iVoterGuide Note:  "I support pro-choice and believe that a woman has complete decision power over her body."  Source

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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

(Did not answer)


Economy

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

iVoterGuide Note:  Candidate’s position on this issue could not be determined by iVoterGuide research staff.

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  "Let this be clear ... If you are anti-muslim, anti-jewish, anti-christian, anti-athiest, anti-any other religion, you do not support our US Constitution. Period. There is no rebuttal. We believe in all rights."  Source

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

(Did not answer)

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.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  "I have examined several of the proposed policies and feel the best plan forward would be similar to Pete’s (Buttigieg) Medicare for All Who Want It plan; it is projected that it will cost about $1.5 trillion over 10 years. It will be paid for by rolling back the Trump corporate tax cuts, which will generate $1.4 trillion in revenue, and the rest from cost savings that result from empowering the federal government to negotiate drug prices with pharmaceutical companies. It is important not to modify health care plans that are working for people."  Source

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


National Security

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

(Did not answer)

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.

(Did not answer)

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

(Did not answer)

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.

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  "According to some of the research I have read,  the most cost-effective way to increase the number of Americans who get a four-year degree, they found, is to increase tax-payer spending at all public colleges and eliminate tuition for students from families with incomes under $60,000 a year. Free community college, an increasingly popular idea, is much less effective, actually reducing four-year college education rates while low-income Americans reap the smallest benefits, the researchers found. General tuition cuts for all aren’t as bad but lowering the price of college turns out to be not as effective as increasing instructional spending at colleges."  Source


Values

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