Plosa-Bowser's campaign website lists the following issues:
- Excerpt: "America was once the best place on earth to start or expand a small business and it can be again. Free enterprise, business, industry and entrepreneurs create jobs. Small business is the backbone of our economy. I will work to reduce taxes on small business and free them from unnecessary, unwieldy government regulation to invest, grow and create family-sustaining jobs."
- Excerpt: "Because I want to protect the quality of care we have in our country, I support a health care system that keeps you in charge of decisions about your family’s care and minimizes the government role between patients and their doctors. No government policy or office should dictate how patients receive health care."
- National Security
- Excerpt: "I believe that a strong America remains the guiding light that shines for freedom across the world. Working closely with our international allies and friends, we must succeed in Afghanistan and keep weapons out of the hands of terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism. I fully support our military forces as they protect our National interests as well as efforts in Congress to develop new technologies and training programs for our first responders to counter new and dangerous threats."
- Social Security
- Excerpt: "Social Security is a promise made to those who have paid in to the system. We as a nation must keep our promise. With our economy back on track we can begin to look for meaningful reforms to Social Security that protect the promises we have already made."
- Excerpt: "The basic building block of our nation is the family and as a working mother, I will support and protect families so parents can maintain their parental rights, have the freedom to provide for their needs, bear no more than a reasonable tax burden and support a culture of life."
