U.S. House 3
1. Marriage: The 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges U.S. Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision.
2. Immigration: Building a wall or other barrier along the entire border with Mexico.
3. Religious Liberty: Allowing churches to endorse candidates by abolishing the Johnson Amendment.
4. Electoral College: Electing the President of the United States by a nationwide popular vote rather than by the Electoral College method that is currently in use.
5. Balanced Budget: Requiring a balanced federal budget every year.
6. Abortion: Prohibiting abortions except in cases when the mother’s life is at risk.
7. Guns: Reinstating the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban.
8. Civil Liberties: Amending the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 to add sexual orientation to the list of protected classes.
9. Marijuana: Enforcing federal anti-marijuana laws in states like Arkansas that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana.
10. Sanctuary Cities: Ending sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants.
11. What should be done about the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants who are in the U.S.?
The first step in addressing the 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States is to close our borders. America is a nation of laws, and we must eliminate the incentive to break them before we turn to solving for those who are in this country illegally.
12. How can the U.S. prevent mass shootings?
In order to prevent mass shootings, Congress and the federal government need to work in partnership with state and local governments, schools, parents, and community leaders to ensure that not only are current gun laws enforced, but also that we address and destigmatize mental illness, one of the most significant causes of these horrendous acts of violence.
13. What type of health care reform do you support?
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act exacerbated the problems plaguing our health care system while significantly driving up the cost of care. Without serious reform, spending on health care will continue to drive our nation’s balance sheet deeper into debt. We must enact reforms, including the sale of insurance across state lines, changes to our tort system, and making Medicare and Medicaid sustainable for future generations.
