Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree   

I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

When a mother’s health or life is in danger, rape, and incest.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

Disagree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I propose the elimination of the tax cap and gradual increase of the social security payroll tax.

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

Education should be a local jurisdiction matter and not a federal issue. Accordingly, the federal department of education should be eliminated.

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

None. Please visit my website, www.Peggyforcongress.com, to learn more about my free market proposal to help individuals with student loan debt


Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech by individuals/entities and religion. The state has no authority to bar religious organizations from exercising both the freedom of speech and religion. The church has the right to set employment rules consistent with their religious teachings.


Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

To promote coverage, I propose price transparency, ability to purchase insurance plans across jurisdictions so that consumers can choose the plans and price that fit their needs, and flexibility in the use of the health savings account. Because of the Federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) enacted in 1986, there is no issue with accessibility to healthcare; rather, the issues are affordability and insurance companies retain much of the premiums instead of paying healthcare providers. If healthcare providers are not paid to cover their costs for providing care, they are unable to provide services to patients.


National Security

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree   

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

The United States should support countries who have active plans to eradicate Islamic terrorism. Our government should strictly scrutinize visas from individuals who have known ties to terrorist organizations. Domestically, elected officials should work with Muslim leaders to identify individuals and organizations that teach radical Islam to prevent terrorism.


Immigration

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.

Strongly Agree   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

I support merit-based immigration with emphasis on skills needed for all industries and not just the high-tech industry.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am Christian and follow the teachings of the Bible. I believe that God created each and every one of us for a purpose and we should live our lives in accordance with that purpose even if it is against my own desires and plans.


Qualifications

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?

Conservative   

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

Please visit my website: www.peggyforcongress.com

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

NO

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am a problem solver and not a politician. My proposals are from an economic perspective to ensure that Americans have job security as well as food and housing security. I have over 30 years of experience working in the community and providing direct services on a wide-range of issues including: violence against women and children, human trafficking, water, transportation, housing, environment, elderly care, healthcare, and public safety. I work on solutions and not political rhetoric.


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

I support background checks and denying access to firearms to those diagnosed with mental health diseases. I do not support the broad reach of California’s Gun Violence Restraining Order where the risk of violence is not based on mental health or any evidence-based factors.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Disagree   

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1. Healthcare reform 2. Student loan crisis 3. Immigration reform

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

Racism is always a threat to the safety social fabric of any society because it divides rather than unites a nation. Recently, individuals and groups have used racism and anti-semitism as an excuse to instigate violence, which has caused severe distrust among different ethnic groups and violence.
