Campaign themes


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

  • Bring Jobs Back to the USA: "Lower the U.S. corporate tax rate from 35% to 25% or less. (China's corporate tax rate is 25% and Germany's is 30%) And, you wonder why everything these days is made in China! America invented assembly line automotive manufacturing, fast food restaurants, and sent astronauts to the moon. If corporate tax rates were lower, we could manufacture most of the products we now get from China -- right here in the USA!"
  • Energy Independence for America: "I Support a domestic energy production policy which promotes America's energy independence through the use of oil, natural gas, next generation clean-burning coal, & nuclear power, right here in America. Let's stop depending on other countries for our energy supply."
  • Tax Reform: "Replace the current tax system with a non-progressive or FLAT TAX. With a FLAT TAX, everyone pays the same rate, regardless of their income. It's fair and simple. Families will still receive tax breaks through child tax credits or (EIC)."
  • Reduce the size of the Federal Government: "Trim spending through entitlement reforms, cutting wasteful spending, and eliminating unnecessary programs wherever and whenever possible. Smaller government helps create a bigger private sector, thus promoting economic growth and prosperity for all."
  • Repeal and replace "The Affordable Healthcare Act.": "Don't let bureaucrats decide what type of healthcare you can have access to! Obamacare is simply too costly and far too complicated. Already, the new law has caused millions of people to lose their covereage. Plus, healthcare costs are going up, not down. We were promised by President Obama that we could keep our coverage and our doctors, while saving an average of $2,500 per year. That, simply was not true!"
