Campaign Issues

Marcy outlines the campaign issues below on his website.

  • Economy

Excerpt: "The tax and spend mentality of our President and the Democrat-led congress is making it harder to create new private industry jobs. The only way out of this recession is to permanently lower taxes and cut the size of government."[4]

  • Taxes

Excerpt: "I will support holding government to these constitutional limits. I believe the “Fair Tax” plan is the only fair way to fund Constitutional Government."[5]

  • Bail-outs

Excerpt: "I do not support bailing out the people and businesses that created the current economic crisis. Rewarding failure is not the American way. I do not believe in the idea that anyone or anything is 'too big to fail'."[6]

  • Education

Excerpt: "Encouraging competition between school systems by allowing vouchers and charter schools will improve the quality of education. The tax dollars should follow the child regardless of what type of school the parent decides their child should attend."[7]

  • Defense

Excerpt: "I support our troops and will assure they have the best equipment to fight our enemies. Our forces must be able to project our Nation’s power throughout the world at a moments notice."[8]

  • Respect For Life

Excerpt: "What is called abortion is really the killing of unborn children."[9]

  • 10th Amendment

Excerpt: "As a United States Congressman, I will never forget what the Founding Fathers intended and I will work to live up to their expectations by protecting and defending The Constitution and all of it’s amendments, including those that guarantee the rights of all States."[10]
