Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Senteney's Facebook page outlined the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Taxes: "I would like to introduce a bill that puts an end to Federal Income Taxes... I would like to introduce a National Sales Tax of 12%...The NST would apply to all transactions, from everyday transactions to "Wall Street" transactions. For example, if company A want to buy Company B for 1 Million Dollars the would pay 120K Dollars in taxes. This would eliminate the complexity of our current tax system, and eliminate the loopholes."
  • Invest in America Act: "All Federal Agencies, would transition to only using and purchasing; goods that are manufactured in U.S. Factories. All Contractors, Sub-Contractors, and Service Centers will only be U.S. based corporations."
