Campaign themes


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

  • Jobs and the Economic Growth
Excerpt: "This is one of my top priorities. We must return to the free-market principles that made our economy the envy of the world and provided prosperity for our families. I support lowering tax rates and reducing regulations so individuals and companies can once again expand and create new jobs."
  • Energy Security
Excerpt: "Developing our abundant domestic oil, natural gas, and coal deposits has become an issue of economic security. We can no longer afford to ship billions of dollars overseas to purchase oil from countries that are not always friends to the U.S. Exploring and drilling for energy right here in America would immediately put Americans back to work in good paying jobs and lower our trade deficit"
  • Support our Troops and Veterans
Excerpt: "As the mother of a USMC daughter, the brave men and women in the U.S. Military hold a special place in my heart. I will always support our troops by making sure they have the best equipment and our complete backing while they are fighting to protect freedom."
  • Health Care Reform
Excerpt: We have great health care but the cost of care and insurance coverage are too high. We need real reforms that increase competition and more customer choice. I support the purchase of insurance across state lines, improving the options for personal health savings accounts, personal tax deductions for the cost of health care premiums, and tort reform to address the hidden cost of defensive medicine.""
  • Obamacare
Excerpt: "When elected, I will make it one of my priorities to push for the repeal of Obamacare in the next Congressional session. We do not need Socialized medicine we must end the creation of more bureaucracy and let the free market and consumers decide what type of healthcare they want or need."
