Issues

Education

As the former Director of the Arizona Governor’s Office for Children, the issue of education is one that I am passionate about.

Energy

Over the past decade, Americans have become increasingly familiar with the day-to-day financial strain caused by exorbitant energy prices.

Health Care

I believe that our health care system must be reformed. But I wholeheartedly opposed the Democrat-led move toward government-run health care in the 111th Congress.

Immigration

Arizona faces a serious illegal immigration problem. Our border with Mexico remains extremely porous.

Judicial Nominations

The issue of Judicial Nominations affects all of us and dealing with it is an important part of my work in Congress.

National Security

As a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, the issues of National Security are especially important to our district and to my work in Congress.

Religious Freedom

When our Founding Fathers established the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in America’s founding, they recognized the preeminent role that religious freedom holds in securing human liberty.

Sanctity of Life

For almost forty years, abortion on demand has placed over fifty million separate scars on America's soul. Each time after the death of their child, mothers were never quite the same.

Second Amendment

I believe the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees law-abiding citizens the right to own and bear arms.

Social Security

It is an honor to represent two communities—Sun City and Sun City West—that are among the finest retirement communities in our nation, and I have also been entrusted with the significant responsibility of working to preserve our Social Security Trust Fund.

Taxes and the Economy

Government is now America’s “biggest business.” Federal, state, and local taxes combined are now greater than the revenues of any single industry.

The Constitution

As a Member of the House Judiciary Committee as well as the Chairman of the Constitution Subcommittee, I remain absolutely committed to preserving our sacred Constitution and the inalienable rights it enumerates.

The Federal Budget

Today, our nation faces a growing budget deficit due to out of control federal spending.

Transportation

As the West Valley’s primary voice in Congress, I realize that one of the most critical transportation issues we face is the traffic congestion and bottlenecks on Interstate 10, which the road was not originally designed to manage.

Veterans

We have been blessed in this nation to be protected and served by the bravest and most noble soldiers in the world.

Welfare

Before new reforms enacted by the Democrat-led government, indications were that the Republican-led welfare reform of the last decade had been extremely successful.
