I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009 [¦] What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected. To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession."

  • Tom Jones. Education Committee deserves failing grade. 17 May 2011. "The Saturday article 'Vote helps math-challenged' is the perfect example of why our educational system is failing. It has nothing to do with money. It has to do with demanding that our children learn the curriculum. Why even have a proficiency exam? As students fail more parts of the exam, just allow them to pass if they fail two parts, then three parts, etc. If Nevada would cut school administrative expenses instead of laying off teachers, and if Nevada would stop social promotion in all grades levels, we would see a vast improvement in the education of our children without spending more money. Nevada should also enact illegal immigration laws similar to those in Oklahoma and Arizona to save money on the health care and education of illegals, which would also help balance the budget and reduce education cuts. We don't need more money for education. We need more education for our money." (www.electtomjones.com)

  • Tom Jones. Social Security. 25 August 2010. "I want to quote directly from the front page a statement by Michael J. Astrue, the commissioner of the Social Security Administration: 'Social Security is a compact between generations. Since 1935, America has kept the promise of security for its workers and their families. Now, however, the Social Security system is facing serious financial problems, and action is needed soon to make sure the system will be sound when today's younger workers are ready for retirement. In 2016 we will begin paying more in benefits than we collect in taxes. Without changes, by 2037 the Social Security Trust Fund will be exhausted.' Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been in a position to 'fix' Social Security for how long now? How much longer does he need? All he can do is mock, twist and bend any solutions offered by his opponent. In my opinion, we should replace Social Security with a 401k type account for individuals. Let everyone over 30 or 35 decide if they want to continue with Social Security. Anyone younger is out automatically. They would use the 401k account." (electtomjones.blogspot.com)

To do this we must improve our state's educational system, control our state's spending, reduce regulations and costs to businesses, and eliminate illegal immigration.

By controling the state's budget and eliminating tax increases, we stimulate the economy, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for Nevadians.
