Kevin Grant for U.S. Congressman, District 4 (Indiana)

On the Issues

As of October 23, 2017

 

Abortion:

  • Pro-life

Budget & Economy: 

  • Signed pledge to “Reject the Debt” through Coalition to Reduce Spending.

  • I, Kevin J. Grant, pledge to the citizens of Indiana and to the American people that, related to a congressional authorization of force, I will:

    • ONE, consider all spending open for reduction and vote only for budgets that present a path to balance; and

    • TWO, vote against any appropriations bill that increases total spending and against the authorization of funding of new programs without offsetting cuts in other programs.

    • Pledge signed, 4/1/2014, KJG.

                     

Civil Rights:

  • In my opinion, no individual should be judged by their economic status, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

  • Military veterans along with their families have suffered & sacrificed in order to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.  As a decorated combat veteran, I will continue to fight for the protection of our Civil Rights.

  • One exception, I will not tolerate anyone desecrating the American Flag.

Corporations:

  • In order to create more jobs in the United States, I would support a plan to reduce taxes that corporations pay.  My thoughts are…if a company pays less in taxes, then that capital could be used for new projects, which will increase the demand for workers, workers earn a paycheck, and then their money is introduced into the local economy. 

  • This idea would create a ripple effect; more money spent in the local economy would create more jobs.

 

Drugs:

  • Drugs are destroying families and killing thousands of people across the United States.

  • Utilizing my military experience, along with key personnel, I will develop a Drug Task Force (DTF) to review our current policy, procedures, past missions and current operations of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).  My goal is to stop the flow of drugs into the United States.

  • With reference to “legalizing marijuana”, I am against this practice.   

Foreign Policy: 

  • First and foremost, I would encourage the new Presidential administration to improve relations with our allies…especially Israel.

  • I would not advise any Presidential administration to broker deals with Terror sponsored states.

  • The current Iran “Nuke deal” is a mistake and should be terminated ASAP.

  • With reference to Foreign Aid, I believe we should stop sending billions of Tax Payers money to Foreign Countries and focus on the United States.    

Free Trade:

  • I support Free Trade as long it is fair and equitable for both parties.

Gun Control: 

  • As stated by many, “guns don’t kill people…people kill people”.  The Federal Government should stay out of its citizen’s lives by trying to control who can have (and what type) weapons.  

Health Care: 

  • With reference to Obamacare, insurance premiums continue to increase; it must be repealed & replaced.

Homeland Security:

  • With reference to the U.S. Mexico border, I propose that we continue to utilize the Army National Guard (which would be paid by the U.S. Government ((i.e. Title 10/32) and not the states bordering Mexico) by conducting six month rotations at the border.

  • With reference to Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall…I support the idea and would utilize the Army Corps of Engineers to build it.

Immigration: 

  • With reference to Illegal Immigration, the current laws should be adhered too until some type of reform can be developed and implemented. 

Religion:

  • I am a “Born again” Christian (Baptist) who believes we should keep God in the Public sphere.

Principles & Values: 

Throughout my life, I have adhered to the following principles/values/ideas:

  • First off, I have never been a “Yes Man”…if I see something that is not quite right…I will challenge it until an appropriate idea/solution is presented.    

  • With reference to voting in the House, I will not always vote along party lines.  I will base my vote on the prevailing wishes between myself and the citizens of Indiana.

  • I believe in: Integrity, Honor, Selfless Service, Duty, Respect & Loyalty.

Same Sex Marriage:

  • I stand by the Biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. 

Social Security: 

  • First and foremost, we should not touch Social Security Funds in order to pay for other Government programs.  Privatize Social Security; let people invest in their own retirement plans.

Tax Reform:

  • The current tax system is outdated and needs to be revised.
