Campaign themes


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

  • America's Debt
Excerpt: " The U.S. Federal Debt climbs billions of dollars each day. This debt will probably be $20 trillion within five years and should raise grave concerns for every American. It took 30 years to get to this point and reducing this Federal debt to a manageable level will take years of effort and strong political leadership to make monumentally difficult decisions."
  • The Economy
Excerpt: "Private sector working people as well as public sector working people need the assurance that they will once again look forward to having their lives restored to a decent level. It can happen if the ongoing exploitation by the ultra-wealthy is ended."
  • Education
Excerpt: " The continual “Dumbing Down” of our students is yet another danger American family’s face. An educational system, that does not give students the tools for critical thinking, allows news and television to not be challenged by a well educated people. These become roadways of ignorance and extremism."
  • Help keep energy jobs in Texas and protect our natural resources
Excerpt: "While other states receive federal research funding to create better photovoltaic cells and better battery technology, Texas politicians direct additional funds to Exxon to dig deeper more dangerous wells. As your Congressman, I will work to redirect reasonable portions of such funds to new energy research and development."
  • Six Month Anniversary of "The Affordable Care Act"
Excerpt: "There is much to complain about concerning the "Affordable Care Act" that became law six months ago. But when you wade through the misinformation and rhetoric, families across America will find there is a lot to like."
