Issues

Campaign themes

According to Stewart's website, his campaign themes include:

  • Medicare: "...implementing free market reforms, the cost of Medicare can be contained while Americans are assured they will have access to quality medical coverage when they enter retirement age."
  • Tax code: "The current tax code is unjustifiably complex and unfair. It is designed to benefit those who have the money to pay lawyers and accountants and to disadvantage those who are trying to play by the rules."
  • Immigration: "Because of this failure, illegal immigration has become a national security threat."[3]
