Protecting 2nd Amendment Rights
As an avid outdoorsman and hunter, the 2nd Amendment holds special significance to me. Owning and using a firearm is not just a privilege, it's a right enshrined in the U.S. Constitution by our Founders. With the 2nd Amendment under continuous attack, I believe that we must stand up and protect the God-given right for law-abiding Americans to own, keep, and maintain firearms.

To me, the 2nd Amendment and the right to own arms is not up for debate. That's why I've received the endorsement of the NRA throughout my public service and maintain a 100% scorecard.
Cutting Runaway Washington Spending
Runaway Washington spending is one of the greatest threats our nation faces, burying our children and grandchildren under mountains of debt. This is a bipartisan problem as both parties love to spend when they're in power.

In my view, our government should operate like a family at the kitchen table, spending only what we take in. I voted for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution that ensures that our country isn't just writing IOUs for future generations to pay.

I've supported legislation that resulted in the largest cuts in domestic discretionary spending since World War II. However, more must be done to rein in our nation's debt.
Standing Up for Life
America has a long history of standing up for the vulnerable, and there isn't a group more vulnerable than the unborn. Protecting life is one of my utmost priorities, and that's why I have a 100% record with Ohio Right to Life.

I believe that Roe vs. Wade was decided by activist judges and should be reversed. At the same time, we can't wait to end the most egregious anti-life policies including late-term abortions and federal funding for abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
Securing the Border, Fixing Our Broken Immigration System
What makes America great is the belief in the rule of law, in that we are all playing by the same set of rules. However, our broken immigration system has led to a country where millions are here illegally while those looking to come into the country legally must wait for years.

The fixes to the system should be straightforward and it starts with securing our border. If our nation isn't able to control who is coming into our country, then the other changes won't mean a thing. We also need to institute e-verify to ensure employers don't profit off of illegal work.

At the same time, we can't let cities and localities flaunt the law and refuse to carry out the laws of the land, also known as 'sanctuary cities.' It's time these sanctuary jurisdictions are ended, once and for all.
Providing for the Common Defense
We have the world's greatest fighting force thanks to the outstanding men and women that volunteer to serve in our armed forces. With a world that is becoming increasingly dangerous, it's important that our military has the resources they need to confront those that seek to do us harm. That list includes terrorist organizations and rogue states like North Korea and Iran.

In addition to ensuring our military is fully supported, we must take care of our veterans that have bravely served our country. That means fixing the VA and ensuring that the promises that were made to them are kept.
Creating Jobs and Growing the Economy
Under the Obama Administration, one trillion dollars’ worth of new regulations were put into place. I've fought against the bureaucracy every step of the way. In order for our nation's small businesses to grow, we need to lift the burden of over-regulation and over-taxation off of them.

That also means fixing our convoluted, broken tax system. Our tax code is over 70,000 plus pages of carve-outs and exemptions that only serves corporate interests, not the little guy. That's why I worked to pass legislation to ensure we have a tax code that is simpler and fairer to Ohio families and small businesses.

The new tax law also means hardworking Ohioans keep more of their hard-earned money. Eliminating burdensome regulations and cutting taxes will ensure our economy is running at full speed.
Repealing Obamacare; Promoting Patient-Centered Health Care
Obamacare has been a failure, resulting in skyrocketing premiums, fewer choices for patients, and counties across the country that have no insurers on the individual marketplace. Out of the 23 co-ops set up under Obamacare, 19 of them have failed. In 2016, 6.5 million people chose to go without health care and pay an IRS penalty rather than buy insurance at the sky-high premiums under Obamacare. Simply put - Obamacare must be repealed.

I have been steadfast in my opposition to Obamacare in Congress. I have voted repeatedly to repeal it in favor of patient-centered health care. Health care decisions should be between you and your doctor, not left up to government bureaucrats. Under the tax law that has been signed into law by the President, the individual mandate is repealed, providing needed relief to millions of families.

We need to get rid of all of this disastrous law once and for all, and I believe that we should eliminate the Senate filibuster to get it done. Obamacare is causing real problems for Ohio families, and it's time for it to go.
