Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

TAXES and the ECONOMY

  • Excerpt: "Utah’s balanced budget law ensures that state government live within its means. However, that doesn’t stop government from increasing “the pie” by raising taxes. As your representative I have opposed and will continue to oppose tax increases in all their various forms."

HEALTH CARE

  • Excerpt: "As a medical doctor, I will continue to focus on getting government out of health care. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is not the answer. The free market approach is preferable to leaving decisions to bureaucrats. I support reasonable aspects of health care reform such as protecting children with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage, but challenges such as those can be addressed without destroying our nation financially. With smaller adjustments, the most vulnerable among us can be treated with compassion and provided quality care while we continue to encourage freedom and innovation in health care."

EDUCATION

  • Excerpt: "As my voting history shows, I am a strong supporter of public education while maintaining support for parents to have the tools they need to tailor their child’s educa­tion to the specific needs of each individual. Education is best left to teachers and parents, not to Washington D.C. Education, like everything else, should be decided on the local level."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Utah

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Utah scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
