Kaiser's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Taxes and Spending
- Excerpt: "I believe that government should be streamlined and operated in such a way that all of our citizens are proud of their quality of life and the efficiencies in their state government. I want South Dakota to be a place where people come to work within a Constitutional system of limited government. Fiscal responsibility is essential."
- Excerpt: "I believe that we must free up our marketplace so that businesses are encouraged to create more jobs. We can do this by cutting business taxes and unnecessary regulations."
- Excerpt: "We have not seen a true free market in health care for decades. I strongly oppose government intervention and believe individuals have the right to make their own choices when it comes to health care. I will vote for any legislation that demands the federal government stay out of South Dakota with the unconstitutional health care bill passed in 2010."
- Excerpt: "Education is best served at the local level. Each community is unique and the interests of our towns are always better left to local parents and teachers. I appreciate and encourage an increase in private schools and home schooling."
- Excerpt: "I believe in the rights of states to work under their unique constitutional and legislative systems. I oppose all efforts of the federal government to get involved in the decision making processes and law enforcement efforts of states. I will always work against state adoption of unconstitutional laws like REAL ID and I will never support legislation because of strings attached by the federal government. (i.e. I will not support a seat belt law to get “millions” in funding from the federal government.)"

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
