Campaign themes


Tacherra's campaign website lists the following issues:[2]

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

  • Healthcare: "Jim Costa must be held responsible for the failure of ObamaCare as the Congressman who cast the deciding vote against the wishes of the Central Valley’s residents. Poor planning and implementation of ObamaCare is costing millions of Americans their health insurance, raising rates and costing jobs."
  • Tax Rates: "When the I.R.S. is not abusing political opponents of Barack Obama with audits and intimidation, it is damaging job growth and our economy. I favor a national flat tax with minimal deductions for politically connected contributors to unleash capitalism on our failing economy and create good paying jobs again."
  • Illegal Immigration: "I fully support policies that will keep families together and secure our border but amnesty for millions is not a solution and will cost trillions of dollars. There must be incremental reform that recognizes we are a beacon of freedom for people savaged by repression (Cambodia and Cuba come to mind), not just difficult economic circumstances."
  • Second Amendment: "I will always be a loud voice in support of protecting our rights to keep and bear arms. I will be a thorn in the side of those like Nancy Pelosi and Jim Costa who want to take our guns and freedoms away."
  • Environmental Protection: "We must protect our farmland and all the environmental benefits it creates for our Central Valley way of life. I will support limiting pollution from big cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles instead of targeting Central Valley farmers. The current system is broken by big city liberal bureaucrats who create the pollution and then look to attack us when they feel guilty about it."
