Reform excessive and intrusive taxation and regulation, keep wasteful spending in check. We are experiencing incredible growth in New York City. Property values are doubling every 4 years. Crime is at its lowest in years. But we need to make New York City a more affordable and a stronger city. We have a budget of $140 billion dollars a year. We got away with our overspending because we have brought in so much money. But our schools are not the best, and our healthcare is not the best. The ‘Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’ had many benefits across the country, but it has hurt New Yorkers. It exposed how hefty our State and Local taxes are; we are the most taxed and overburdened state. I will go to Washington to influence a system overhaul.
On the federal level, I will focus on removing items that do not belong in taxable income, distort the markets, and are especially burdensome to New Yorkers. Some examples of these are: the housing rent expense, out-of-pocket medical costs, and dividends paid from taxed corporate income.
Create better education for children. I believe in state rule and state government, but a lot of Federal education funding that goes in is not helping our kids in schools. Nadler has not been doing what needs to be done. I would advocate for changing funding allocation to allow more charter schools to function. Parents who are not happy with the school redistricting changes of 2017 will have more options to find the best choice for their children. I will work with our leaders in Washington to allocate funds to programs that work.
Prevent Iran from becoming an even greater menace. Iran’s recent drive toward domination has caused much destabilization in the Middle East and threatens our National Security. We cannot allow Iran to become a state sponsor of terrorism with nuclear capability. The Iran deal, championed by Congressman Nadler, was deeply flawed. It released over $100B to the world’s greatest state sponsor of terrorism, guarantees that Iran will become a threshold nuclear power in no more than 10 or 15 years, and has allowed Iran to proceed with its proliferation away from the eyes of inspectors. It also allows Iran to develop ballistic missiles that could deliver a nuclear warhead to the United States, and likely will set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. We need a plan to impose harsh economic sanctions on Iran. I would advocate for a sanctions timeframe and assess the efficacy. I will work with Congress to make sure we have a sound plan of action for Iran so that this problem can be resolved peacefully while we have the time.
