Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Houston's website highlights the following campaign themes:

Rebuild Our Middle Class
  • Work to stop so called "Right to Work". We can't revive a struggling economy by making things harder for those who actually fuel our economy.
  • Make sure that sustainable businesses are in our communities to offer employment. We have to bring jobs back to continue to grow.
  • Give the unemployed workers a new start by ending hiring discrimination of the unemployed. Instead help them get jobs so they can actually benefit society and help them stay on their feet until they find these jobs.

Make Sure Everyone plays by the rules

  • We need transparent and accountable government. Too often our leaders do not seem to answer to anyone except themselves. This must Stop. We need to remind them who they work for.
  • Lobbying needs to be reformed so that votes pass laws, not lobbyists. The government is suppose to protect the people, not the corporate interests.
  • We need tighter controls on who is spending our tax money. We don't have a revenue problem in our government, we have a spending problem.[2][3]
