My opponent for Congress feels that parents do not have the right to protect their children from testing that has no benefit to their educational advancement. She believes that the federal government should have a major role in our kids’ education. I do not. I support a parent’s right to opt their children out of Smarter Balance Testing and I reject Common Core. Education should be handled at the local level by elected school boards, professional educators, PTA organizations, and parents.
Here’s the deal in the Delaware race for the US House this year:
Democrat John Carney has over $1 million in campaign contributions, the organizational strength of the Democratic Party, the warm bodies provided for him by the unions, and a captive statewide media. Their definition of a “debate” is having their guy sit for an hour beside an empty chair.
The ‘Affordable’ Care Act is only affordable for those that for whatever reason could not get health insurance before the passage of Obamacare. I have always supported legislation that stopped insurance companies from discriminating against people who had pre-existing conditions. What I oppose is government forcing insurance companies to provide coverage for things people do not need, as well as forcing individuals to buy coverage they do not need. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), aka; Obamacare, has done nothing to increase competition or lower the cost of healthcare.
I will be debating John Carney and Bernie August on 1150 AM, WDEL on Monday, October 27th from 6pm-7pm. Please listen in or follow on their website.

By now we have all heard of how the National Security Agency (NSA) has been collecting communications on ALL Americans. It does not matter whether the citizen was suspected of any crime or not. The federal government, without consulting Congress, decided behind closed doors that to protect us, they had to know everything we are communicating to one another. This is an obvious violation of our fourth amendment rights.
