The Values We Grew Up With
Personal responsibility. Hard work. Providing for our families. These are the values we grew up with, and the values that Faith wants to bring to the House of Representatives. This means making sure that those who work hard to contribute to American society are rewarded for that work. It means recognizing that individual freedoms can and will do more good for America than all the tax hikes in the world ever can. A vote for Faith is a vote for what our Founding Fathers wanted: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Faith considers not only job creation, but career creation a top priority. Spending taxpayer dollars on infrastructure is fine; however, it cannot be our primary means of job creation as these jobs are temporary. Faith believes the best way to go about this is to introduce and pass business-friendly legislation that will keep jobs from going overseas.
Taxes and Spending
Most of us learned about the value of money as small children. We learned we couldn’t buy a two-dollar ice cream bar if we only had one dollar. We also weren’t allowed to take money from other people every time we wanted a new toy. As we grew up, we learned to clip coupons, shop clearance racks, and make our dollars stretch as far as they could go. Faith sees no reason why we can’t apply this to our laws: Be responsible with money, don’t buy what we can’t afford, and respect that Americans have the right to keep as much of their hard-earned paychecks as possible. Our policymakers should employ the same strategies that Americans would use at home when faced with similar issues.
Expand charter schools so that parents and students can focus on the education that is best for their learning abilities. For example those with strong math abilities should be able to select a charter school that builds on these strengths while developing the whole learning experience.
Our education funding should be geared toward the classroom, quality education and highly qualified teachers not on the growing education bureaucracy that steals the value of education from the classroom.
While legal immigration is one of the things that made our nation great, Faith strongly believes in protecting our borders and national security. Illegal immigration takes jobs away from people who are here legally. Granting citizenship to illegal immigrants encourages people to break the rules and is unfair and insulting to all the immigrants who followed the rules.
