I am running for Congress to protect and preserve our rights as protected by our Constitution, including the protection of our religious liberties, freedom of speech and 2nd Amendment rights, which are being constantly attacked by democrats and progressives and eroded by activists judges. I am running for Congress to defend our free-enterprise economy against the many forms of socialism, including the Green New Deal and Medicare for All. I am running to defend life, as I am staunchly Pro-Life and oppose any funding of entities that support and provide abortions. I am running for Congress to protect our national sovereignty against the policies of "Sanctuary Cities", illegal immigration and open borders, which are detrimental drains on our jobs, economy and safety of our citizens.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Denying federal funding to “sanctuary cities” that do not comply with federal immigration laws. S* "Sanctuary City" policies are violating federal laws, putting Americans in danger and draining our financial economy. They shouldn't receive federal funding when supporting such policies.
2. Prohibiting abortion except when it is necessary to prevent the death of the mother. S* I strongly support the sanctity of life. Life is a gift from God, and, with the exception of the Mother's health, I don't support abortion.
3. Making permanent the tax relief provisions of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. S* I would support making the provisions of the Act permanent with improved and additional tax benefits to provide further benefits for American businesses and families.
4. Interpreting the U.S. Constitution in light of current times, rather than adhering to the framers’ original intent or text. O* Interpreting the U.S. Constitution in light of current times encourages "judicial activism", thereby making the Constitution only only a guide rather than the rule.
5. Adding “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” and “gender expression” to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination law. O* Adding such "identities" to the law would encourage "objective" standards based on a person's whims rather than on proven subjective standards.
6. Requiring a health care practitioner to provide medical care to a baby born alive who survives an attempted abortion. S* To not provide such care would be barbaric, ethically wrong and inhumane. A baby who survives a botched abortion deserves the same care as others.
7. Enacting federal tax credits for donations to state-based scholarship programs to provide educational options such as private or homeschools. S* Parents should have the right to choose what educational opportunities are given to their children, not the government.
8. Amending the U.S. Constitution to require Congress to balance the federal budget every year. S* The federal deficit is out of control. Individuals and households have to live within their means and government should do the same.
9. Providing any direct or indirect federal funding to Planned Parenthood and other entities that provide abortions. O* No taxpayer money should be used, directly or indirectly, to fund abortion, whether through Planned Parenthood or any other entity.
10. Extending the 1982 deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. O* The states cannot ratify an amendment after its deadline has passed. The 1972 ERA formally died when its ratification deadline passed on June 30, 1982.
11. Expanding background checks to include guns purchased from private individuals. O* Such process is simply a way to introduce additional gun control and track gun owners. This requirement is against the intent of the Second Amendment.
12. Protecting individuals and businesses from being required to provide services or use their artistic expression in a manner that violates their moral or religious beliefs. S* Individual services and artistic expressions are protected by the First and Second Amendments. Progressives want to use activists judges to erode our Constitutional rights.
