Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Brion's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Energy & Environment
Excerpt: "Energy and the Environment are inextricably linked and we need to protect our environment through a sensible energy policy."
  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "The government shutdown, sequester and political grandstanding over the Affordable Care Act are shortsighted and have needlessly damaged the economy and job creation."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Strong publicly funded schools are a cornerstone of America’s greatness. We need to recommit to public education and wisely invest in our future. "
  • Our Society
Excerpt: "The individual right to bear arms is a central part of the American tradition. The right to own and use firearms should be protected while existing laws are effectively enforced. We need to continue the discussion of common sense ways to improve the safety of our communities while respecting the rights of citizens."
  • Campaign Finance
Excerpt: "Unlimited campaign contributions and political spending by corporations is a problem and needs to be addressed. Corporations are not people."
  • Health Care
Excerpt: "The Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) is flawed, but important legislation that provides a great deal of improvement to many aspects of the private insurance system. As a lawful central component of this system, it is now critical that the efforts of congress be focused on improving the ACA to make it work for America."
