====2012====
+
DeLauro's campaign website listed the following issues:<ref>[http://rosadelauro.com/record/ Campaign website, Issues]</ref>
+
 
+
*'''Economy
+
:Excerpt: "Rosa recognizes that true economic recovery requires addressing high unemployment and other immediate crises while investing in the infrastructure and green economy that will create jobs in the long-term. The Jobs Bill and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have helped to restore many good jobs to Connecticut, but Rosa continues to fight to make sure we do not revert back to the practices that created the current economic situation, and to ensure that our government’s economic policy benefits the families and businesses of the Third District."
+
 
+
*'''Healthcare
+
:Excerpt: "After many months of debate and more than half a century of work on the part of many presidents who tried to reform our health care system, our country finally succeeded. The health care reform bill President Obama signed into law fulfills the promise of generations of great leaders who fought to secure quality, affordable health care for all Americans."
+
 
+
*'''Security
+
:Excerpt: "Rosa believes that we must have a strong, coordinated response to threats of terrorism. She supports efforts by the Office of Homeland Security to engage local communities in this response, and has worked with emergency response teams and other community leaders in the Third District to ensure that all Connecticut families are protected."
+
 
+
*'''Consumers
+
:Excerpt: "Rosa has long been an advocate for improved consumer safety. As Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee that deals with these issues, Rosa has made enormous progress in improving food and drug safety and the safety of consumer products. In addition, she has worked to protect Connecticut consumers from the dangerous practices of banks and mortgage lenders in today’s economy."
+
 
+
*'''Energy
+
:Excerpt: "Rosa believes that an environmentally sound economy can also be a robust economy. That is why she is committed to increasing access to alternative energy sources and more efficient cars and to increasing opportunities for green job creation within the state of Connecticut. In addition, Rosa believes that as stewards of this country for our children and grandchildren, we have an obligation to protect our valuable natural resources."
