Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

  • Jobs and The Economy: "The future of our economy depends on our ability to create new jobs. Everyone knows the unemployment rate is too high and that solutions to solve the problem are not coming from Washington. Politicians make promises they know they can’t keep, like bringing all manufacturing jobs home from China."
  • Obamacare: "Healthcare in America was in bad shape before President Obama, and he was right to tackle the issue head-on. Unfortunately, Obamacare created several new problems for each original problem it tried to solve. Premiums and care prices are rising even as people are losing the doctors and health plans they were told they could keep."
  • Education: "I believe strongly in school choice. Rich kids already get to choose what kind of education they get. I believe other children should too. Middle class and poor children are forced into their local public school regardless of how good or bad it is. But no school should be given a monopoly on our children’s education."
  • Public Safety: "To stem the tide of neighborhood crime, there are no substitutes for strong families, great schools and good jobs. The vast majority of crimes are committed not from malice but from socioeconomic desperation. Parents, teachers and communal organizations like houses of worship have a big role to play in giving our young and needy the tools to pursue lives free of crime."
  • Transportation and Infrastructure: "Taxpayers have been asking their public officials for decades to improve the infrastructure and transportation services they rely on. They’ve been met with plans to spend hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on high-speed rail systems that won’t help, and highway expansions that never materialize."
