On the issues


“Our seniors are the ones who have borne the burden of building and maintaining this country, yet sometimes it seems like the federal government is waging war against them. Seniors in this congressional district remember that my office worked very hard for 15 years to help them deal with their challenges with government red tape and bureaucracy. I was the Author and Prime Sponsor of H.R. 1058, the Seniors Financial Security Act. This important bill will amend the Internal Revenue Code to repeal all income taxes on social security income. Seniors have already paid income tax on the amounts of money they pay into Social Security. I believe it is outrageous that they also have to pay income taxes again on their Social Security benefits at a time when they are retired and are often least able to afford it. Ultimately, I want to continue to do for seniors what I always wanted for my own mother and father, protection from financial hardship, from crime, from open borders, from runaway inflation, from a massive and growing debt that threatens to bankrupt the Social Security system, from weaponized government, a weakened United States military, and protecting their right to have as much control as possible over their retirement, their Medicare, their healthcare, and their own lives.”

For such a time as this

You already know that we accomplished so much in the past, and the seniority that I will return to Congress with puts me in a position to get so much more done in the future. Right now, we are standing in front of a volcano of leftist ideology spewing on our children, our government, our security, and our economy. There is no way back. We must seize this fleeting moment to launch over this toxic insanity, and onto a bedrock foundation of a brighter future for our children and future generations.”
