Campaign themes

2012

Saine's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & The Economy

  • Excerpt:"It is Jason’s belief that government’s role in a free enterprise system should be limited and should foster an environment where individual initiative and innovation are rewarded, not discouraged. Excessive regulation and taxation are contradictive to a free society."

Life

  • Excerpt:"Jason is unequivocally Pro-Life and will fight for legislation which protects life from conception until natural death."

Taxes & Spending

  • Excerpt:"Jason believes that we must develop a modern tax code that will better conform to our changing economy & promote income growth, business investment & make our economy more diverse. We can do this by making the tax code simpler, more transparent and easier to understand and administer."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Jason believes in school choice and that competition is the best way to improve education performance. To that point, fair comparisons must be made and when we find innovations in one area, we must quickly implement those advances throughout our public schools."
