Other Information

One of the Republicans who voted for the 2018 Omnibus Spending package on March 22, 2018. The vehicle for the roll call vote was H.R. 1625.

Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Strongly Agree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Strongly Disagree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree

Additional regulations are needed to prevent climate change.

Strongly Disagree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.

Strongly Agree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

It is OK for Congress to exempt itself from compliance with laws applicable to all citizens.

Strongly Disagree

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree

The United States should protect its sovereignty from the United Nations.

Strongly Agree

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

To save the life of the mother and in cases of rape and incest.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

We need to rebuild our military to ensure it remains the strongest fighting force in the world, ready to deploy anywhere a threat arises and equipped to defeat any enemy. We also need to stand strong with Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power absolutely corrupts.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I live to serve His mission everyday.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I have never wavered in my commitment to the American values of faith, freedom, and family. I have consistently voted to cut taxes and spending, strengthen our national security, support our troops and veterans, protect the sanctity of life, and defend religious freedom.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Obamacare has failed to ensure Hoosiers have access to quality, affordable health care, which is why I support replacing it with a patient-centered system that gives states more flexibility and increases consumer choice. I also supported funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program and for community health centers, which provide access to health care but do not perform abortions.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should have a minimal role in our economy. Free markets allow businesses to grow, entrepreneurs to innovate, and workers and families to prosper.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Under the leadership of President Trump, we were able to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which has already started boosted our economy, giving small businesses the confidence to expand, and allowed Hoosiers to keep more of the money they earn.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

With unemployment at near-record lows, we need to work on bringing more able-bodied Americans back into the workforce through commonsense reforms to entitlement programs.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Social security is a sacred commitment we have made to our seniors. We must protect it for those in or near retirement and strengthen it to ensure it is available for future generations. Solutions to Social Security must meet core principles: The system should not be “privatized.” Benefits should be protected. The retirement age should not be raised. And taxes should not be increased.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

As a lifelong Hoosier, born and raised in South Bend, I have spent my life serving others. After my husband Dean and I returned from living in Romania for four years as missionaries, I decided to run for office to serve my fellow Hoosiers in the Indiana Statehouse. Now I serve 2nd District Hoosiers in Congress.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

It is an honor to represent you, and I am committed to fighting for our shared Hoosier values and making sure you always have a voice in Congress.
