PROVEN. CONSERVATIVE. RESULTS.

PROVEN. CONSERVATIVE. RESULTS.

WHAT RYAN BELIEVES

With control of the House, the Senate, and the White House, Republicans have a historic opportunity to enact policy that will help America grow and prosper for decades to come. If elected to Congress, I look forward to working with President Trump to push a conservative agenda through the legislature.

As a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, I have built a consistent, proven track record of advancing conservative legislation and getting results. I am pro-life, pro 2nd Amendment, and a strong fiscal conservative, and have always opposed sanctuary cities. I have also brought my business background to the state House, and been recognized as a “Guardian of Small Business.” I will continue to hold true to my beliefs in Congress.

I have lead by example on government reform. I refuse per diem payments, voted for pension reform and fought against carve-outs for the legislature, and introduced legislation for term limits on members of the U.S. Congress. To help American workers, we must stop illegal immigration and demand fair trade deals. We need elected officials that work for us.

We also need common sense solutions that address the most pressing problems facing the country. Our government and elected leaders must put America and its people first, and we should not be ashamed to fight for that every day.

If the federal government creates an environment where businesses can succeed, the American economy will grow and American workers will flourish. President Trump’s pro-growth tax reform, drive for less burdensome regulations, and attitude that we are “open for business” are already helping our economy come to life after years of sluggish growth.

We need to continue to cut red tape, make sure we have a skilled workforce, and a fair playing field when we are competing on the global stage.

Cutting Regulation and Red Tape

Within six months of joining the state House of Representatives, I introduced and had signed into law legislation that reigned in several job-killing regulations and the bureaucracy that was imposing them. I have continued the fight to reform outdated regulations and stop new laws from adding to the pile of regulations that is already weighing businesses down.

Job Training

As the vice chair of the state House Labor & Industry Committee, I have led the way on improving job training for young people and introduced legislation to build career awareness amongst high school and middle school students. I also serve on the PA Workforce Development Board and an advisory board for the Lehigh Career & Technical Institute (LCTI). We must continue to promote American manufacturing and jobs in that industry – they can provide good, family-sustaining careers straight out of a program like LCTI.

Fair Trade

We need trade policies that allow American products to compete in a free and fair way. With a level playing field, American workers and the goods they produce will win the day. Trade deals like NAFTA should be reviewed and revised to ensure that we are getting the best possible deal. We must also hold countries like China accountable when they violate international norms and standards of fair trade.

Obamacare must be repealed and replaced. It has led to rising premiums, high deductibles, and coverage that does not meet the needs of many individuals and families. While pre-existing conditions should be covered and children under the age of 26 should be allowed to stay on their parents’ plans, the rest of Obamacare has led to costs that are unsustainable and coverage that is lacking for many.

During my time in the state House, I have authored legislation that brings common sense to healthcare. I have written and had signed into law legislation that improves the care stroke victims receive in our state and I am working to improve maternal care.

We also must do more to address the opioid epidemic. While there is no silver bullet, an approach that deals with prevention, education, and treatment must be undertaken. In my role as vice chair of the state House Labor & Industry Committee, I have seen how the overprescribing of opioids to injured workers leads to not only more addiction, but also longer return to work times. To address this, I have introduced legislation to reign in this overprescribing of opioids.

A Strong Military Promotes Peace

President Trump’ plan to defeat ISIS is working because he has allowed the military to do the jobs they do so well without interference of politics. We must continue to allow our military leaders to carry out clearly defined missions, and we must make sure our military has the resources they need.
We must also ensure that the families of military members are not only thanked but cared for while their loved ones are serving.

Veterans Affairs and VA Reform

Many veterans are happy with the service they receive from the VA. However, the VA has also let down many of the veterans that it is supposed to serve. We must make sure that reform of the VA is carried so that our veterans get the best care in the world. This means that veterans should be allowed to more easily go outside of the VA system for care if and when they so choose.

More resources must also be committed to the VA so that they can care for the instances that are unique to veterans – both physical and emotional. For instance, while progress has been made in recognizing and addressing cases involving PTSD, we must continue to improve care in this area.

During my time in the state House, I was proud to introduce and have signed into law legislation that helps veterans and active duty military members transition to civilian life and start their own businesses.

Illegal immigration is hurting Americans by reducing economic opportunities and bringing down wages. We must secure our border by building a wall to stop illegal immigration and the flow of drugs coming into our country. We must oppose deals that call for “amnesty now and border security never.” We
have been down that path before in 1986 and Ronald Reagan called those policies one of the worst mistakes of his career.

We must stop terrible immigration policies such as the diversity lottery and put an end to the sanctuary policies that are hurting our country. In the state House, I have consistently voted against sanctuary cities and municipalities that recklessly ignore our laws and let criminals back on our streets.

Finally, we must fix legal immigration. By ending chain migration and instead instituting a system that promotes merit-based immigration, we will be able to focus on what is best for America by welcoming people who share our ideals and want to build our country up.

CREATING JOBS IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR

If the federal government creates an environment where businesses can succeed, the American economy will grow and American workers will flourish. President Trump’s pro-growth tax reform, drive for less burdensome regulations, and attitude that we are “open for business” are already helping our economy come to life after years of sluggish growth.

SERVING OUR MILITARY AND VETERANS
