Political positions

Campaign themes

2012

On his site, Pallone listed his positions on 12 separate issues, but he has campaigned largely on environmental issues since his first congressional bid in 1988 in New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District.[25] In 2012, he also focused on the economy and job creation.[26]

  • Economy and jobs: "Congressman Pallone supports the Democrats' ‘Make it in America’ agenda, which does more to encourage businesses to make products in the U.S. and supports investments in important areas like education and clean energy innovation."[27]
  • Education: "Congressman Pallone believes local schools and teachers must be provided with adequate resources and compensation, and a strong emphasis must be placed on hiring and retaining highly trained and talented teaching professionals."[28]
  • Energy and Gas Prices: "Middle class families are doing everything they can to cope with high gas and energy prices and tightening budgets, and that’s why Congressman Pallone advocates an all-of-the-above strategy that expands production of American energy resources. The most critical aspect of this agenda is to incentivize clean, renewable energy such as solar and wind that is manufactured here in America."[29]
  • Environment: "It has always been a top priority of Congressman Pallone’s to protect the water and air and clean up communities so New Jersey residents can lead healthy lives in the areas that they live and work."[30]
  • Equality: "Congressman Pallone continues to fight for policies that reflect our American ideals of equality, fairness and justice, and works to ensure all Americans, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity, are entitled to the same protections under the law."[31]
  • Fisheries: "Congressman Pallone believes that a strong fishing industry is vital to achieving a strong economy in the Sixth District."[32]
  • Foreign Affairs and Defense: "Keeping the country safe is of the utmost importance to Congressman Pallone. He takes seriously his job to protect and defend our nation, and to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the resources and support they deserve."[33]
  • Healthcare: "As the Ranking Member of the Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Health, Congressman Pallone believes that all Americans should have access to high-quality, affordable health care and fights for legislation that will help achieve these goals. The Affordable Care Act, or the health care reform law, is a major step towards expanding coverage, lowering health care costs and protecting patients from insurance company abuses. In addition, Congressman Pallone uses his leadership role on the Health Subcommittee to bring drugs to market faster, make our food system safer, and support work that will advance public health. He is particularly passionate about efforts to improve health outcomes for children."[34]
  • Housing: "Congressman Pallone supports the federal government taking necessary steps to give homeowners the tools they need to get back on their feet and modify home loans to avoid foreclosure."[35]
  • Labor: "Congressman Pallone stands with Middle Class families in New Jersey that are working to fight for better wages, benefits and conditions at their places of employment. His highest priority is to create jobs while advancing a ‘Make It In America’ agenda to stop the flow of jobs overseas."[36]
  • New Jersey Specific Issues: "Congressman Pallone’s most important job is to serve the people of the Sixth Congressional District and stand up for the issues that New Jersey residents care about. He regularly submits requests for federal funding for projects in the district, as well as fights for issues and legislation that will benefit the district."[37]
  • Seniors: "The economic struggles of the past few years have been particularly hard on seniors, many of whom live on fixed incomes. Congressman Pallone is committed to protecting the programs that seniors rely on, like Medicare and Social Security, while also making them stronger and more secure."[38]
  • Veterans: "Congressman Pallone supports adequate funding for veterans programs to provide the men and women that fought for our country the support they need to stay healthy, get an education and find a good job."[39]

Pallone ran for, and won, re-election in 2012.[43] He was unchallenged in the Democratic primary and faced Republican Anna Little in the November general election.[44]

Despite the new shape of New Jersey's 6th Congressional District, this year's race strongly resembles the match-up two years ago between Republican Anna Little and Democratic incumbent Pallone. In the redistricting, the 6th District was shifted to the east, but maintained its political demographics: the ratio of registered Democrats to Republicans is nearly 3 to 1. Despite tea-party support, Little lost to Pallone by 11 points in 2010.[45]

Pallone hoped to continue his work on environmental issues, after re-election.[46]
