Justin Hewlett was a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House representing the 25th Congressional District of Texas. He was also a 2014 judicial candidate for the Johnson County Court in Texas.
Hewlett's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Grow America’s economy and spur new job growth.
- Excerpt: "I’ve spent the last 28 years in the private sector building and growing small businesses— a skill set that’s desperately needed in Washington. I’ll use my experience to ensure our federal government operates more like a business and much less like a bureaucracy."
- Our economy also is hindered by a federal tax code that is in desperate need of reform.
- Excerpt: "It’s unfair, inefficient and complex, as well as a burden on many small businesses. And with almost half the population not paying taxes, it places an unfair burden on those of us who do."
- Cut wasteful spending to reduce our national debt.
- Excerpt: "More national debt has been accumulated during President Barack Obama’s administration than the other 43 presidents combined, with a jaw-dropping $3 million added every minute."
- Put an end to ObamaCare.
- Excerpt: "When President Obama’s national heath care scheme was signed into law, the program’s cost was expected to be approximately $940 billion. Today, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the cost is actually somewhere around $1.76 trillion."
- Oppose any tax increase on working families.
- Excerpt: "For far too long, hardworking families in Central Texas have subsidized the free-spending ways of Washington. I’m committed to making sure the federal government doesn’t take any more from your pockets than it already does."
