Richard Morgan (Texas)
|U.S. House, Texas, District 21|
Morgan's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Jobs & The Economy
- Excerpt: "At 39.2%, our combined corporate tax rate is the second highest among all democratic industrialized nations in the world. Companies require employees and investors in order to operate."
- Balanced Budget Amendment
- Excerpt: "Though I support a balanced budget, I do not support the Balanced Budget Amendment in its current form. Article I of the Constitution gives Congress the power to raise taxes and determine spending. The President was not responsible for submitting a budget until the 1921 Budget and Accounting Act, which unconstitutionally transferred that power to the Executive Branch."
- Education is a Local Issue
- Excerpt: "I believe that education is inherently a local issue and that parents and the community can do a better job educating a child than a bureaucrat in Washington could do. Rather than sending our tax dollars to Washington so that a portion of it can be sent back with strings attached, I would fight to return education spending to the state and local level."
- School Choice is Important
- Excerpt: "As someone who was homeschooled all 12 years, I fully support school choice. Being homeschooled allowed me to learn at my own pace, and it’s what allowed me to get ahead at an early age."
- Reward Investing in Our Children
- Excerpt: "I would support a bill allowing any money spent on a child’s education to be tax deductible. That way, we avoid raiding local public school funds, while rewarding parents who choose to homeschool or send their children to private school."
- Abolish and Privatize the TSA
- Excerpt: "Despite the fact that TSA screeners wear badges and uniforms and call themselves “officers”, they are not required to receive any law enforcement training and do not even have the authority to arrest people. I support HR 3608 which would strip TSA screeners of their badges and uniforms unless they have received such training."
