Campaign themes


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

  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "While American families try to make ends meet, the federal government spends at an alarming and unprecedented rate. The budget deficit has exceeded $1 trillion in each of the last three years and is projected to exceed $1.2 trillion this year. The national debt is approaching $16 trillion. Forty-three cents of every dollar the federal government spends is borrowed."
  • Job Creation and Economic Growth
Excerpt: "In January 2011, the Administration announced a new get-tough policy on overregulation. Acknowledging that “rules have gotten out of balance” and “have had a chilling effect on growth and jobs,” we were promised a comprehensive review of regulations imposed by the federal government."
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "Comprehensive tax reform is essential to the long-term stability of our economy."
  • Energy
Excerpt: "Washington politicians have failed to advance an energy policy that will lead to American energy independence and lower energy prices. They have blocked construction of the Keystone Pipeline that would bring oil from Canada to America and create thousands of jobs."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "In March 2010, the administration estimated that the cost of the health care provisions of Obamacare would be $931 billion over the period 2010–2019. In March 2012, the Congressional Budget Office estimated the cost of the health care provisions of the law to be $1.76 trillion for the period 2012-2022, nearly double the 2010 estimate."
