My Top 3 Priorities

  • Repeal Obamacare and replace it with a healthcare law that puts patients and doctors first and not insurance companies.
  • Strong Defense and National Security. It is urgent that U.S. armed forces be modernized to meet our security commitments and threats we face.
  • Reduce taxes and burdensome government regulations. Congress should ease burden on businesses and thereby encourage growth and more employment.

As a doctor, James Veltmeyer knows first-hand the burdens that ObamaCare imposes on health-care providers. That’s one of the important reasons he’s running for Congress!

Respected Doctor: James is the Chief of the Department of Family Medicine at Sharp Grossmont Hospital where he provides leadership to over 200 doctors.

Conservative Republican: committed to defending the Constitution, James Veltmeyer is a free-market conservative and a defender of property rights. His experience and firmly held principles tell him that limited government and a strong national defense are the foundations of freedom.

No New Taxes: James Veltmeyer signed the official No New Taxes pledge and is committed to fighting any new taxes. James knows that excessive taxes discourage job growth. For a strong economy, America needs to reduce the twin burdens of taxes and regulations.

National Security: The dangerous decline of our nation’s international prestige and influence must be reversed. The Obama Administration has cut funding for defense, especially the Navy, over the last two terms. Restoring our nation’s military strength will be a major goal for James Veltmeyer as a Congressman.

Honors: James Veltmeyer was selected by his colleagues through the San Diego County Medical Society as a “Top Medical Doctor in San Diego County.”
