Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe abortion should be illegal, except to prevent the death of the mother, or in the case of rape/incest.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

We must continue to strengthen our military and intelligence. We must improve our vetting system for entering our country.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a practicing Catholic. I believe Jesus Christ is our savior. It is essential we live moral lives under God.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I would encourage you to visit my website, www.meuserforcongress.com. I am pro-life, support the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

I believe that through competition, state block grants, health care savings accounts, allowing health care association groups we can increase coverage that is adequate and affordable.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

We should be very competitive with taxes and regulatory environment that favors business, not hinders. Currently, it is too cumbersome. Government's role should be as minimal as possible and its role is to support and enable a pro-growth economic environment.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

We should make the Tax Cut and Jobs Act permanent. We should make efforts to reform our tax system flatter, fairer and simpler.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

We must create an environment that encourages businesses to grow and employ hardworking Pennsylvanians, the better off we will be. We need to reduce taxes and regulations. We are already seeing how President Trump's agenda of cutting taxes and reducing regulations is lowering unemployment rates.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

In the short term we cannot make changes to people who have been guaranteed these benefits currently. However, we need to look at reforms to ensure the stability of the system moving forward.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I believe my experience in the private sector helping to build a business over the last twenty-five years. I understand the unique challenges our business owners face on the tax and regulatory side. Additionally, I served as the Secretary of Revenue and raising my family and being part of the region for the last thirty years. I have been an active supporter of countless Republican candidates, including President Donald Trump.
