Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Gruenhagen's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Right to Life

  • Excerpt: "The most basic and fundamental right which comes from God is the right to life. I am pro life from conception to natural death. When a nation aborts 50 million of its own children it is not only morally reprehensible, but also leads to severe economic consequences."

Jobs & Taxes

  • Excerpt: "High taxes and government regulations make it difficult for MN businesses to prosper, create jobs and compete globally."

Healthcare Reform

  • Excerpt: "I oppose Obama-care, which increases premiums and will lead to rationed healthcare. It must be repealed and replaced with true healthcare reform."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "We need to protect the environment, however I would oppose any form of a Cap and Trade scheme, which if implemented will only drive up energy costs for our families and businesses and will do nothing to protect the environment."

Energy

  • Excerpt: "We must build new nuclear power plants and utilize clean coal technology, along with expanded use of natural gas. Our country has the resources to become energy independent."
