Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Barlow's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Taxes And The Economy

  • Excerpt: "Utah’s balanced budget law ensures that state government lives within its means. However, that doesn’t stop government from increasing “the pie” by raising taxes, I will stand strongly in opposition to tax increases."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Government should not be in the health care business. The free market approach is preferable to leaving decisions to bureaucrats. More freedom to choose and innovate will keep our health care the best in the world."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "I believe in respect for the rule of law. We cannot turn a blind eye to the problems created by illegal immigration but we must balance this with the realities we now face since the federal government has been derelict in its duty to protect our borders."

Education

  • Excerpt: "A vibrant economy depends on a well-educated work force and in order for our state to remain competitive we must focus on continual improvement of our education system. I believe we are moving into a new and exciting education world thanks to online learning."
