“P” Is for Priorities
As citizens, few of us have time to follow the daily activities of Government. We rely on the representatives we elect to exercise good judgment and stewardship. The character of the individual comes under immediate attack from special interest and the corrupting influence of ambition and power. Our best judge of elected officials performance is how they set priorities.
Consider Amendment #10 to the National Defense Authorization Act, https://www.congress.gov/amendment/115th-congress/house-amendment/183/text. From Congress.GOV website, “prohibit funds for medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care under chapter 55 of title 10, U.S. code.” This amendment failed. Twenty-four Republicans voted with the Democrats to defeat this amendment. Congressman Mike Coffman is one of the twenty-four.
Consider the proposed tax reform bill coming from the Republican-controlled House. http://thehill.com/policy/finance/358684-conservatives-hit-gop-tax-bill-for-nixing-adoption-credit. This proposal “would eliminate a tax credit for adoptive parents.” For a Party that differentiates itself as being pro-life, this is an example of misplaced priorities.
Do you believe that scarce financial resources should be used to provide elective medical treatment for members of the military to assist in gender re-assignment?
Do you believe that children in foster homes and the families who adopt those children, and children adopted through agencies and the legal process should lose the existing tax credit under the proposed tax reform act in the House of Representatives?
My priority will focus on the children. We must find a way to make the adoptive process less costly and less lengthy. Eliminating the high cost of adoption can be an alternative to a woman considering abortion.
I will side with life. Please support my candidacy.https://www.congress.gov/amendment/115th-congress/house-amendment/183/text
