Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Rogers's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Arizona Values
Excerpt: "I am 100% Pro-life and believe that life begins at conception and should only end in a natural death. I also am a firm believer in the individual rights guaranteed in the 2nd Amendment to our Constitution."
  • Get Americans Working Again
Excerpt: "As a small business owner and the only candidate in the 9th District race that owns, operates and created her own business inside the District, I will fight in Congress to restore confidence and certainty to private sector businesses and, especially small businesses, by getting out of the way and passing conservative legislation in Congress to get our economy back on track."
  • Fiscal Responsibility
Excerpt: "I believe that our country is at a critical crossroad. Choices we make in the November election will determine whether we continue down a path of failed policies that imperil our future or face the reality of the tough challenges ahead and begin to restore America’s greatness."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Empower students and parents with more flexibility in how they use education dollars. Local solutions are needed for local shortcomings, and the federal government should recognize that local communities, parents and schools know what’s best for their children."
  • Secure Borders
Excerpt: "In Congress, I will not stop until we secure the border. A country cannot endure if it does not protect itself. We need to build the fence, secure the border, and enforce the law. Our porous border is an abomination."
