Issues

Abortion ‌

I am 100 percent pro-life. I believe in the sanctity of human life, that life begins at conception, and in protecting the rights of the unborn.

Agriculture ‌

It is important that Congress supports the growth and development of the agriculture industry by fighting for policies that will encourage economic growth in Missouri and nationwide.

Conservative Values ‌

For each piece of legislation I vote on I ask myself a number of questions such as: does it reduce the size of government, promote personal responsibility, strengthen the family, reduce the tax burden and promote personal freedom?

Education ‌

My top priority for improving education is to remove burdens and let the state and local authorities decide what is best for our children.

Energy ‌

Our current domestic energy production cannot meet the needs of consumers, which is why I support an “all of the above” energy policy, which takes advantage of all of our options and resources.

Health Care ‌

People, not the government, are the source of prosperity in our country and they make the American health care system the envy of the world.

Immigration ‌

I believe in legal, regulated and appropriate levels of immigration. America is a nation of immigrants. Our forefathers immigrated to this land in search of freedom from tyranny and oppression and immigration has remained a prominent feature of American society throughout the history of our nation.

National Defense ‌

One of the most important responsibilities of our government is to keep our nation safe.

Small Business ‌

Small businesses are the heart-beat of this economy, representing 99.7 percent of all companies in America, employing half of all private sector employees and accounting for over half of the private sector economy.
