I support the policy that has worked for sixty years - diplomacy backed

I am a fiscal conservative. I support initiatives that create productive jobs with
investments in American infrastructure and technology and eliminate incentives and
subsidies for outsourcing.

insurance system which is competitive, high quality, cost efficient, and equitable.

ecosystems, and healthy environment.
