Fight to repeal Obamacare & its unconstitutional mandates

I will fight for repealing Obamacare if elected to the US Senate. The reason small business is not hiring is a direct result of Obamacare. The Pennsylvania worker is seeing their hours and wage reduced as the tax burdens increase for businesses across the state. Moreover, Pennsylvania families are being forced to pay higher and higher healthcare premiums instead of deciding for themselves how their income should be used. Americans should have the freedom to make their own choices. Part of my economic strategy is to promote Pennsylvania small business; therefore, the burden of Obamacare must be lifted. Small business growth is the key to Pennsylvania's economic prosperity, so every Federal legislation that impedes small business must be eliminated.

I do not believe in unconstitutional Federal mandates such as Obamacare. Specifically, Obamacare has tried to force businesses like Hobby Lobby and many Pennsylvania businesses to violate their morals or be forced to pay damaging fines.

Overhaul mental health; don't treat them like criminals

As the son of a social worker, I know that the mental health system is broken and needs a complete overhaul. I will work towards reducing mental health stigma and providing the mentally ill with the treatment they need. Moreover, I will create and pass legislation that treats people suffering with mental illness as human beings and not criminals.
