Questionnaire

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?

I am a defender of life. I respect those who have a different opinion but the move by some states to allow late-term abortion and post-birth infanticide is atrocious. In the Senate I will fight to: • Eliminate all taxpayer funding of organizations like Planned Parenthood • Enact the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” • Promote adoption as a viable option before a baby’s birth. Today, more couples are experiencing fertility problems than ever before; if handled properly, adoptions for unwanted pregnancies can make many couples’ dreams come true. I believe that we must demonstrate to our children that we value their lives — one day we will rely on them to value ours. This is why I believe that New Jersey should promote a philosophy of life within our government, not death. I believe that New Jersey must demonstrate this philosophy by refusing to fund organizations whose primary purpose is to end the lives of our children.


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?

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


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.

No Answer   

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?

(Did not answer)


Healthcare

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

Strongly 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?

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  "To make healthcare affordable, we must employ a three-pronged approach: 1) Recognize that 'Obamacare' failed to deliver better care at lower costs and must be repealed and replaced. 2) Implement a healthcare bill that puts doctors and patients first, not insurance companies. 3) Make it a priority to reduce the cost of pharmaceuticals while ensuring consistent quality and safety."  Source


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?

We must stop radical Islamic terrorism. We should ensure all Americans have the ability to easily exercise there second amendment right. We must ensure the US always has the strongest most powerful military in the world. Public schools should more thoroughly be teaching American values of the US Constitution including liberty and life to help assimilate individuals that want to be American. The American Dream has the ability to take the teeth out of radical Islamic terror but we need to unshackle our economy so that it can thrive for each and every one of us. Barriers to economic success might be a cause. Abroad, US Military assets should identify bad actors that are inciting violent propaganda against the US and Western values. Potential threats should be identified that interact with these bad actors and this information should be provided to US Border Security & Customs officials. Any threat should be barred entry to the US with the ability to appeal in a publicly available forum.


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   

iVoterGuide Note:  Hirsch Singh is not in favor or abolishing ICE. He believes ICE should be able to enforce our immigration laws.  Source

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.

Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  Hirsch Singh is against sanctuary city policies and keeping law enforcement officers from being able to enforce the laws and keep violent criminals off the streets.  Source

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

No Answer   

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  "We want individuals interested in assimilating and adding value to America to have a clear and secure process to earn American citizenship."


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

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

Agree
