Issues

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

  • Job Creation and the Economy
Excerpt: "I will work to get our fiscal house in order by supporting a balanced budget. The federal government must stop spending money we don’t have."
  • Pro Life, Pro Family
Excerpt: "Did you know that 60 million Americans have died from abortion since 1973? I intend to stand up in Congress for those who can’t speak and bring this national tragedy to an end."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I will vote to repeal President Barack Obama’s flawed health care law. I’m against forcing people to buy health insurance and fining them if they don’t. The law must also be repealed because it provides money to subsidize abortions."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "We must secure our borders. This is essential with the increased threat of terrorists and the illegal drugs entering our country. "
  • Second Amendment
Excerpt: "I support the right guaranteed by the Constitution under the Second Amendment for people to own and use firearms. "
