Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Formica's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • The Economy
Excerpt: "It’s time we look at where we are as a country and take immediate action to guarantee that the “American Dream” will be available for every generation of future Americans. We need to be able to leave our kids a truly “United” States of America that is safe and financially secure."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I am an independent leader, who if sent to Washington, will fight to ensure that Americans can have access to affordable and quality healthcare through a free-market approach. The legislation that was passed by Congressman Joe Courtney, a Democratic Congress and the Obama Administration is an attack on individual liberty and freedom, adding taxes; it does not address the true problems that must be solved in the years ahead."
  • National Defense
Excerpt: "As the premier country in the world we have to come from a position of strength. I support a strong national defense and I support all of our families who have family members defending our country."
