Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • The Role of a Congressional Representative
Excerpt: "I believe our forefathers, when they created our government, wanted Congressional Representatives to speak for the people in their District. A Congressional Representative must be independent and exercise good judgment in voting for the legislation that comes before Congress. That means at times voting against their own political party leaders and resisting the influence of special interests."
  • Taxes and Discrimination Against the Middle Class
Excerpt: "Over the last 25 years, Congress at the behest of Wall Street has shifted the tax burden from people who make their income from investments to the working men and women of the middle class. First, Congress reduced the tax rate on capital gains to 15% no matter how much income is earned. Then, Congress, as part of the Bush tax cuts, reduced the tax on dividends to 15%. "
  • Social Security
Excerpt: "One of my highest priorities is saving Social Security as we know it today. Social Security as originally created was properly funded to last into the foreseeable future. However, Congressional borrowing from the Social Security Trust Fund and the aging population has put pressure on the ability of the fund to pay benefits."
  • Term Limits
Excerpt: "I believe that our Congressional Representatives should not be career politicians that clog up progress in Washington. Members of Congress should represent the people of their District, but when they stay too long, they get comfortable and stop listening. I believe that 4 two-year terms (8 years total) should be the limit and I pledge not to stay in Congress any longer than that."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "The Northern Counties in District 1 receive far less than the national average for Federal spending. This spending includes all Federal payments that end up in the District including money for education, veterans, and family farms. We have in the District a persistent unemployment rate that far exceeds the national average and I believe there is a direct correlation between the high unemployment rate and the fact that the District does not get back its fair share of our tax dollars."
