Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Would you (or did you) support the federal "Equality Act" (H.R. 5) creating a protected class for sexual orientation and gender identity be passed into law? N* One should not be able to change there gender identify for their benefit or when it discredits another.
2. Would you (or did you) support the federal “Respect for Marriage Act” (H.R. 8404) which requires states to recognize polygamous marriages? N
3. Should adult citizens be required to pass a background check before buying ammunition? N* If ammunition is desired, it will be obtained legally or illegally. Additional measures will only impact responsible, law abiding induvials.
4. Would you (or did you) support a federal law (H.R. 8296) removing nearly all restrictions on abortion procedures throughout pregnancy? N
5. Should the federal government require public district and charter schools to allow biological boys in girls’ bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers, and on female-only sports teams as a condition to receive federal education funding? N* Those that practice this should be ineligible to receive federal funding and grants.
6. Would you support securing the border by blocking crossings from undocumented migrants? Y
7. Would you support federal judges who apply the original text of the U.S. Constitution according to the framers’ original intent, rather than interpreting it in light of current times? Y
8. Would you support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring Congress to balance the federal budget every year? Y
9. Would you (or did you) support a law (H.R. 1) requiring the federal government to take over local and state election processes? N* Voter ID should be required off all citizens. Possibly make election day a federal holiday etc.
10. Would you support the filibuster rule that requires 60 votes in the U.S. Senate to pass most legislation? Y* I believe the filibuster is a critical part of what the framers had in mind. There may be minor exceptions here and there, but 60% should be required most of the time.
