Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Whelan's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "Bringing jobs back to the Central Valley is my top priority. Fresno County ranks as the poorest county in the state and Merced County is not far behind in fourth place. With a double-digit unemployment rate, we have to reward businesses that provide economic opportunity instead of taxing and regulating them out of the state."
  • Balanced Budget
Excerpt: "Government spending, crushing levels of taxes, and unsustainable debt are only getting worse. Our government’s expansion into the auto industry, financial sector, energy sector, and the health care industry cannot continue. Future generations will be crippled by the debt if we do not confront the problem now."
  • Water & Agriculture
Excerpt: "Bad water policy that refuses to balance human suffering against environmental concerns is hurting us. It’s time we carry the message of common sense solutions to Washington: improved water storage, infrastructure and conveyance equals jobs."
  • Health Care Security
Excerpt: "We already spend more than two and a half times what other industrialized nations spend on health care. Health care decisions need to be left in the hands of patients and doctors, not unelected bureaucrats."
  • High Speed Rail
Excerpt: "Prop 1A (The California High Speed Rail Initiative) passed with only 52.7% of the votes in 2008. Voters now know it was a mistake. This is a boondoggle which will have massive cost overruns. Ridership estimates were highly inflated and don’t take into account what competing carriers (airlines, etc.) will do."
