ELECTIONS ARE COMING: GOP WAR ON WOMEN? NO!…WOMEN WARRIORS
Heather Ann Wilson is a former Republican member of the United States House of Representatives representing New Mexico’s 1st congressional district from 1998 to 2009. She is the first female military veteran elected to a full term in Congress. She is running for the Senate.
I am running for the Senate because I trust people more than I trust government to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. But that is not what we have today with Obamacare. Obamacare does nothing to control the spiraling cost of care. It raises taxes, cuts Medicare, costs more, and gives people less control over their health care decisions.
For the first time in American history, every citizen will be required to purchase a government approved product. If Washington can mandate how people must spend their money, there is no limit to government power. The law is unconstitutional and if it is not thrown out by the Supreme Court, I will fight to make sure it is repealed and replaced.
The first and most important responsibility of the federal government is to provide for the common defense. A strong military is the best way to keep the peace. Our young men and women in the military should only be sent into harm’s way to protect America’s vital national interests, with clear missions, and with the force necessary to win and come home again.
Three generations of my family have served in uniform. I have spent my adult life serving to protect our country and I will continue to do so in the Senate.
