Radnofsky on the Issues
October 30, 2006
I'm a mother of three, wife, volunteer teacher, mediator, and practicing lawyer for twenty-seven years. I'm a professional problem solver who knows how to represent people, how to fight for people, and how to bring people together.
In my more than 560 trips across the state, Texans have repeatedly said that they want a senator who they can trust, who will stop wasting our taxpayer dollars, who will honor our promises to the brave men and women who have served our country, who will eliminate the alternate minimum tax that is hurting the middle class, and who will advocate for Texas farmers and ranchers and bring home the agricultural relief they need.
For three years I have advocated education and insurance reforms which will reduce waste, save billions, avoid disease, and lower taxes. Health care reform will ensure our ability to respond to bio-terror attacks. I am the daughter and granddaughter of injured veterans, and we need a G.I. Bill of Rights for the 21st Century.
I received an "A" rating by the NRA and will fight to protect the Constitution and the Second Amendment.
My opponent refuses to pledge to serve out her six-year term in the senate if elected. She has given every indication that she will cut and run from her senate service. The senior senator from Texas believes perjury is a mere technicality, she will not take a stand on outlawing horse slaughter for human consumption, a cause every Texan understands. She has proven over her thirteen years in the senate that she is a liberal spender, and she has voted to rubberstamp failed Bush Administration policies 95.6% of the time.
Under my opponent's 13-year senate career, Texas ranks first in uninsured children, first in high school dropouts and 41st in federal funding. The agricultural relief bill has been delayed for two years. The problems that Texas and our nation face can be solved, but we need a leader in the senate who has a track record of solving problems.
My opponent believes that we cannot even think about leaving Iraq until the country is stabilized. Our presence is destabilizing Iraq. We must set a timetable and withdraw. My opponent is promising perpetual war.
I bring my experience as a problem solver to the race for the U.S. Senate. I have made over 560 trips across Texas in the last two and a half years, and have promoted my message of honesty, of credibility, and of bringing effective representation to Texans in the U.S. Senate.
