Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Walsh's campaign website lists the following issues:[3]

  • Better economic opportunity here at home: "Denver residents deserve better access to the American Dream. What does this dream look like for Colorado families? By encountering real opportunity and working hard, we can make a better life. We can give our children a better life than we have had."
  • Ending Healthcare Incompetence: "The creation and implementation of Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster. Obamacare has deliberately deceived the American people. Many thousands (or perhaps millions) of Americans will lose their existing health plans, despite assurances to the contrary."
  • Caring for Constituents: "Most well traveled congressperson in Colorado? Diana DeGette has lost touch with Denver. Over the past sixteen years, she has stopped doing the hard work necessary to care for her constituents. When was the last time Ms. DeGette met with you and listened to you?"
  • Protecting Your Liberty and Freedom: "We deserve a government that respects us—not by constant interference and regulation of our daily lives—but by empowering us and protecting our rights. Our current leadership has failed to protect us. Martin believes in you. Diana DeGette believes in government."
