General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

Right now our government is not working. We have one side against the other with no compromise in sight. We need to be able to use ideas from both side and not have to fight over them. I am a person who is willing to work with both sides to make sure that the American people and those that live in the district have a voice in what is going on in Washington DC. Right now I feel that there is not fair representation of those that are most in need in our country, the middle class. We have jobs being lost, homes being foreclosed on and people being put out on the street just because they are unable to find work. It isn't because they don't want to work it is because there is no work for them to be found. We need policies in place that promote job

Reasons & Objectives
Why I Am Running for Public Office

In November of 2011 I was watching C-Span as they were debating a bill that would extend help to those looking for work and to help create jobs and the thing that riled me up the most was the fact that the Republican representatives were saying that nothing would go through the House at all unless they had the Keystone Pipeline on it. While it in itself would create jobs it would be jobs that would have not been wholly for or of Americans and would force Native American Reservations to let the pipeline go through without any regard to their wishes. Just the fact that our elected officials unilaterally decided to hold America hostage made me mad to the point that I could not wait to call the Florida Elections to get my name on the active list

Goals If Elected

The first thing I want to do when elected is to work with the members of Congress to come up with a fair and balanced budget so that we can get our country running properly again.

Once the budget work was done I would then turn my attention to economic programs that have failed. I would introduce legislation to either change them, amend them or to get

Achievements If Elected

I want to start with making sure that the tax loopholes that are allowing our country to be economically bled dry are filled so that we can get our house in order. We need to improve the way that education is done so that everyone has the chance to succeed and that it just not be based on a little box being filled in on a computer test sheet. I will work with both sides of the house to make sure that we get a comprehensive jobs bill in place so that people can get back to work building our country. I will work with those in the House to come up with ways that can make it so that those that were not afforded a good education can still get good jobs that will make them proud to do. If a person is proud of what they are doing then they are going
