Issues

     

Taxes
State taxes 5%. Federal taxes 28-33%. Property taxes averaging $10K. FICA and Medicare taxes 9% and an additional 9% for self-employed. Sales tax at 7%. Car insurance highest in region.

Note to democrats: Its not that we don't want to give more help to the lower income people -- we just can't anymore.

When you are in a plane and it depressurizes, you put the oxygen mask on yourself first, so that you can then help the children. It's not going to help anyone if we are all dead.

 

U.S. Constitution
The constitution is the foundation of the United States of America.

Liberal judicial interpretations should be illegal. If Congress makes a law, it is the voice of the people. In IRAN, there the religious leaders have the role of reviewing the actions of the Iranian Congress. We are not living in IRAN. Are we?

 

Terrorism
Terrorism is a war. It's going to last a long time. It's outrageous to bring war criminals into the civilian court system. They need to be interrogated (harshly if necessary) to stop future terrorist attacks.

Tea Party NJ trusts our military more than our legal (political) system.

 

Big Government
How is it that the federal government has 330,000 individuals that make more than $100,000 a year. So if we get a cute little bureaucratic couple who meet on the job, they earn $200,000? I worked for the government for a while, and I can tell you, that there is no innovation in government. It's a good place to work if you want security, but the US has been the world leader in business not because of people sitting behind desks and reviewing forms.

 
     
State Education
Why are we paying for illegal immigrants to go to higher education. Come one we are broke. Where is this money coming from.
 
Regulations and Restrictions
Do you know the story about an American solar energy inventory who came up with an idea and wanted to setup a manufacturing facility in the US. It became obvious that setting up a factory would take over two years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. He decided to outsource the entire operation to India. The plant was setup and operational in 3 months.
 

Transparency and Respect

American citizens are not children. When a politician says something, they better follow-through. Especially if its video taped. C-SPAN, C-SPAN, C-SPAN.

On top of that, when an issue as large as health care is being vetted with five people from one group in a closed room. That is not a healthy political process.


 

Health Care
We all agree that health care reform is necessary. Let start with malpractice reform. Not a complete takeover by the government.

And if the big issue is coverage of pre-existing conditions, then lets address that -- with a law. If that increases costs, then open up markets across state lines.
