Budget

Yes In order to balance the budget, do you support reducing defense spending?
NoCandidate Answer In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?
Other or expanded principles
It is time to stop borrowing money from future generations, as these actions do not lead to long-term growth and economic stabilization. The solution to our problems will require dramatic action and shared sacrifice. The sheer scope of our fiscal situation means every part of our government ledger sheet must be scrutinized.
Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?
Other or expanded principles
I support full and immediate disclosure of campaign contributions and spending. We need campaign finance reform that will end special treatment and apply the same rules equally to all individuals, corporations and others.
Yes Do you support capital punishment for certain crimes?
Yes Do you support alternatives to incarceration for certain non-violent offenders such as mandatory counseling or substance abuse treatment?
NoCandidate Answer Do you support mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug offenders?
Other or expanded principles
Yes/no format doesn’t present a true picture of positions, as the answer often depends on details of the particular proposal.
NoCandidate Answer Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?
YesCandidate Answer Do you support lowering taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?
Yes Do you support providing tax incentives to businesses for the purpose of job creation?
Other or expanded principles
I support redesigning the tax code with an emphasis on broadening the base, reducing complexity, lowering rates, eliminating anti-competitive provisions, and unleashing economic growth. Our tax code is far too long, complex and anti-competitive to serve as the long-term foundation for the economic growth our country needs.

Some federal spending, such as infrastructure investments, provide economic growth and are appropriate federal expenditures.

NoInferred Answer Do you generally support requiring states to adopt federal education standards? View Citations
Other or expanded principles
Education should be governed at the state and local levels.
YesCandidate Answer Do you support building the Keystone XL pipeline?
YesCandidate Answer Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, thermal)?
No Do you support increased regulations on the hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) industry?
Other or expanded principles
A comprehensive national energy policy must contain an all-of-the-above approach and embrace technological solutions to enhance security and lower costs, including hydropower and nuclear. A robust policy should have cost-effective renewable options, not government-chosen solutions.

The appropriate level of regulation on hydraulic fracturing should be determined at the state and local level.

Do you believe that human activity is contributing to climate change?
NoCandidate Answer Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?
Other or expanded principles
We should be making clean energy less expensive, not making traditional energy more expensive. We need more innovation and less regulation. Clean energy is about more than just wind and solar. Our country should pursue its own clean energy agenda that embraces technological solutions to enhance security and lower costs, including hydropower and nuclear. A robust policy should have cost-effective renewable options, not government-mandated solutions.
YesCandidate Answer Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?
Other or expanded principles
YesInferred Answer Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship? View Citations
Other or expanded principles
A rational immigration policy must be built on several important principles. The United States must commit the resources necessary to have the strongest border enforcement realistically possible. Our immigration system must not grant amnesty to those who enter our country illegally. Guest worker programs must assure that American citizens have the first right to access available jobs. And, an efficient and workable guest worker program must be developed that will provide employers with a reliable, verifiable and legal system to identify guest workers who are legally in the country.
NoInferred Answer Do you support same-sex marriage? View Citations
Other or expanded principles
Notwithstanding the Supreme Court ruling, I have consistently maintained that the states should have jurisdiction to decide this issue.
YesCandidate Answer Do you support allowing individuals to divert a portion of their Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts?
Other or expanded principles
