Sensibly Address COVID-19
Consistent sensible guidance based upon actual science, not politics and profits, is needed to protect the individual citizens as well as the overall health of the nation. People should be empowered to make their own healthcare decisions for themselves and their families.
Stop Deficit Spending
We do not have a revenue problem – we have a spending problem. With an unsustainable national debt, we need to reduce spending on special interests and balance the budget. By cutting wasteful spending, we will not need to raise taxes.
Our military preparedness is suffering from policies aimed at promoting diversity rather than merit. We need to restore our defense strength by taking politics out of the military. Our country risks war when we project weakness.
Restore Energy Independence
Sound policy has been proven to make America an energy exporter. Bad policy has reversed that and has put a drag on our economy with high energy costs. A sound energy policy will help reduce inflation and reduce the burden on the working class as well as promote the strength of the nation.
A good education is important to the success of the individual as well as the nation. States need flexibility to improve their K-12 programs. Student loan programs for higher education need to be restructured to help make college more affordable and provide accountability for the educational institutions.
Immigration and Border Security
The legal immigration system is costly and time-consuming. We need to fix this and reduce the bureaucracy for those wanting to join us in the American Dream. Our border security needs to be restored to curb the flow of illegal immigrants, dangerous narcotics, and potential terrorists.
Lower the Cost of Living
The cost of living for Connecticut residents is too high. By ending wasteful government spending, we can reduce taxes as well as help reign in runaway inflation. If we implement pro-energy policies, we will lower the cost of energy, which is a significant direct cost to households as well as a driver of inflation.
