Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Carr's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Public Safety: "As a husband and father of two (with a third on the way) nothing is more important to me than keeping my family safe. For that reason and because I felt so strongly about serving my community, I became a Deputy District Attorney for Los Angeles County. In my current role I try cases involving some of L.A. County's most notorious gangs, as well as cases involving domestic violence and cruelty to animals."
  • Taxes: "Although taxation is a necessary feature of good government, our tax code today is neither fair nor efficient. We need to make our tax system simpler, reduce the many burdens placed upon job creators, and close the many loopholes so that all of us pay our fair share."
  • Jobs: "Too many Americans today are not finding the kinds of opportunities that our economy provided only a decade ago. The Government’s top priority must be to implement a tax and regulatory structure that rapidly grows our economy and encourages job creators, so that all of us, and our children, will be able to find the jobs and careers that they deserve."
  • Education: "On the whole, our education system in America is not worthy of our children. An inferior education imposes enormous economic and personal costs on American families. As the product of a public school education, I know full well that we need to fix our schools, increase the salaries of our teachers, and give our children the kind of empowering education that will allow them to realize their potential."
  • Healthcare: "We need a healthcare system that covers all Americans while maintaining our country’s qualitative edge in terms of medical care and expertise. As the husband of a medical doctor in private practice, I believe that we need to balance universal coverage with a reimbursement system that will allow patients the broadest possible choice of doctors."
