My Positions on Key Issues
1. Taxes. My opponents favor either higher taxes, or a 'flat tax': I am opposed to both.
2. DoD: We need our military bases and Federal funds in Maryland: Pax River and Joint Base Andrews are our biggest employers: I fully support their missions!
3. The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act: A shameful travesty perpetrated on America that will cost millions their health care benefits, increased insurance premiums, lost wages and even their jobs.
4. Education and the Common Core Curriculum implementation: we need funds to properly re-vamp education; Common Core was rolled out without proper grounding, making our teachers pay for it.
5. Environment and the Liquid Natural Gas proposed Calvert plant: I support Calvert's LNG plant as a safe, clean energy source and economic boon to Southern Maryland.
6. Gun control: Legislation does not control guns; people control guns. I favor responsible firearms ownership.
7. Gay Marriage: "Who am I to judge?" -Pope Francis
8. Abortion: A person's a person, no matter how small; I am Pro-Life
