Tim Walberg - Candidate profile for 7th Congressional District

By  | 

"Hi, I'm Tim Walberg. As your Congressman, I spend every day fighting for you and your family. Your priorities are my priorities. Let me take a moment to talk about three of them: jobs, security, and strong communities. The best solutions to create jobs and grow a healthy economy come from Michigan, not Washington. The federal government must live within its means and keep taxes low, so more money stays in your pockets. Skyrocketing premiums under Obamacare are making health care unaffordable, and we need patient-centered reforms to lower costs and increase choices. We need to stop bad trade deals like TPP that hurt Michigan workers and manufacturers. And we need to expand career and technical education, so students can enter the workforce with the skills they need to succeed. On matters of national security, we must strengthen our resolve to protect the homeland and take the fight to ISIS. And put an end to dangerous polices that weaken our military and pay ransom to our enemies. The backbone of our country is strong families and communities. Let's work together to make them stronger. Here in Michigan, we need to preserve and restore our waterways and magnificent Great Lakes. Rebuild our roads, bridges, and local infrastructure. And combat heroin and drug addiction while offering a helping hand to those in need. As a father and grandfather, I worry about whether we will leave behind a better future than the one we inherited. But if we stand united as one people, I'm confident we can build a safer and more prosperous future for the next generation. It is an honor to represent you in Congress, and I humbly ask for your vote."
