To cut taxes, we must hold the line on government spending. Balanced budgets are the key to Nebraska’s economic prosperity, and we have to streamline programs and cut waste to fully fund our priorities: jobs, infrastructure, and education.
I am proud to stand with taxpayers against Obamacare, but the work continues. Nebraskans are suffering the consequences of the law – from rising healthcare costs to forced purchases of products which violate our religious beliefs to federal bureaucrats involved in our personal health information. As Governor, I will continue to challenge Obamacare and protect Nebraskans from its disastrous consequences.
President Obama’s EPA continues to threaten Nebraska agriculture through unnecessary interference and regulation. I have fought back and challenged EPA more than 30 times to protect our agricultural producers and to keep energy prices affordable for Nebraska families, and I will continue to fight the EPA as Governor.
Maintaining an environment that enables our farmers and ranchers to thrive is a top priority. Reducing property taxes and investing in Nebraska’s infrastructure are important means to ensure that Nebraska agriculture continues on the path to success.
And I oppose amnesty for illegal immigrants. Period.
Our country was built on legal immigration. My ancestors came to Nebraska for a better life in the 1800s – but they did it the right way. I don’t believe it is cruel to expect people who come here to follow the law.
As a lifelong hunter and lifetime endowment member of the NRA, I’m a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. I’m proud to have consistently earned an A+ rating for my support of the NRA, and as Attorney General, I’ve defended conceal carry and handgun rights in court.
Among the terrible consequences of Obamacare is the law’s requirement that health insurance policies provide abortion products for free. This attempt by the Obama Administration to force Nebraskans of faith to pay for other people’s abortions is outrageous and unconstitutional. I led a coalition of states and religious institutions to stop this mandate and continue to fight it at the U.S. Supreme Court.
As Governor, I will continue to fight to make sure Nebraskans of faith are not forced to compromise their religious beliefs in order to comply with Obamacare requirements.
