing drug dealers and people who want to do us harm to cross into the United States. We need more boots on the ground and more technology to stop illegal entries into our country.


National Defense

Our military must have the best equipment and best support possible. We must be ready to confront our enemies at home and abroad from a position of strength


Veterans

We made our veterans a promise when they put their lives on the line to serve our country and protect American freedoms. We must make veterans’ benefi¬ts easier to access and make the Veterans Administration more customer friendly and effective


Health Care

We must repeal The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act known as “Obamacare” and institute reforms that will lower costs, protect patients’ access to healthcare, and keep our health care providers from going out of business


Energy

We must stop Obama’s war on Texas energy. I support comprehensive energy policies that allow drilling for oil and natural gas, seek to expand clean coal technology, and promote safe nuclear energy.
