Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Reviving the Economy and Putting Citizens Back to Work
Excerpt: "As an accredited financial professional, I have learned the best economic principles on how to make and save money. Small businesses and everyday workers are the vibrant force that makes the world turn, thus our country’s most important asset is the preservation of these businesses and individuals. "
  • Medicare and Social Security
Excerpt: "The biggest challenge to balancing the budget is Medicare and Social Security. Many “career politicians” have placed these major programs that millions of Americans, especially our senior citizens, depend on first on the chopping board. "
  • Education
Excerpt: "Our children are the key to preserving the future of America. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders; to keep up in this increasingly global community, education needs to be a priority that is never compromised. Teachers need jobs, and they are the lifeblood of the educational system."
  • International Affairs
Excerpt: "As an immigrant to this great nation, I have spent a multitude of years around the world. My foreign experience has provided me with the insight that the amount of money we spend on foreign aid is increasingly wasted."
