Campaign themes


Li's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Economy
Excerpt: "We need to get America working again. This is done by encouraging businesses with tax relief, less regulation, and the ability to use their creativity to discover and produce better services and products. This approach will increase the number of jobs we have available for our workforce."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "We spend 2.7 trillion dollars per year on health care, surpassing a lot of other country’s total GDP, such as France’s. We need to cut down administrative and other unnecessary costs that put a stumbling block in price-conscious, efficacious healthcare delivery. We need to support providers (the medical experts closest to their patients) to deliver excellent healthcare."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Our children are the backbone of America, and education starts at childhood. We need to ensure pre-college schools in America are the best in the world. Our children are suffering in schools with reduced funding, teachers that are saddled with politically correct curriculums and school administrations that are top-heavy."
  • Values
Excerpt: "The families in our country are the foundation of our happiness and success. The family unit can be made up of many people whether they are grandparents, adoptive parents or natural parents. Many of the families in this country are unique in their own way and we need to support them so that they can flourish at home and in their influence in their community."
  • Foreign Policy
Excerpt: "Endorse a strong military defense, but focus on facilitating better communication between countries and utilize civilized, educated modality to deal with differences and promote ultimate, sustainable peace."
