Defined borders are essential to any sovereign nation. We must be able to control who comes in and who goes out. Those who come in illegally may not be criminals, but they are outlaws and are not entitled to any concessions from taxpaying citizens of our country.
No Free benefits to illegal aliens.
Tragically, in the USA, an unmarried illegal alien with several children is given more cash support than a disabled U.S. Veteran. This is simply not right. As your legislator, I will make every effort to introduce a bill to terminate the benefits currently provided to illegals.
Veterans are our national treasure. Looking after them must take priority over welfare recipients. We have over 17,000 homeless veterans just in the greater Las Vegas area. Veterans have found benefits they enlisted for eroded or eliminated at a time when they most need them. This is particularly true of medical and family benefits. I will work to correct this shameful situation.
PRESCRIPTIONS: Too many veterans are facing difficulties obtaining prescription medications; circumstances arise when the DOD does not stock medications for various reasons. When a DOD pharmacy or local pharmacy charges a veteran hundreds of dollars for a co-pay, something is amiss.
Veterans were promised care for their service induced ailments as compensation for putting their lives in harms-way. It is offensive for a desk bound bureaucrat to tell a combat disabled veteran that his doctor is wrong, and he cannot have the medication prescribed.
I intend to initiate a full review of the medical supply system to provide our veterans, and if applicable, their families with the best medication at a low or no cost option.
If you are a veteran and have difficulty obtaining your medications, please tell me your story. I will add it to my tasks.
Your donation of $20.00 and your VOTE will help all veterans to have a brighter future.
Tax payers should not be burdened with paying for those who abuse the welfare system. The system must be able to protect those who are in need. Those who are capable must work.
Monthly drug test will determine the welfare benefits.
Tax payers should not be subsidizing unlimited number of illegitimate children.
When elected, I will immediately work to have the National Firearms Act of 1934, 1938 and 1968 repealed. The more recent ones will basically become mute. I will instigate a careful review of all bills designed to limit the firearms, ammunition or magazines available to the public. Any restrictive portions to be removed.
Time to get the Federal Deficit under control.
Start with transparent audit of the Federal Reserve!
Do a serious evaluation of government programs to stop unconstitutional spending and work towards a balanced budget.
Senators and Representatives are to be under Social Security and have the same medical and retirement plan as the rest of the country.
They should have a 401K supplemental retirement plan that they can contribute to if they wish. The Federal Government will match up to $10,000 per year.
Founding Father Ben Franklin called it right, when he said if we educate our children without teaching them in ethical values, we will only succeed in creating educated menaces to society.
