Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

  • Term Limits: "Establish term limits for members of congress."
  • Healthcare: "Replace the Affordable Care Act known as ObamaCare with free market solutions."
  • Immigration: "Establish an uniform rule of naturalization, and make sure it’s enforced. (Art 1, sec 8, U.S. Constitution)"
  • Taxes: "Simplify the tax code, and other cumbersome laws and regulations. Complexity only creates confusion and added expense. Companies and individuals spend untold hours and money in an attempt to comply with these laws. A new industry has been created for “compliance officers”, many of whom helped write the regulations in the first place."
  • Judicial Equality: "Remove any and all laws that favor a race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, political faction, etc. over another group. Laws need to apply uniformly for every member of society. No favoritism. This will breed harmony if all live under the same expectations."
