Why I'm Running
I’m running for Congress because I want to put my experience and conservative values to work solving problems. I guarantee that I can put together a team that will get things done to benefit the people I serve. I’ve done that in the NFL, I’ve done that in business, I’ve done that in Georgia and I’ll do that in Washington.
Socialized medicine is not the answer. I will push members of Congress to stop posturing and get serious about getting government out of the healthcare business so that choice and competition can flourish in our healthcare system, and every person-from conception to natural death-can be treated with the dignity life demands.
Border Security / Illegal Immigration
This is an issue that is being tossed about like a football. (I’m all in favor of the game of football, but I’m not in favor of treating a serious problem like a game.) Increasing border security is NOT an anti-immigration policy: it’s a domestic safety and security issue, and it favors legal immigrants.
The U.S. Department of Education must be reformed to help state school systems instead of hindering them. Education opens so many doors, and families must be able to choose the best option to educate their children so they will have access to the best opportunities.
Criminal Justice Reform
All too often, our justice system is unjust. We need to be tough on crime, but we also need to focus on prevention and recidivism.
Our immigration policy is long overdue for updating. This nation was built on immigrants, and continues to require the talents, skills, and diversity of immigrants from around the world who are seeking the promises and opportunities of the American Dream.
People are living longer and staying active longer than ever before. We need to redesign and update our programs to better serve the needs of today’s senior population.
America is a nation on the move, yet our transportation infrastructure has been neglected. In many cases, neglect is a consequence of unnecessary rules and regulations that make road construction and repair overly complex, time-consuming and expensive. We must put states back in the driver’s seat so they who are most accountable to the people at the state level can handle the funding and decision-making.
