Campaign themes


Orswell's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "Today's most important issue is jobs. We all need a job to provide for the necessities and comforts of life. A job is one of the first decisions we consider as a child, as people ask, "what are you going to do when you grow up?""
  • Taxes
Excerpt: "No matter how we try to avoid it, taxes are a part of our lives. Taxes create the revenue for our government to operate. And as the government continues to grow and expand, more revenue or tax dollars are required to operate. First of all, we must stop the expansion and limit our government to providing us only with the services we need, not the services what we want."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "The National Health Care System, enacted in 2010, was created to provide affordable health care for every American. I agree with the intent of the program, but as a former FBI Agent who worked government fraud and abuse cases, I believe the current program will cost American taxpayers billions of dollars in fraud and abuse, wasting valuable resources for Americans needing professional healthcare."
  • Congressional Salaries
Excerpt: "Members of the House of Representatives currently receive an annual salary of $174,000. In addition, they receive health insurance, retirement benefits and paid time off."
  • Corporate Influence on Elections
Excerpt: "The old expression "money talks" certainly rings true when it comes to determining the results of an election. According to an article posted on after the 2008 elections, 93 percent of the House of Representative races were won by candidates who spent the most money. "
