Campaign website
Leah Campos Schandlbauer was a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 9th Congressional District of Arizona.


Campaign themes


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

  • Economy & Spending
Excerpt: "As Ronald Reagan used to say, no government ever paid the cost of anything. The government cannot do anything without someone else paying for it. There has never been such a thing as a free lunch, and it doesn't exist now. We are all going to have to pay for every service that politicians have decided government ought to provide."
  • National Security and Defense
Excerpt: "Providing for our country's security is the Federal Government's main responsibility. Our military and intelligence services must be well funded and able to confront the varied threats we face. That said, I believe that all parts of our federal government, including the Defense Department and the intelligence sector, have grown without adequate controls and could stand budget cuts without undercutting our security. "
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "The Obama administration’s decision to force through a federal takeover of the nation’s healthcare system was one of the worst decisions ever made by any US president. The legislation must be repealed and decisions about health care must remain between a patient and their doctor. "
  • Border Security & Immigration
Excerpt: "The federal government needs to do its job and secure our border with Mexico, just as Mexico robustly secures its own southern border. Mexico is undergoing a bitter, violent and widespread assault at the hands of vicious drug cartels, which threatens to completely destabilize the Mexican nation. Anyone who asserts that this has not had a huge impact on Arizona is simply not telling the truth. "
  • Life
Excerpt: "I have always been pro-life. In Congress I will be a voice for the unborn and the forgotten. Children are gifts from God and worthy of our protection. A nation that does not value and protect innocent human life cannot be a great nation. "
