Elect Adam Hasner – Florida Congressional District 22 – Here are his stands on the issues

If elected to the United States Congress, I pledge the following commitments:

I will stop Washington’s unsustainable spending. Job creation and real economic growth begins with stopping Washington from spending money Americans do not have. I will oppose earmark spending and will vote to ban it.

I will oppose tax increases. Taxes are too high already. I will oppose any attempt to raise taxes and work instead to institute real tax reforms that will make our tax code simpler, flatter and fairer.

I will fight for a Balanced Budget Amendment. As Founding National Co-Chair of Pass The Balanced Budget Amendment, I have been fighting for a balanced budget amendment for two years. I will continue the fight in Washington for a real Balanced Budget Amendment, one with teeth and spending caps to attack the debt.

I will repeal Obamacare. I will work to defund and repeal Obamacare, and I will work to replace it with a healthcare system that puts patients in control of their own health care choices.

I will work to make America more energy independent. I have been a leader for more domestic energy exploration for oil and natural gas as well as nuclear, coal, and renewable sources of energy. Lessening America’s dependence on foreign sources of energy is a natural security issue. We must do it without job-killing policies like cap and trade or carbon taxes.

I will only serve two terms, and will fight for Congressional term limits of 12 years. Career politicians from both parties are making it impossible to make the changes that need to be made in Washington. I will fight for term limits.

I will insist on National Security Based on Peace through Strength. America faces serious threats from radical Islam and a nuclear Iran. I will not let political correctness get in the way of confronting our national security threats at home or abroad. I will make sure our men and women in uniform have the best training, equipment, and support for the fight, and the services and care they deserve when they return home.

I will oppose all taxpayer funding of abortion. I am pro-life. I will vote to defend life, and to ensure that not one penny of taxpayer money goes toward funding abortions.

I will continue to stand up for the Second Amendment. I am proud of the A+ rating I earned from the National Rifle Association during my time in the legislature, and I will continue to defend each individual’s Second Amendment rights in the United States Senate.

I will vote to secure our borders and oppose amnesty and amnesty-like proposals. In addition to being an economic issue, making sure our laws are followed and that we have an immigration system that works is a national security and a moral issue.

This pledge is the foundation of our campaign and the principles on which we’ll build a platform of solutions in the coming weeks and months.

I look forward to having a conversation with all Floridians about the ideas we need to solve our nation’s challenges.

Meet The Man Stepping Up to the Plate for Florida’s District 22

Adam Hasner Interview, Allen West’s and Marco Rubio’s Reinforcement in Palm Beach

The man stepping up to the plate for Florida’s District 22 – Meet Congressman Elect Adam Hasner

Adam Hasner is lifelong Republican deeply committed to limited government, free markets, American values and a strong national defense.

Adam has over 15 years of private sector business experience in the healthcare industry working with hospitals and healthcare systems to acquire and manage physician practices.

Adam was first elected in 2002 to serve as a part-time state legislator representing Palm Beach and Broward Counties. Serving alongside Marco Rubio in the Florida House for six years, in 2007, Adam was selected by then-Speaker Rubio to serve as Majority Leader for the Republican caucus, a position he held for four years until being term limited from office in 2010.

Adam has a lifetime “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, a 98% rating from the Florida Chamber of Commerce, and is a winner of the Christian Coalition of Florida’s Faith and Family Award.

His strong, principled conservative leadership in the House made him a natural to lead key fights for eliminating property taxes, protecting employees right to secret ballots in the workplace, reducing government spending (including his own salary as an elected official), and for accountability and choice in public schools.

Adam believes energy independence is vital for America’s national security. He supported legislation for domestic exploration for oil and natural gas off Florida’s coast and co-sponsored legislation to unravel Charlie Crist’s Obama-style “cap and trade” scheme in Florida.

Adam is an unwavering national advocate in support of Israel, and has also become a recognized voice in warning about the dangers of radical Islam. In 2007, he led the effort to pass Florida’s first in the nation law to divest state pension funds from companies that do business in Iran.

In 2009, Adam fought against the impacts of the federal stimulus and successfully rejected nearly $500 million in unemployment funds that would have resulted in a tax increase for Florida businesses.

In 2010, well before the issue became part of national headlines, Adam led the House Republicans in demanding the United States Congress pass a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and then served as the founding national Co-Chairman of the citizen action group, Pass The Balanced Budget Amendment.

Adam is endorsed by FreedomWorks and Concerned Women for America, and by national conservative voices Mark Levin, Erick Erickson of RedState.com and Monica Crowley of Fox News.

Adam and his wife Jillian live in Boca Raton, Florida.

Officially Endorsed by the current sitting Congressman of Florida CD22 Allen West “Adam Hasner has my full endorsement and support to run in Florida’s 22nd Congressional District. Adam was a fine State Representative and Majority Leader of an area which overlaps this Congressional district. I wish him the best, believe in him wholeheartedly and look forward to working alongside of him on Capitol Hill.”

VIDEO- Congressman Allen West – Special Order Speech on the House Floor 11/8/11

“As we enter the final days of 2011, and approach the end of this first session of the 112th Congress, I must take the time to offer an apology to the citizens of the 22nd congressional district of Florida, and to all my fellow citizens across this great nation…

“It is not because we haven’t changed the conversation here in Washington D.C., but because I would have hoped our exertions would have been, as a collective body, a bit greater…

“On the eve of the holiday season, the United States Congress is dealing with some of its most important issues, all while pressed against the desire to be home and with our families and loved ones… members should be willing to stay as long as it takes…”

Congressman Allen West – Weekly Wrap Up 11/21/11

 

Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and all Americans, let me begin by wishing all of you a very happy Thanksgiving. I pray everyone will travel safely and enjoy a special time with family and friends, enjoy the feast and that your favorite football team wins!

Speaking of winning and losing, I am sad to report that the American people have witnessed a collective group of losers in those elected to the United States House of Representatives. It was incredibly appalling for me to sit there and watch the Balanced Budget Amendment fail to get the two-thirds majority necessary on Friday. Now we are seeing the abject failure of the so-called “Super Committee” which was tasked to develop a plan for deficit reduction.  Every day it looks like that is not going to happen.

The liberal mantra for describing the Republican Party was The Party of No!” I must agree, they said “No” to a $2 trillion healthcare law, a $1 trillion stimulus package, Card Check, and Cap and Trade. However, in my short 11 months on Capitol Hill, I realize the modern-day Democrat Party, primarily controlled by liberal progressives, is “The Party of No Solutions.”

The United States of America just exceeded a record $15 trillion in debt. We now have a debt to GDP ratio of 101%, not that far from Greece (128%) and Italy (120%). Under the failed leadership of President Barack Obama, we have added $4.4 trillion of new debt in less than three years and have seen three straight years of record deficits; $1.42 trillion, $1.29 trillion, and $1.3 trillion. In 2011, we have seen anemic quarterly GDP growth of only 0.4%, 1.0%, and 2.5%. At this time in the third year of the first term of the Reagan Administration we were at 7-8% GDP growth.

This past week, we had a Statement of Administration Policy (SAP) from President Obama stating they strongly opposed a Balanced Budget Amendment, even though it was the same Amendment that came within one vote of passing in the United States Senate in 1995. We listened to countless Democrats on Thursday and Friday during debate stating this was not the time and this would not help the fiscal morass in which we find ourselves.

Then I ask what is the solution? More government spending? Because that is all the liberals seem to understand. Their convoluted understanding of simple economic principles is just baffling. It makes one believe the liberal agenda is to have more people wedded to a subsistence or government check, so they will be beholden to government and cast their votes to continue more of the same.

Under the Obama Administration we have seen a 41% increase in food stamp recipients, a 16% increase in Americans on poverty, and 48.5% of Americans on some form of government aid. The liberals want and need victims. They need to have a majority of Americans wedded to government.
A Balanced Budget Amendment would have put a serious constraint on the liberal ability to come up with more failed bureaucratic nanny-state schemes. The Balanced Budget Amendment would have destroyed the potential ability of “statists” to expand the size and scope of the federal government. We cannot resolve the job situation in America unless we get the investment capital of America back on Main Street.

When combined with the failure of the “Super Committee,” the harebrained idea of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, we see the inability of the liberals to present any viable solution beyond Tax the Rich!

Paul Krugman stated, “Allow the Super Committee to fail and have sequestration kick-in.” Why? Because the liberal progressive mindset is all about punishing the Department of Defense and gutting it to levels which shall threaten the future security of our nation.

Following the lead of their Campaigner-in-Chief, all the Democrats are seeking to stall and be the ultimate obstructionists so they can blame the House Republicans. President Obama is taking a page from President Harry Truman’s playbook of running against a “do-nothing” Congress… and a complicit mainstream media is his primary enabler.

The truth is obvious; the Democrats are the “do-nothings,” unless destroying the fiscal status of America counts for something. The United States Senate, controlled by Democrat Leader Harry Reid, has failed to produce a budget in over 900 days. The same Senate has 22 job-creating pieces of legislation, passed by the House of Representatives, sitting on its desk, bills that will incentivize and revitalize economic and job growth.

The “Super Committee” will allow President Obama and his liberal acolytes to again say, the Republicans are intransigent. The truth is, as stated by Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) a week ago on Fox News Sunday, the Democrats had no plan. They rejected a plan from Republicans which showed you can stabilize or reduce tax rates combined with eliminating tax loopholes to generate revenues. 

President Obama decides to stall on the Keystone XL project, with not a peep from the mainstream media. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder called American a “nation of cowards.” The only cowards I see are those in the media who are complicit in not reporting the true story of what is going on in Washington D.C.

I would much rather be a member of a party that says “No” to President Obama’s desire to fundamentally transform our America. I am proud to say “No” to continued deficit spending and growth of our debt.

I am pleased to say to my constituents that I voted YES to a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. However, the South Florida media conglomerate should be asking my Democrat colleagues why they do not believe we should balance our federal budget? State Governments balance their budgets, businesses balance their budgets, families balance their budgets.

We just continue to build “Mount Debtmore” with the faces of President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, House Minority Leader Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Whip Hoyer prominently displayed.

In closing, be not dismayed. We have much to be thankful for, as citizens of this great nation, and we will continue to fight for what is right.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Statement on Congressman Allen West’s Vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment

Constitutional Amendment Fails by 29 votes

(WASHINGTON)—- Congressman Allen West (R-FL) released this statement today after voting in support of H.J .Res 2 – a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

“As our nation passes $15 trillion in debt this week, the House of Representatives has once again let down the American people and instead chosen the path of continued spending beyond its means.

The Balanced Budget Amendment would have put our nation on a path to fiscal and economic sustainability. However, by their vote today, the majority of House Democrats and their Party have made it obvious they prefer the road of increasing debt and enormous deficits. I further found it appalling that House Democrats clapped and cheered on the House Floor at the failure of the Balanced Budget Amendment.

I am proud to have supported a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution – an identical Amendment that was passed by a vote in the House of Representatives of 300-132 in 1995, only to fall one vote short in the United States Senate.

I commend the Members of the House – both Republicans as well as 25 Democrats – who voted for this amendment and put  their country before politics. The Balanced Budget Amendment made perfect sense- ensuring the United States spends only the taxpayer dollars the U.S. Treasury collects each year.  But unfortunately, too many Members of Congress put politics before America’s future.

When I – along with 86 of my Freshmen colleagues – were elected a little more than a year ago, we pledged to change the conversation in our Nation’s Capital.  Despite today’s failed resolution, I believe we have changed that conversation.  It is more important than ever Americans continue to get involved in the political process and elect legislators who believe in doing what is right for this country.  Americans are balancing their family budget, it is imperative leaders have the courage to do the same.”
