Issues

Campaign themes

According to Schmookler's website, some of his campaign themes include:

  • Jobs: "America needs Democrats in Congress who will fight harder so that all Americans have the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential and contribute their best to a prosperous American community."
  • Economy: "But simply living beyond one’s means is irresponsible, and I oppose it as a practice for individuals and for our country."
  • Taxes: "Revenue will increase as employed people and prosperous businesses pay taxes. Expenditures will be reduced because employed people do not need unemployment compensation, and there is less need for food stamps."[2]
