My parents went from picking crops to owning a small business and achieving their own American Dream. I don’t just recognize the issues facing working class families, I’ve lived through them. Sadly, the very policies that allowed my family to succeed are now under attack in Washington. From raising taxes to socialized medicine, progressives seem determined to cripple the U.S. economy.
Americans are experiencing sharp inflation and supply chain issues, which in turn become a tax on the poor.
Instead, federal and state government must enact policies that encourage economic growth, create jobs, and increase wages. It must decrease wasteful spending and exercise fiscal responsibility. I am a vocal supporter of economic empowerment and will continue to fight against big government socialism.
As the son of Haitian immigrants, I understand and support the value of legal immigration. I want to ensure that the American Dream remains possible for those who desire a better life and immigrate to the U.S. legally.
However, our current immigration system is broken, and has been in dire need of reform for decades. Fentanyl can be smuggled freely across our borders, and human trafficking remains a constant problem. Congress has abandoned their responsibility on this issue, and we must, once and for all, secure our nation’s borders to end the never-ending chain of broken policies that harm our children, our families, and our country.
Thanks to pro-school choice policies, I had the privilege of attending a high school outside of my zip code. Instead of attending a poor performing school, I opted to participate in the school district’s Pre-Medicine and Air Force JROTC magnet programs. This meant traveling via public bus and train every day in order to receive a quality education.
Elected officials should be focused, at every level, on policies that encourage parents to get more involved in their children’s education. I do not know where I would be if my parents did not encourage me to attend a better school. It is important both as a parent and as a citizen to review what their children are being taught and what materials will be used. We should encourage positive ways to raise questions and concerns, instead of labeling parents as domestic terrorists. At the end of the day, if a school fails to meet the students’ needs, the parents should have the right to select another.
China is a rising challenge with growing territorial, economic, and military ambitions that conflict with our national and economic security. Beijing sees itself in a long war with the United States for global dominance. Today, we are overly dependent upon the Chinese Communist Party for America’s strategic and vital resources—such as semiconductors, medical equipment, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and defense supplies and technology.
As your representative, I will push to reduce America’s dependence on our foreign adversaries, like China, and support policies that create more jobs at home. Furthermore, I believe the U.S. government should not do business with any entity that is reliant upon forced labor or associated with the CCP’s detention camps.
In the Navy, I served six years and three tours, helping protect our ally Israel from Iranian aggression. I’ve seen firsthand the importance of a strong military and will fight to make sure our troops have the resources necessary to keep us safe. As the most powerful nation on earth, we have a duty to protect our allies, promote peace, and defend the American people from threats both foreign and domestic.
Our veterans swore to protect and defend America and, if necessary, give their life. At the very least, we should provide veterans with the best quality of care and respect they have earned. As a Navy combat veteran, I understand the frustrating obstacles that our nation’s finest men and women must navigate in order to receive their benefits.
I believe veterans should have the flexibility to choose medical care anytime and anywhere.
Unfortunately, our servicemen and women return to their families with scars both visible and invisible. So, it’s imperative that we provide our veterans with efficient and excellent mental healthcare. We are losing too many of our veterans to suicide. It’s unacceptable.
I pledge to tear down the bureaucratic red tape and help ensure our warriors are being equipped with the tools necessary to win the battles they face at home. No more excuses. Our elected officials need to prioritize the health of our American heroes.
Thanks to the disaster of Obamacare, the U.S. healthcare system is in desperate need of repair. But instead of fixing their mess, Democrats in DC are now openly advocating for socialized medicine, a policy that would lead to fewer choices, higher costs, and decreased quality of care.
To solve our current healthcare crisis, we must put the American people in charge of their own healthcare decisions, not Washington. Rather than enacting government-run healthcare, we must push for policies that expand access to care and lower premiums for working families.
Major social media platforms blatantly censor conservative voices and viewpoints. From suppressing posts to banning accounts arbitrarily, Big Tech censorship undermines the values of liberty and free speech that this country was founded upon, especially when they work in tandem with governmental authority. Congress and state legislatures must enact commonsense policies to ensure that companies can’t suppress contrary opinions.
I am a strict constitutional conservative. Protecting the American people’s right to life, liberty, and property is paramount in preserving our nation and the people’s happiness.
I personally believe that life begins at conception. We should protect the rights of future generations.
Additionally, our forefathers not only believed that the right to bear arms allowed for self-defense and the defense of others, but was also the best defense against government tyranny.
I believe in safeguarding the Second Amendment and protecting the integrity of the Constitution. I fight to preserve our constitutional values.
