Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Teich's website highlighted the following campaign themes, dubbed "Texas Values:"[1]

Protect Conservative Ideals Of Faith, Family And Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "The foundations of a free society are rooted in the family. The sanctity of life, traditional marriage, and free enterprise begin in the home."

Fight Obamacare

  • Excerpt: "As your State Representative Henry will fight the government intrusion into people’s healthcare decisions. Making sure the Attorney General is fully funded to continue the legal challenges to Obamacare. Fighting the expansion of Medicaid and sponsoring legislation which makes it clear that healthcare decisions are between you and your doctor, not a bureaucrat."

Property Rights And Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Property ownership is the bedrock of the free market and a free society. High taxes, government spending, and threats of eminent domain harm property values and rights."

Water Rights

  • Excerpt: "While water is essential to life, water rights are essential to property ownership. These rights are under assault."

Increase Border Security

  • Excerpt: "Henry will work to provide law enforcement and the justice system with the tools to effectively secure our border and prosecute those who do not respect the law."

Promote Local Control Of Schools

  • Excerpt: "Bureaucrats in Washington or Austin are not equipped to help educate our children. Local school boards, administrators and teachers are in a much better position to determine what our children need to succeed in their education."

Strengthen Our Economy

  • Excerpt: "The greatest threats to the Texas economy are taxes and government regulation. The federal government continues to raise taxes, issues regulations, and harm the private sector. This makes reducing the size of State government even more important."
