Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Healthcare Reform
Excerpt: "Unfortunately, Dianne Feinstein voted to approve President Obama’s healthcare law, commonly referred to as Obamacare, despite the fact that more than half of Americans opposed the law. The Obama healthcare law was 2091 pages as passed by Congress, but federal agencies, under President Obama’s direction are writing tens of thousands of new pages of regulations under the authority granted by the law."
  • Reforming our Tax Code so America can Prosper
Excerpt: "Reforming our Tax Code so America can Prosper:

It’s time for leadership that encourages job creation and protects our American tradition of innovation, creativity and opportunity. "

  • An End to Career Politicians
Excerpt: "The average member of Congress in a leadership position has served in office for twenty-seven years, while on average, members of Congress serve just ten years. Congress is an institution dominated by career politicians, with little opportunity for the citizen legislator to make a real difference."
  • Eliminating Red-Tape and Reforming job-killing Regulations
Excerpt: "We must ensure that regulations and policies encourage job creation and continue our American tradition of supporting innovation, creativity and investment while balancing our social and environmental needs. Presently, Congress has no mechanism to evaluate and consider the impact on job creation and our economy that new regulations will have."
  • Government Spending
Excerpt: "Excessive government spending is destroying America. Even as unsound federal laws distorted lending rules and destabilized our once solid housing market, excessive government spending has caused dire concern about hyper-inflation of our currency and uncertainty in the American economy."
