Washington has utterly failed to close the border and fix our broken immigration system. Unlike our 24-year incumbent, I will support President Trump’s efforts to build the wall,eliminate the free government incentives that motivate people to migrate here illegally and end sanctuary cities. Already, we are seeing the positive effects of President Trump’s tough actions on immigration, and I will stand shoulder to shoulder with my fellow conservatives to ensure we permanently secure the southern border and never grant amnesty to those here illegally.
Right to Life
Kay Granger has a long career of funding Planned Parenthood and standing publicly with the pro-abortion left. While she’s on record, over and over, as being a “pro-choice Republican,” it’s only at election time when she claims to be pro-life. Chris has long been a supporter of local pro-life efforts in North Texas, and will always vote to protect the unborn, as well as the right to life from conception to natural death.
Spending, Debt & Taxes
In the 24 years she's been in Congress Kay Granger has tripled the size of the federal government and run our national debt up 5X to a dangerous $23 Trillion dollars. We also have a $1 trillion annual budget deficit. The federal government already takes far too much money out of your pockets. By getting our federal budget under control, we can further cut taxes for hard-working Texans and all Americans. Chris will fight to reduce the size of the government and throw out our punishing income tax system, replacing it with a flat tax or the fair tax.
Chris actually passed terms limits on himself as a Mayor Pro Tem and supports the US Term Limits effort. Career politicians in Washington lose all sense of servant leadership and instead seek ways to serve themselves. 24 year incumbent Kay Granger has used her Washington insider status to reward her family, helping her son get rich running Tarrant County’s Panther Island project into the ground, while wasting millions in our tax dollars!
Like never before, law-abiding gun owners are seeing their god-given rights threatened. Chris Putnam will be a leader in defending the 2nd Amendment at every opportunity. DC gun-grabbers like Beto O’Rourke and Nancy Pelosi must get a clear message at the ballot box: the right to keep and bear arms is non-negotiable, and Texans will always defend themselves and their families.
Obamacare and Washington’s repeated attempts to take over our healthcare system are a complete disaster. More government is not the solution to a problem the government has largely created. Congress should repeal Obamacare and free American consumers to pick the level of coverage that is right for them.
