Position Papers
Many say that our economy's headed for a recession, but one thing's for sure, for more than a decade the economic policies coming out of Washington DC have been one-sided, ineffective and have weakened our Middle Class.

Protecting and defending the economic interests of Missouri's working families and strengthening America's Middle Class will be a cornerstone of my candidacy and public service.

This is the story of our growing Health Care crisis and the necessary shift in our national priorities to get things turned around.

Largely it's a story of how politicians have become oblivious to the needs of our people and have sacrificed those needs in favor of serving special interests. I believe in representing people -- not special interests.

We as a national family should fund education as a first priority. Investing in our children's education sets the tone for the care and concern needed for a bright future for America.

No other issue can bless future generations with the power that critical thinking brings like providing a rich and productive education for our children.
