Questions & Answers

1. What are your Qualifications for Office? (50 word limit)

My unique combination of education and professional experience helps make me a creative problem solver. With four years in the House of Representatives, I have been making a difference for the people of the 25th District and for Missouri. I will focus on bringing Missouri values to Washington to change the course of our country.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

Getting Missouri's economy back on track will take strong incentives like my plan, the Made in America Tax Credit. Our workers should be given a level playing field and our companies should be rewarded for creating jobs, not shipping them overseas. Our workers should make the next generation of hybrid cars hear in Missouri. We must also increase access to affordable health care. Health care costs have stymied our economic growth and must be contained in order to create new jobs. I also want to honor our veterans by expanding the services of the VA and cutting the red day that delays care they have earned.
