Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Immigration Issues
Excerpt: "It is my belief that our current administration, as well as Congress, does not want to secure our borders… why? I believe it is mostly about money, which in these trying times we can all sympathize with, but I am here to tell you that I think we need to step back and start thinking differently!"
  • Social Security Reform
Excerpt: "Our current social security system is on the verge of a major crisis, caused by greedy men and women from Congress over the last 40 years, which may signal the end of our ability to take care of our disabled and senior citizens. Now it has fallen to our generation to fix this problem, which will not make everyone happy; in fact, it will most likely anger everyone, including myself!"
  • Arizona Military Bases
Excerpt: "Our military bases generate over $9 billion dollars a year to our state’s economy. Many retirees relocate to Arizona because of our bases and that must continue. I will keep fighting to keep our bases in Arizona as I did while I was mayor. Arizona is unique."
  • Arizona Forest Fires
Excerpt: "We have had too many wild fires in recent years, and the cost to taxpayers and insurance companies have reached into the billions of dollars. I believe we can reduce these costs and save homes, properties, and businesses and the forest from destruction by returning to thinning out and maintaining our forests."
  • Arizona Jobs
Excerpt: "Arizona, with its year-round excellent weather, should be a great place to relocate any business, but instead, many businesses are leaving the United States and going south to Mexico or over-seas for cheaper labor. I believe we need to create special laws limiting such moves and create positive inducements to keep business here in Arizona and the United States."
