1. Save Americans from skyrocketing energy bills. It’s time to reverse the war on coal and stop the greenhouse gas regulations that will drive up energy costs for families—with no noticeable climate benefit. People—especially low-income Americans—need affordable, reliable energy. The President’s climate regulations will drive up household electricity bills and destroy jobs across the country without making a dent in global temperatures.
2. Let students thrive and succeed through school choice. It’s not too late, but it is past time for the President to support school choice in the nation’s capital. The D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program is helping children from low-income families succeed—yet every year, the Administration has tried to zero out funding for it. In fact, the D.C. program should inspire cities across America. When parents choose, students win, because school choice works.
3. Return the government to being of the people, by the people, and for the people.People (and their elected representatives), not the President or the courts, should make marriage policy in the states. The Obama Administration should instruct all agencies of the federal government to respect states’ authority over marriage and stop redefining marriage for a variety of federal purposes. And government should not violate the rights of those who stand for marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
