Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Protecting The Economy
Excerpt: "Texas has accounted for nearly half of the job growth in the country during the economic “recovery.” The reason for our success has much to do with our free-market thinking. I believe in supporting policies that create the best economic climate for people to live, work, and do business."
  • 21st Century Education Reform
Excerpt: "In Texas, 80,000 new students enter our public school system each year. Yet, public education saw some of the deepest funding cuts in recent history. As Board President of Fort Bend ISD, I guided our district through a $50 million dollar funding cut."
  • Promoting Texas Energy & Lowering Gas Prices
Excerpt: "Our area is the energy capital of the world. The industry is one of the reasons our state has been fiscally and economically resilient. It creates high-paying careers and contributes tremendous amounts to government coffers. "
  • Healthcare Restructuring
Excerpt: "Obamacare is threatening our state with burdensome regulations that need to be stopped. The current projected caseload for the state Medicaid program in 2014 is 4.1 million enrollees. Now add to that a projected 2.2 million more with the implementation of Obamacare."
