Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

  • Obamacare: "We are just now beginning to see and feel the full effects of the federal law that’s come to be known as “Obamacare.” These effects include massive job losses, reduced work hours, and increases in all the costs associated with health insurance. We knew something was wrong with this bill that hired 17,000 new IRS agents when what we needed was 17,000 new DOCTORS."
  • The water crisis: " Water policy, as with many other critical issues affecting agriculture, is controlled in Washington, DC, by urban interests. For too long, our incumbent Congressman has been cozy with those interests."
  • The "Bullet Train.": "There is no way the people of California can afford to build this boondoggle, and there is no way the taxpayers can afford to subsidize its operations and maintenance into perpetuity. It is a budget buster for California. The way it is being implemented now is also illegal, since it violates just about every requirement of the enabling legislation (Proposition 1A) passed by the voters in 2008."
