Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Out of all the issues that face us as a nation this election cycle, the loss of jobs is the stinging issue that has affected us all. But loss of jobs is not the problem; it is the result."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Health care and jobs are the two lightning bolt issues in this campaign. Health care is the issue that I am the most qualified to speak about of any of the other candidates because I am a practicing orthopedic surgeon."
  • Bailouts and Bonuses
Excerpt: "We need to sever the cord between CEOs and politicians, we cannot continue to leave the working man out in the cold while CEOs run away with millions in tax payer dollars."
  • Taxes & Spending
Excerpt: "To control spending, I will introduce a Constitutional Amendment that will clearly state: No bill can be signed into law that has any amendment, earmark, attachment or other alteration that does not have something to do with original intent of the law."
  • Veterans
Excerpt: "I will never vote for any cuts to veterans and will work endlessly to reclaim benefits to our veterans that congress has taken away. Plain and simple. "
  • Support of The Second Amendment
Excerpt: "There is no one any more adamant that Americans are dearly protected by the above inclusion in our Constitution. Although I am a doctor, I believe the fact that guns themselves do not kill people; people kill people."
  • Tort Reform
Excerpt: "Unless something happens very soon, we will witness the terminal unraveling of health care in America. The nation is witnessing the final step in the decades-long decline of the once best health care system in the world."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "My position on immigration is, has been, and always shall be that illegal means illegal. "
  • Personal Rights vs Security
Excerpt: "I will fight to make sure America remains Free and Safe."
  • Environmental Issues
Excerpt: "As a young man, I witnessed several environmental disasters in North East Ohio. The pungent smell of hydrogen sulfide, the Cuyahoga River burning, and the death of Lake Erie. These events left an impact on me."
  • Agriculture
Excerpt: "Agriculture generates jobs and economic opportunity, creates new sources of energy and offers new foods and products to improve human health."
  • Estate Taxes
Excerpt: "The tax that represents the worst of American life is the Estate Tax. I believe everyone in the country realizes that taxes are necessary, but this tax is not."
