Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

  • Taxes: "The United States’ economy cannot recover without significant tax reform. As a tax and financial professional, I meet with hundreds of individuals and business clients every year, giving me firsthand knowledge of exactly how much tax Americans are paying, and the undue burden it places on them."
  • Government Spending/Debt: "The United States has a serious spending problem that is jeopardizing our economy for generations to come. Part of my job as a financial advisor is to help individuals and businesses get out of debt, manage their budgets, and live within their means. I firmly believe our government needs to balance its own budget and live within its means, just like the rest of us."
  • Economic Growth & Job Creation: "Our economy is a failure when it does not create jobs and opportunity. Too many Americans are out of work; in many cases it is the interference of our government through high taxes and misguided regulations that takes their jobs away. My plan for economic growth and job creation is simple because America has done it successfully before – government needs to stop attacking small business with failed big government ideas like Obamacare and make our tax rates lower, and the rules simple and fair."
  • Education: "Today, too many children do not have access to the quality education they deserve. As a product of the public school system myself, and the father of two young children, education is an issue that really hits home for me. "
  • Second Amendment: "I believe in an individual’s right to bear arms and strongly support the Second Amendment. The Constitution of the United States should be upheld to the fullest extent and I will oppose any misguided legislation that infringes on this right. Common sense gun laws should not compromise the rights of law-abiding citizens. "
