Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Phan-Quang's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Immigration: "Controlling admission is a core element of a nation’s sovereignty. The United States Supreme Court has long held that Congress has absolute authority to control immigration by establishing rules for the admission, exclusion, and deportation of non-citizens."
  • Healthcare: "The Affordable Care Act requires everybody to have health insurance. But it does not address the high and rising cost of health care. When health insurance is tied to employment, it will raise the cost of doing business for the employers, making businesses less competitive. This in turn will affect jobs creation, leading to fewer jobs, and resulting in higher unemployment."
  • Second Amendment: "Law abiding citizens have the constitutional rights to own weapons. Due to the inherent high-risk nature of guns, buying and carrying guns must be subject to background check and mandatory safety training and liability course. A database of convicted felons and mentally impaired individuals should be established."
  • Abortion: "Roe v. Wade has been decided since 1973. We can continue the endless debate on this issue from the pro-life or pro-choice perspective. Or we can adopt a more practical approach, regardless of our belief, as how to reduce the number of early pregnancies and abortions. "
  • Fiscal Discipline: "We need to repair our economy and restore consumer confidence. We must strengthen the economy by creating jobs (in particular jobs that help increase productivity in the private sector), lower taxes and reduce the costs of doing business."
