Rick Berg on Principles & Values

 


Member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus

Rick Berg is a member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus. The caucus' self-description on the House of Representatives website:
    Throughout the more than 200-year history of our nation, prayer has played a vital role in strengthening the fabric of our society. The purposes of the Congressional Prayer Caucus are to:
  1. recognize the vital role that prayer by individuals of all faiths has played in uniting us as a people and in making us a more generous and more forgiving people;
  2. collect, exchange, and disseminate information about prayer as a fundamental and enduring feature of American life;
  3. use the legislative process--both through sponsorship of affirmative legislation and through opposition to detrimental legislation--to assist the nation and its people in continuing to draw upon and benefit from this essential source of our strength and well-being.
Members also work together to preserve the presence of religion, faith, and morality in the marketplace of ideas.

Declined to debate GOP opponent at two Tea Party debates

Rick Berg won the GOP endorsement for Senate on March 31. Just days before the convention, his opponent, Duane Sand, announced he was going straight to the primary. Sand said he's disappointed that Berg bypassed two tea party-sponsored debates earlier this year. "If you won't debate me, how are you going to debate and defeat Heidi Heitkamp?" Sand asked. Berg's campaign cited scheduling conflicts as the reason for not taking part in the debates, held Jan. 20 in Bismarck and Feb. 13 in Fargo.

To get country back on track, change the Senate

Berg said federal regulations on industry need to be stripped away and a more business-friendly climate is needed. He said his Republican House colleagues have tried to do so, but have been stymied by inaction by Senate Democrats.

"The Senate's not passing a budget, the Senate hasn't taken up bills passed by the House. To get the country back on track, we've got to change the Senate," Berg said.
