After Reading Paul Gosar’s Questions and Answers

 


 

Issue Positions

For Presidential and Congressional candidates who refuse to provide voters with their positions, A very respectable company that I trust a lot has researched their public records to determine their likely responses. These issue positions are from 2016.

 


Abortion

Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?     Pro-Life

  • “I have cosponsored multiple pieces of legislation to protect life and to ensure that Obamacare and future laws do not allow any taxpayer funds to be used to abort innocent human life.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • Rated 100% by National Right to Life Committee.
  • “As a conservative Republican, a medical provider, and a father, I strongly support the sanctity of human life. Nothing is more precious. I believe that life begins at conception. For my efforts in Congress, I have a 100% lifetime rating from the National Right to Life Committee.”
  • “I am a cosponsor of H.R.36, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, introduced by my friend and fellow Arizonan Trent Franks. This bill prohibits late term abortions for unborn babies after 20 weeks post-fertilization. I believe that life begins at conception, and this legislation represents a vital step towards eliminating abortions altogether.” (gosar.house.gov)

Budget

Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?    Dose Not Support
  • “I will not vote to increase taxes. I stand firm in my conviction that you are the best person to determine how to spend your hard-earned money.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • “American families have to live within a budget and within their means. So should the federal government. Yet many government officials want to raise taxes to help pay for more unnecessary programs that may be nice, but that our nation cannot afford. Studies have shown that most American families adapt to trying fiscal times by tightening their belts and making their lives work by saving more and spending less. It is beyond comprehension that the federal government would not do the same.”
  • “We currently owe over $22 trillion, a record amount. As others have pointed out, I share the view that our country does not have a revenue problem (the Treasury currently collects $2.5 trillion in taxes), but we have a serious spending problem. At the current pace, our national debt will exceed the size of our economy in less than two years.” (gosar.house.gov)

Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?    Unknown Position

  • “This is very important. We could improve the lives of millions of seniors by (1) not taxing social security benefits and (2) exempting seniors from local property taxes. Just when you think you own your house another big tax bill arrives. @FreedomWorks @pye.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 4% by Alliance for Retired Americans (2019 Lifetime).
  • “America has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. While the United States is producing record federal revenue, Congress has failed to pass balanced budgets. If we do not change our course, we will be responsible for one of the worse catastrophes this nation has ever experienced: the crash of the American economy and the demise of a superpower.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “The Medicare Part D modernization plan proposed by the Trump Administration would be a strong step toward addressing this problem, significantly lowering patients’ out-of-pocket expenses and promoting a more competitive marketplace for prescription drugs. It would allow patients to take advantage of discounted drug prices at the point-of-sale at the pharmacy counter, rather than having to foot the bill for an artificially high cost. The proposed reform takes the benefits of competition and negotiating directly to Americans and no longer forces them to pay the bill for market distortions on prescription drugs.”

Campaign Finance

Campaign Finance: Do you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?     Dose Not Support
  • Rated 0% by Common Cause.
  • “Infringes upon the First Amendment, effectively choosing what speech qualifies as free speech and which Americans are afforded access to the Constitutionally provided privilege of free speech.”
  • “The Democrats bill is a direct attack on our country’s elections. It undermines free speech, it lines the pockets of politicians with taxpayer dollars and ultimately chips away at the core of our democracy. I firmly stand against the Democrats efforts to rig elections.”

Crimes

Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?    Unknown Position

  • “Politicians shouldn’t draft police techniques as most have “never had to tackle a criminal high on PCP and any reforms should include a ban on public sector labor unions, which have made it difficult to fire rogue officers who commit murder.” (twitter.com)

Defense

Defense: Do you support increasing defense spending?       Unknown Position

  • “YPG is one of the largest military installations in the country and is one of the premier sites for testing military equipment. MCAS Yuma is an important aviation training base specializing in air-to-ground aviation training for U.S. and NATO forces. These facilities are critical to our local economy and our nation’s national security. I am committed to protecting their missions by providing both the bases and their personnel the resources necessary to help defend our country.”
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “America’s national security is of utmost importance. As a constitutionalist, I believe that providing for our nation’s common defense is the core responsibility of the federal government. I am a strong supporter of our troops and have consistently voted to provide them with the resources they need to accomplish their missions.”
  • “Maintaining national security is one of the federal government’s primary responsibilities under the Constitution. We must ensure the people of the United States are protected by providing for our common defense. But it’s also important that we not forget our national debt of more than $22 trillion. Congress needs to work with the Pentagon to identify wasteful and duplicative programs that can be consolidated or removed in order to ensure our defense budget is being spent responsibly. My support for a strong national defense earned me a 100% from the American Security Council.” (drpaulgosar.com)

Economy

Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?     Unknown Position

  • “America has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. While the United States is producing record federal revenue, Congress has failed to pass balanced budgets. If we do not change our course, we will be responsible for one of the worse catastrophes this nation has ever experienced: the crash of the American economy and the demise of a superpower.”
  • “One of the core functions of each state, and the Federal Government, is creating the infrastructure necessary to conduct commerce, trade and allow general transportation. I strongly support maintaining, modernizing and expanding America’s transportation system and feel that work is critical to our country’s long-term productivity and economic competitiveness.”
  • “Throughout my time in Congress, I have been a strong supporter of Arizona transportation initiatives. I have worked with local cities, towns, counties, and tribal governments to advocate on behalf of rural Arizona projects. I have fought to ensure federal transportation programs give rural proposals a fair shot in the competitive process. I was instrumental in the authorization of the future I-11 corridor project, the critical first step of the major economic development project that will connect Phoenix and Las Vegas, the two largest cities in the nation not linked by an interstate highway.”
  • “Economic growth originates from the hard-working entrepreneurial spirit of the American people and the best thing we can do to reignite job growth in this country is to get the federal government out of the way. My support for pro-growth policies has earned me a 100% from the National Federation of Independent Business, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council, and the Campaign for Working Families.” (drpaulgosar.com)

Economy: Do you support lowering corporate taxes as a means of promoting economic growth?    Supports

  • Voted in favor of HR 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • “Paul believes that the government doesn’t create jobs and that one of the best things Congress can do is get big government out of the way by reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens and unshackling job creators.”
  • “One of the signature accomplishments of the Trump Administration is federal tax reform. In addition to providing economic stimulus that has resulted in the fast economic growth we’ve seen in a generation, it has allowed small businesses to make capital investments that have helped create new jobs and brought unemployment to historic lows. I’ve signed Americans for Tax Reform’s Taxpayer Protection Pledge and earned a 100% from Americans for Prosperity, 92% from the National Tax Limitation Committee, 90% from the National Taxpayers Union.” (drpaulgosar.com)

Economy: Do you support providing financial relief to businesses AND/OR corporations negatively impacted by the state of national emergency for COVID-19?     Supports

  • “Back in DC. Washing my hands. The $2 trillion rescue package has some straight up BS inserted by Democrats. I’m voting for it anyways because there is real aid needed now by employees, businesses, hospitals and schools.” (twitter.com)
  • “The bipartisan relief package is far from perfect, but it will immediately help Arizona’s hard-working employees, families, small businesses, and it will provide certainty to our economic future. After reviewing this legislation, I will support its passage. There is far more good in the package for people who desperately need help. I will hold my nose as I vote.” (www.facebook.com)

Education

Education: Do you support requiring states to adopt federal education standards?      Dose Not Support

  • “Common Core has led to boredom and complacency in classrooms throughout the country, shackling students and teachers as most days are now spent teaching to standardized tests. Washington must stop baiting states with grant money in order to circumvent federal law and implement national curriculum standards.”
  • “Our Founders did not enumerate a federal government power over education and the establishment of a national curriculum has been illegal since 1965 when the federal government first attempted to regulate and finance education. In fact, the federal government’s involvement in education has failed to improve America’s standing in the world. As such, it is the purview of the states, parents and local school boards to handle such matters–not bureaucrats in Washington D.C.”
  • Rated 0% by National Education Association.
  • “We need to thoroughly reexamine how we administer education in America. It is far past time that we replace our current system with one that empowers educators, parents, school boards and local communities; this is the only constitutional way to deliver these services. To that end, I will continue to do everything in my power to return education maters to the local level.”

Energy

Energy: Do you support government funding for the development of renewable energy (e.g. solar, wind, geo-thermal)?   Dose Not Support

  • “I believe in free market economics. The federal government is not the reason the United States is the world’s largest economic power. Rather, the government is merely the beneficiary of our free market system.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • “The Public Land Renewable Energy Development Act increases renewable energy on public lands, cuts red tape, and boosts revenues to local economies, all while increasing access for sportsmen and reducing the deficit.” (twitter.com)
  • “The only responsible energy policy is one that is truly all-of-the-above. America is rich with energy resources, and developing them will create jobs, strengthen our economy, and protect our national security. #AmericaFirst.” (twitter.com)
  • “Dr. Gosar has strongly advocated for an all-of-the-above energy strategy.”

Environment

Environment: Do you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?   Dose Not Support

  • “With an estimated price tag of $93 trillion over the first 10 years, the Green New Deal costs more than four times the U.S. public debt. The Green New Deal is a Soviet-style takeover of our entire economy that will radically transform America into a country that will be very bleak and unrecognizable from the country that we know and love today. The proponents of the Green New Deal like to make it out to be a program to improve our environment, but in reality, it is just a socialist experiment on a grand scale.”
  • Rated 100% by National Association of Manufacturers.
  • “The EPA recently unveiled its new “Clean Power Plan” rule which seeks to dramatically reduce carbon emissions from power plants. American families are projected to lose almost $600 billion in disposable income as a result of EPA’s new proposed regulation. An economic analysis also found that this overreaching Washington mandate will kill 226,000 jobs annually and cost our economy $50 billion each year. All of this economic harm and destruction for our economies will only result in a 1.8% reduction of global carbon-dioxide emissions by the year 2030. I have cosponsored legislation and twice voted for bills that passed the House to block this overreach.”
  • Voted in favor of S.J.Res.23 “A Joint Resolution Providing for Congressional Disapproval Under Chapter 8 of Title 5, United States Code, of a Rule Submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency Relating to ‘Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from New, Modified, and Reconstructed Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units’ “

Gun Reform

Gun Reform: Do you generally support gun-control legislation?     Dose Not Support

  • Voted in favor of H.Amdt.1098 “Prohibits District of Columbia from Implementing Certain Firearm Laws”
  • “I am especially pleased to see the House support my actions today to protect the second amendment and defund the 7N6 ammo ban, not only because of the legislation’s merits, but also because the idea for the amendment was inspired by citizens from Prescott, Arizona.”
  • Rated 92% by National Rifle Association.
  • “I have and will continue to actively fight any attempt by the federal government to undermine our Constitution and infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. I passed an amendment through the House reversing the ATF ban on 7N6 ammunition, therefore restoring Second Amendment rights and preserving access to affordable ammunition for sporting purposes. There is no easy answer to the problem of violence we face in our country, but inhibiting the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their Constitutional rights is nothing more than window dressing.” (gosar.house.gov)

Health Care

Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”)?    Supports

  • “Obamacare is one of the most costly pieces of big government legislation ever rammed through the Congress and I have voted repeatedly for repeal. I support patient-centered reforms that preserve your right to see the doctor of your choice, protects small businesses, and lowers costs.” (drpaulgosar.com)
  • Voted in favor of H.R.3762 “Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015”
  • “America needs health care reform to lower costs, increase access, and enhance patient choice, and as your Congressman, I am committed to reform that is both patient-centered and market-based. That is why I strongly oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as “Obamacare”. Instead of responding to American’s calls for greater choice and more affordable options in the health insurance, President Obama’s colossal overhaul of the American health care system delivered a growing list of 20,000 pages of regulations that restrict choice, drive up insurance premiums and put more bureaucracy between you and your doctor.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • “I support a full repeal of the ACA and believe we must create a system which empowers patients to be in control of their health care, not one that empowers government bureaucrats. One of my first votes as a member of Congress in 2011 was in favor of H.R. 2, which sought to repeal the ACA in its entirety. Since then, I have voted 57 more times to fully repeal or defund various provisions of the law.” (gosar.house.gov)

Health Care: Do you support requiring businesses to provide paid medical leave during public health crises, such as COVID-19?     Unknown Position

  • Despite exhaustive research, Our research was unable to find information about this candidate’s position.

Health Care:    Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?     Unknown Position

  • “This is very important. We could improve the lives of millions of seniors by (1) not taxing social security benefits and (2) exempting seniors from local property taxes. Just when you think you own your house another big tax bill arrives. @FreedomWorks @pye.” (twitter.com)
  • Rated 4% by Alliance for Retired Americans (2019 Lifetime).
  • “America has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. While the United States is producing record federal revenue, Congress has failed to pass balanced budgets. If we do not change our course, we will be responsible for one of the worse catastrophes this nation has ever experienced: the crash of the American economy and the demise of a superpower.”
  • Signed a letter stating: “The Medicare Part D modernization plan proposed by the Trump Administration would be a strong step toward addressing this problem, significantly lowering patients’ out-of-pocket expenses and promoting a more competitive marketplace for prescription drugs. It would allow patients to take advantage of discounted drug prices at the point-of-sale at the pharmacy counter, rather than having to foot the bill for an artificially high cost. The proposed reform takes the benefits of competition and negotiating directly to Americans and no longer forces them to pay the bill for market distortions on prescription drugs.”

Immigration

Immigration: Do you support the construction of a wall along the Mexican border?    Supports

  • “I support President Trump’s border wall and have worked with the Trump Administration to finally address the threats posed by our porous borders. I fought the Obama Administration’s amnesty efforts, including those led by the so-called “Gang of 8,” and continue to be an outspoken leader on border security. I’ve earned an A+ from NumbersUSA and 100% from Federation for American Immigration Reform.” (drpaulgosar.com)
  • Signed a letter stating: “Before the House departs for the upcoming district work period, we ask House Leadership to bring a bill to the floor that funds enhanced border security measures, including following through on a commitment made by President Trump: the construction of a border wall.”
  • “Before the end of the 115th Congress, we must send a bill to @POTUS ’s desk that finally secures our border with a wall and by ending “catch & release” and chain migration policies that encourage illegal immigration.” (twitter.com)
  • “The federal government’s failure to enforce the Rule of Law and secure the border are some of the most pressing national security risks facing our country. No one knows this better than the people of Arizona, who have to deal with these problems on a daily basis.” (gosar.house.gov)

Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?     Supports

  • “It is true that the United States is a nation of immigrants. But more importantly, the United States is a nation of laws. The Rule of Law, in addition to the God-given rights protected by our Constitution, is perhaps the main attraction for those who wish to immigrate to our great country. Having said that, I want to be absolutely clear: I oppose the President Obama’s efforts to grant any sort of amnesty by executive fiat, and I oppose any efforts in Congress to grant amnesty to those who have broken our laws. To do so would be a slap in the face to the millions of people who have respected our immigration process and have waited their turn to come to this country.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • “Dr. Gosar opposes amnesty in all forms and will continue to do everything in his power to secure the border and end unlawful executive immigration policies that are putting Arizona communities at risk.”
  • “DACA is simply a Trojan horse resulting in amnesty for illegal aliens.” (twitter.com)
  • “Sanctuary cities around the country are costing American lives while creating an incentive for illegal aliens to keep attempting to cross our border in massive numbers. Fighting sanctuary policies is just as important as building the border wall.” (twitter.com)

Justice System

Justice System:    Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct?     Unknown Position

  • “Politicians shouldn’t draft police techniques as most have “never had to tackle a criminal high on PCP and any reforms should include a ban on public sector labor unions, which have made it difficult to fire rogue officers who commit murder.” (twitter.com)

National Security

National Security: Should the United States use military force to prevent governments hostile to the U.S. from possessing a weapon of mass destruction (for example: nuclear, biological, chemical)?    Unknown Position

  • “I fought adamantly against the disastrous Iran Deal, which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rightfully called a “historic mistake.” The deal lifts sanctions almost immediately rather than tying them to verifiable progress; it does not allow for a sufficient inspections regime; fails to curb Iran’s ballistic missile program; and allows Iran to keep its advanced centrifuges. Further, the arms embargo will become porous in the near term and will be completely lifted in five years—all while freeing up hundreds of millions of dollars to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • “I have been a consistent supporter of sanctions against Iran, one of the greatest threats to Israel. Sanctions are a crucial tool to limit the power of Iran and the terrorist organizations that it supports, including Hamas and Hezbollah.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 3364 – Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.
  • “The threats to our national security have never been greater. Belligerent foreign powers in North Korea and Iran threaten to obtain nuclear capabilities and naïve globalists believe we can avert the threat by appeasement. I opposed the Iran Nuclear Agreement, which gave the Iranian Regime hundreds of billions of dollars in exchange for a promise not to pursue nuclear weapons. The regime has not complied with the agreement and evade the inspections they agreed to. I support President Trump’s efforts not to certify the agreement and believe we need to increase sanctions on rogue nations like Iran.”

National Security: Do you support reducing military intervention in Middle East conflicts?     Unknown Position

  • “It is for these reasons and to protect future generations that Congress must unequivocally declare ISIS and its affiliates enemies of the United States. We must authorize a decisive and robust AUMF.” (gosar.house.gov)
  • Rated 100% by Center for Security Policy.
  • “We’ve been in a state of war for a generation. We’ve not had a decisive victory or positive outcome in Iraq or Afghanistan. I’m saying no to endless wars and that we follow the constitution: Art I, Sec 8, Clause 11 grants Congress the power to declare war.” (twitter.com)
  • “President @realDonaldTrump just announced a permanent ceasefire in Syria. This outcome was ONLY possible because of the leadership of @POTUS. American soldiers should not be fighting endless wars!” (twitter.com)

Political Corruption

Political Corruption:   Crime: Do you support the protection of government officials, including law enforcement officers, from personal liability in civil lawsuits concerning alleged misconduct? Unknown Position

“Politicians shouldn’t draft police techniques as most have “never had to tackle a criminal high on PCP and any reforms should include a ban on public sector labor unions, which have made it difficult to fire rogue officers who commit murder.” (twitter.com)


Social Security

Social Security:   Budget: Do you support expanding federal funding to support entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare?     Unknown Position

  • “This is very important. We could improve the lives of millions of seniors by (1) not taxing social security benefits and (2) exempting seniors from local property taxes. Just when you think you own your house another big tax bill arrives. @FreedomWorks @pye.” (twitter.com)

Taxes

Taxes:   Budget: In order to balance the budget, do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?   Dose Not Support

  • I will not vote to increase taxes. I stand firm in my conviction that you are the best person to determine how to spend your hard-earned money.”
  • Voted in favor of HR 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
  • “American families have to live within a budget and within their means. So should the federal government.

At the current pace, our national debt will exceed the size of our economy in less than two years.” (gosar.house.gov)

Trade

Trade: Do you generally support removing barriers to international trade (for example: tariffs, quotas, etc.)?     Supports

  • “I will vote for the #USMCA, but remain concerned about the inclusion of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which gives broad immunity to Big Tech, who use it as a shield from accountability.” (twitter.com)
  • “Let’s give credit to Ross Perot who correctly predicted that #NAFTA would hurt Americans. It did.” (twitter.com)
  • “By cutting red tape and regulations, lowering all taxes, and demanding fair trade policies, we can grow our economy and create better paying jobs. Economic growth originates from the hard-working entrepreneurial spirit of the American people and the best thing we can do to reignite job growth in this country is to get the federal government out of the way.” (drpaulgosar.com)
  • “President @realDonaldTrump has kept his promise to negotiate stronger trade agreements for the American people. Today’s enforceable agreement levels the playing field for American businesses and products while also holding China accountable.” (twitter.com)
