Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Doyle's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Obama Care
Excerpt: "I will work with my colleagues to repeal and block Obama's overreaching health care plan and the individual mandate."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "I agree with the TEA party patriots, we are Taxed Enough Already! I will fight any increases of taxes on our already overburdened taxpayers."
  • Spending and Deficits
Excerpt: "You and I can't sustain living beyond our means and neither can our government. I won't allow our great country to turn into another Greece. Quick clamp downs on out of control spending and deficit reduction will be my top priority."
  • Transparency
Excerpt: "I TRULY believe in transparency. Neither Congress nor any other branch of the Federal Government should make or impose on the people that sent them to Washington, laws that affect them without them first knowing."
  • Unemployment
Excerpt: "Millions of Americans are still suffering in our poor economy due to the inaction of our elected officials. Instead of fixing the problem they are content to play political games while unemployment stays at historic sustained highs."
