I have been a Professional Speaker and Professor of Critical Thinking for years, teaching students how to think, understand, and address difficult subjects. Such a skill will be useful in the halls of Congress.
Yes, such events are inevitable, so not to plan for them is potentially disastrous. Further, not being prepared is costly, not just financially, but also physically as many people succumb to post catastrophic issues just as much as the initial impact of such events. Therefore, by ensuring needed resources are available, we can act quickly to serve our citizens.
For starters, i will propose allowing seniors to opt out of Medicare and ensure the protection of other benefits earned through years of working. - Protect seniors who disenroll from Medicare from automatically losing their Social Security benefits and from any requirements to pay back any benefits they've received in the past. - May allow options and other access to care.
Border Security – continue to increase the amount of Border Agents. Provide workers within those agencies that will be responsible for overseeing children and unaccompanied minors to free up agents. Employ the use of more technology. End any form of catch and release. Implement harsh penalty for those entering the country illegally and much more!
Protecting the lives of the unborn: Protect Life of the Unborn - focus on passing pro-life legislation that will protect the unborn from the moment of conception.

Education – focus on giving states and school districts back the control needed to do what is best for the students. • Support legislation continue to get Washington out of the classroom.
