Moulton's website highlighted the following campaign themes:<ref>[http://www.sethmoulton.com/issues ''Seth Moulton for Congress'', "Issues," accessed February 4, 2015]</ref>
 +
*'''ISIS
 +
:Excerpt: "ISIS presents a clear threat to American interests and American national security. They have killed Americans abroad, and made clear their desire to attack Americans here at home. ISIS is an evil organization and our policy should be to defeat them. However, that does not mean we should use American ground troops."
 +
*'''Veterans
 +
:Excerpt: "Congress is failing our veterans. As a veteran myself, I see it firsthand. We have never had fewer veterans in Congress in our nation’s history, so it’s not surprising that so few Members of Congress understand the urgency of the problem. We can’t solve these problems overnight, but with the right leadership we can begin to fix the system and give veterans the opportunities they have earned."
 +
*'''Education
 +
:Excerpt: "Like millions of Americans, I'm still paying student loan bills every month. I understand firsthand the challenges that come with college debt. I will work to lower both student loan interest rates and tuition costs for today’s college students, so the next generation is not burdened by a mountain of college loan debt."
 +
*'''Gun Violence
 +
:Excerpt: "American gun policy is firmly on the wrong track. Of the 109 firearm laws passed in state legislatures in the year following the Newtown shooting, 70 of the new laws eased restrictions on gun usage and availability."
 +
*'''Social Security and Medicare
 +
:Excerpt: "Social Security is one of our greatest achievements of the last century, and a contract between generations that we must honor. However, the current system is threatened because it does not cope with ongoing demographic changes. As our population ages, we need to support those seniors that paid into the system and ensure that future generations also benefit. That's why we need to eliminate the payroll tax cap."
 +
*'''Jobs and the Economy
 +
:Excerpt: "Congress needs to create the economic environment to spur growth and create new jobs. Instead, today’s Congress is standing in the way and standing by—standing in the way of job growth with partisan gridlock and taxes that hurt small businesses, and standing by as the middle class gets squeezed."
 +
*'''Healthcare
 +
:Excerpt: "As someone with experience in health care, I believe better health care is not just a right, but also smart policy—good health care means better lives, stronger communities, and economic innovation. America spends 52% more per capita on health care than any other country in the world, and yet we rank 12th in health care results. Better health care policy should improve both—improving outcomes across the board, for everyone in America, while also reducing costs and inefficiencies."
