THE ISSUES

Budget:

Run government like a business! Overspending by our elected officials and the resulting deficits is one of the greatest problems faced by the United States.

Economy:

Improving Americans lives requires a strong economy that is dependent on reduced regulation, lower taxes, and fair trade agreements.

Education:

Education is key to the future and breaks the cycle of poverty! Returning education to the states and empowering parents using school choice and vouchers will create educational opportunities for their children.

Energy:

Support all forms of energy provided by a free market including renewables, coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear power & hydro-power.Tom Heck Endorse by Nevada Firearm Coalition

2nd Amendment:

Support the 2nd Amendment and the rights of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves.

Immigration:

Support strong border security (the wall), elimination of chain migration, and merit-based immigration for those who will benefit America.

Military:

The most important responsibility of government is to protect and defend the citizens.  We need to revitalize our military capabilities that have been seriously degraded by a lack of adequate funding in the last eight years.

Veterans:

Ensure our veterans receive the care they deserve. Respect our veterans by standing for the National Anthem.

Terrorism:

We need to take on and fight the terrorists overseas before they get to our shores. Paramount is the protection of our citizens wherever they may be.

Taxes:

Support lower taxes. People spend more effectively than government. In reality, “Companies don’t pay taxes only you do!” We should consider an additional tax cut or a flat tax of 15%.

I signed the Tax  Protection Pledge! As Ronald Reagan said: “The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much. Everywhere I look – local, state, and Federal – legislatures continue to grow the government. You never hear a politician say, “Let’s cut spending!”  We need to start with goals and objectives and then use them as a basis for cutting spending.

Health Care:

Obamacare has wreaked havoc on the health-care and should be repealed. The free-market approach will provide you with better health care for less coat with more choice.

Term Limits:

I signed the Term-limit Pledge! This pledge says that Senators will only be allowed two terms and Congressmen will be allowed 6 or a total of twelve years. We need new blood, talent and fresh ideas in Congress.
