SOLVING THE DEBT CRISIS
Every child born in this country owes $200,000 toward the national debt and unfunded federal obligations. It is imperative that we act now to stop deficit spending. Thomas supports the “penny plan” which cuts the federal budget by 1% each year until the budget is balanced. American families must live within their means, and so should the government.
PROMOTING ENERGY SOLUTIONS
The price of energy is embedded in everything we buy from the supermarket to the car lot. Regulations and mandates that stifle energy production are dragging down our economy, especially in Kentucky. Thomas supports the REINs act that Geoff Davis championed because it limits the power of unelected bureaucrats to impose economically crippling regulations.
REFORMING THE TAX CODE
Our tax code is confusing, unfair, and full of loop holes for special interests with political influence. Thomas supports a fairer, flatter tax plan that distributes the burden more fairly without increasing overall revenues for the federal government.
PRESERVING INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM
Our natural God given rights to life, liberty, and property are slowly being eroded by legislation and liberal supreme court justices. Thomas is opposed to ObamaCare, the Patriot Act, any new firearms restrictions, the intrusive actions of the Transportation Security Administration, indefinite detention of American citizens without trial, internet censorship, and all other infringements on our liberties by the federal government.
