Michael Cloud for Congress | District 27

Issues

issuesFederal Spending and Debt

Over the past ten years, our nation’s debt has exploded, climbing past $20 trillion dollars.  The debate between Republicans and Democrats in Congress seems to be over whether it is better to go bankrupt in 10 years or 20 years. Without a serious congressional commitment to responsible spending cuts, our country will remain on a path to fiscal ruin.  We need people of courage in Washington if we are going to bring spending under control.

“No pecuniary consideration is more urgent, than the regular redemption and discharge of the public debt.”
– George Washington

issuesEconomy and Jobs

Freedom leads to prosperity. Michael’s top priorities include fostering job creation and unleashing the innovative potential of the American people by cutting back federal regulations and simplifying our convoluted tax code.

“A wise and frugal government…shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

issuesNational Defense

Providing for the common defense is one of the most important legitimate Constitutional responsibilities of our federal government. Michael Cloud is committed to ensuring that the United States military has the resources necessary to combat terrorism, counter enemy nations, and protect the life and liberty we hold dear.

“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.”
– George Washington

issuesThe 2nd Amendment

Our Founding Fathers knew that the only defense against tyranny was an armed citizenry. Michael Cloud will protect your right to keep and bear arms.

“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams

issuesHealth Care

The federal government has made a wreck of our health insurance system, and Texans are now experiencing skyrocketing premiums with less coverage. Obamacare must be repealed, and health care must be driven by a market-oriented approach that brings down costs and expands access to quality care. We must also ensure taxpayer dollars are not spent on abortion.

“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
– Ronald Reagan

issuesEducation

As the father of three children and the husband of a public school teacher, I understand our urgent need to provide a quality education for all of our nation’s students. Our bureaucratic approach to education is failing our students. We need to free teachers to teach and provide parents greater input in educational choices for their children.

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
– Abraham Lincoln

issuesBorder Security and Immigration

Our immigration system is in desperate need of reform, beginning with securing the border and upholding the rule of law.

Stand with me in telling Congress that 30 years of empty promises is shameful and that it’s time for the games to end so that our borders can be made secure.

Congress must fully fund the border wall and ensure that our Border Patrol Agents have the personnel, training, and equipment they need to secure our borders.

issuesVeterans

Our nation must keep its promise to the men and women who have served. We owe our veterans a tremendous debt and must ensure veterans have access to quality health care and education.

“For it has been said, all that a man hath will he give for his life; and while all contribute of their substance the soldier puts his life at stake, and often yields it up in his country’s cause. The highest merit, then is due to the soldier.”
– Abraham Lincoln

issuesAgriculture and Property Rights

Texans are leaders in agriculture and the best stewards of Texas land. Our farmers and ranchers do not need the EPA or other government agencies interfering with property rights or passing unnecessary, intrusive regulations.

“…it is not for the advantage of the public to deprive an individual of his property – or even to retrench the least part of it by a law or a political regulation.” – Charles Montesquieu

issuesEnergy

We are blessed as a nation to possess abundant resources.  We must continue to pursue energy independence.

issuesReligious Liberty

The Constitution is clear that the free exercise of religion shall not be prohibited. Michael will stand strong against government attempts to discriminate against people of faith.

“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports.”
– George Washington

issuesFamily Values

The essential building block of a healthy, productive society is the family. Yet political forces are at work to discriminate against and destroy this sacred institution. We need Representation that recognizes the essential role of the family — and works to enact policies that recognize parental rights, respect marriage and protect life.

“All great change in America begins at the dinner table.”
– Ronald Reagan

issues Standing with Israel

Israel and the United States share a friendship based not only on common strategic interests but also on a common commitment to freedom, human rights, and the rule of law. Israel is a responsible and reliable partner in world affairs, and it is in the best interest of the United States that Israel remain strong and prosperous. Congress should continue to support Israel in ways that promote the security of both countries.

“I had faith in Israel before it was established, I have faith in it. (May 14, 1948)”
– President Harry Truman

issues Pro-Life

A foundational moral principle in our nation is the understanding that every life has value. I believe life begins at conception and will continue to work to ensure each child is given the opportunity to experience the most basic of rights — the right to life. I am 100% pro-life.

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:13-14a)
– The Holy Bible
