Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Joel Marchese

Candidate for
United States Representative; District 53

This information is provided by the candidate

I'm a Constitutional Conservative, who is endorsed by the California Republican Assembly (CRA). I believe that less government means better government. I also remain committed to lowering taxes, building and funding trade schools, and a strong national defense and energy independence policy.

Our nation's $17 trillion debt continues to spiral out of control. The Affordable Health Care Act has caused millions of people to lose their coverage, and health care premiums are going up, not down. As for our economy--with all its great potential, it remains at levels far below growth rates seen in the 1980s and 1990s.

So, why run? Because, I want to be able to look my children in the eyes and tell them that America is a country worth fighting for, and that it will always remain so. It is because of these challenges that a teacher like me would even consider running for office. Most of all, It is because the cost of doing nothing far exceeds the sacrifice it will take to become your new congressional representative.

We expect and deserve better leadership from our government, one that is rooted in common sense but tempered with compassion for those less fortunate. It is unconscionable to continue with current spending levels without the necessary reforms that will guarantee a safety net for future generations without breaking the bank. Recognizing this, I think you'll agree that it's time for smart, responsible leadership.

I'd be honored to serve as your voice in the United States Congress. Together, we can take on serious problems like fixing the country's debt crisis, building a stronger economy, and securing a better future for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren.
