Campaign themes


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

  • Education
Excerpt: "As a father of two, education is one of the most important issues to me. I believe that in order for the principles of liberty, which this nation was founded on, to work we must have a great equalizer for everyone, and that equalizer must be education."
  • Economy and Jobs
Excerpt: "I believe that the economy works best and that good jobs are created when there is a competitive market. I believe that this means the government cannot put up regulations that inhibit the growth of businesses, play favorites, or benefit certain industries."
  • Reform
Excerpt: "I want to reign in the government to be an efficient entity for the people. That means balancing our budget and making sure that we are making the right sacrifices to get us out of this economic downturn and ensuring that we are led to a recovery and able to rise up to an even brighter future than we saw before."
