Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Regarding some of the issues in the race, Breen said:
"Creating and maintaining jobs are a priority to Ohioans. Wright Patterson Air Force Base is the foremost aeronautical and aerospace research organization in the Air Force and maintaining its funding is essential. Educating our children so they have the skills to find jobs in an ever-changing global society is critical. Our current representatives complicate the issues by focusing on the needs of their lobbyists and refusing to look outside their partisan agenda. They are mired in gridlock and dysfunction and are unable to work together to pass legislation. What Congress lacks is leadership to come to a common consensus."[3]

He supports the anti-abortion "heartbeat bill" and opposes President Obama's health care plan. Breen said that improving the economy would require removing red tape.
