U.S. House District 1 Election (NH): Frank Guinta on the issues
Guinta strongly supports an “all of the above” approach for increasing domestic energy production, which would lower gas prices, reduce the nation’s dependence on hostile foreign countries and create American middle-class jobs. That means everything from safe development of oil (offshore and onshore), natural gas, clean coal and other fossil fuels to alternative energy sources such as wind, solar, hydropower, nuclear, geothermal, and biomass.
Whether it is supporting initiatives such as the Keystone XL Pipeline or a bipartisan plan to expand renewable hydropower production, Guinta is open to exploring all options available.
Guinta believes we have to reduce the federal government’s role in education and return power to states, local officials, educators and most importantly, to parents.
Guinta believes it is time for an overhaul. He will continue fighting for a simpler, fairer and more competitive tax system. By lowering and consolidating rates (both individual and corporate), closing special-interest loopholes and broadening the base, he believes we can get our economy moving in the right direction.
New Hampshire has one of the nation's highest per capita military veterans population. Guinta said one of his top priorities is insuring they receive the benefits they have earned. He has fought for a full service VA medical facility. He has also worked to reduce veteran homelessness within the first district and hosted a job fair specifically for military veterans that helps put those Granite Staters who served back to work.
Guinta has led the charge to repeal or defund the Administration’s Healthcare Reform Law passed last Congress. He wants to fight for affordable and accessible health care for every American, and put doctors and patients back in control of their personal health care decisions. By restoring the power of patient choice, we can return our health care system to one that is responsive, innovative and provides the highest quality of care.
Guinta supports legal immigration, but strongly opposes illegal immigration. He believes we are a nation of laws and we must enforce those laws. His first priority is to secure our country's border for both our national security interests and to stop the flow of illegal immigrants. That means increased border agents, construction of permanent walls, and the use of new technology. He does not support amnesty of illegal immigrants currently living in the United States.
