Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Singh's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Economy and Jobs
Excerpt: "We are suffering the worst economy in a generation; perhaps since the Great Depression of the 1930’s. In order to restore our employment rate to its rightful health and rationality to our markets, with neither crazy booms nor devastating busts, the government must act decisively… to STOP fiddling, meddling, threatening and interfering in markets, creating uncertainty, raising the costs and risks of doing business and hiring employees. "
  • Support the Troops and their Mission
Excerpt: "Defend America at home and abroad with constitutional law, firm diplomacy, a strong military and effective intelligence."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "The socialistic reform plan offered by the Democrats is unnecessary and destructive and won’t work. We can do better, by loosening the chains on voluntary cooperation and the private marketplace, permitting people to buy insurance independent of what state they live in or what job they’re working at the moment."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "Last year pain at the pump that we all felt was very uncomfortable for most of us and its ripples are being felt through the economy. World oil is or will soon peak and the economics of supply and demand are going to continue to drive the price of oil higher and higher over the foreseeable future."
