15. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.
We should allow private sector providers to sell policies across state borders to bring competition to the 35 U S health insurance companies, keep prices low and offer more plans. Medicare, Medicaid and the ACA must be consolidated. We must get rid of the Independent Payment Advisory Board(IPAB)which ultimately would ration care for Medicare patients. Congress needs to focus on creating more jobs. The 2012 JOBS Act is successful and a way for entrepreneurs to get financing and go public. Congress must continue to reduce business regulations and encourage entrepreneurship and free enterprise. The Dept. of Ed and Common Core need an overhaul so we have an educated work force. First,borders must be ABSOLUTELY secure. Penalties for illegal entry must be in place before we implement a rigorous path to citizenship and Americans will get jobs by enforcing employer sanctions and e-verify. Congress must attach strings to financial aid to Mexico to force Mexico to care for its people.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a sinner saved by the Grace of God. Jesus Christ is Lord and the Word of God guides my daily life. He makes the crooked way straight. I have committed this Congressional race to Him and I am asking him to direct my steps. It is His campaign and He is using me. I try to follow Jesus everyday, knowing His death on the Cross (which we acknowledge today,Good Friday), and his blood, paid for my sins. His forgiveness frees me from the Law and allows me liberty to be me and a new woman in Christ. His death and resurrection give me power to forgive my enemies. He rose from the dead, and He is coming again. He loves me so much. He listens to me and answers my prayers. As an elected official, I am an ambassador for Christ, always seeking ways to represent Him and share Him, with my actions or words.
