On the Issues

CUT TAXES to Create Jobs and Grow the Economy

New Jersey pays the highest taxes in the nation, has one of the worst business climates and has one of the highest rates of outmigration. As a member of Congress, I will vote to make the tax cuts permanent, eliminate the cap on SALT deductions and cut regulations to create jobs and grow our economy.

STRENGTHEN OUR MILITARY and Honor Our Veterans

As an Army reservist, I believe in Ronald Reagan’s motto “Peace through strength.” In order to keep our Country safe, we need to strengthen our military by ensuring they have the resources necessary to combat terrorism, protect our interests, and keep the peace. We also need to ensure that our veterans have the care and resources they need as they transition back into civilian life, including addressing PTSD, homelessness, and unemployment.

END ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION and Secure Our Borders

We are both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws, and both should be respected. We need to secure our borders, reform our broken immigration system, and end the cycle of illegal immigration. And we need to end the practice of Sanctuary cities for those that commit crimes. Whether they are legal or illegal, anyone who commits a crime should be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law.

PROMOTE EDUCATION Accountability and Parental Choice

Education is the civil rights issue of our time. Every child deserves access to a quality, affordable education that includes accountability in our classrooms and allows for parental choice. I support an “all of the above approach” that includes public schools, charter schools, parochial schools and private schools and allows teachers the opportunity to teach and students the ability to learn.

DEMAND NEW JERSEY’S FAIR SHARE From Washington

New Jersey continually sends more money to Washington than it receives, shortchanging us in transportation, education and other federal aid. As a member of Congress, I will fight to ensure we get our fair share, so that projects like the Gateway Project are fully funded.

INSTITUTE TERM LIMITS to Clean Up Washington

Being an elected official should be considered a service, not a career. We need to clean up Washington, D.C.’s culture of corruption and it starts with term limits. In addition to stopping corruption, it helps bring fresh voices and fresh perspectives to Washington. I pledge to serve no more than four 2-year terms and will fight to institute term limits for all our of members of Congress.
