Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Radel's campaign website lists the following priorities:[4]

  • Foster an environment for job creation
Excerpt: "Before, we can deal with spending, Trey believes we need to grow our economy. Business owners, both small and large, will tell you they spend far too much time working for the federal government, and not themselves. Whether it is a complicated tax code or dealing with heavy-handed government regulations, our government today inhibits business."
  • Pay down the national debt
Excerpt: "Having run a business, Trey believes that there is a simple economic rule that Washington needs to abide by: don’t spend more money than you take in. Both Republicans and Democrats have been far too comfortable mortgaging away our children’s future. Trey wants to put a stop to this now."
  • Repeal Obamacare and End Other Job-Killing Regulations
Excerpt: "Our country has prided itself on freedom and liberty. Regulations like Obamacare not only place severe restrictions on our freedom and choice but also threaten the economic livelihood of this country. Obamacare in particular essentially forces individuals to buy a private product just because they are American."
