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.
