Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Virk's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Education
Excerpt: "Although we invest heavily in our education system, American kids are ranked far below other nations when it comes to math, reading and basic science."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "We all realize what a treasure we have with our natural resources. That's why we live here and our respect and love for the outdoors is what makes us so special."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "There's been an enormous amount of confusion about the new Healthcare reform bill. In all honesty, the Democrats haven't done a particularly good job of explaining it and, as far as opponents are concerned, it seems they've passed up no opportunity to try to scare the wits out of American voters by using distortions, exaggerations and outright disinformation."
  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "Small businesses constitute 85% of workforce of US. Promoting policies which help small, main street businesses, especially new businesses, are essential and helping true engines of job growth."
