Government regulation is strangling the economy and I support President Trump's efforts to rollback the excessive meddling in the private affairs of business and individuals. I support the tax reduction for the businesses in the country and will fight to reduce taxes for individuals. Protecting the US security and not giving our sovereignty to the United Nations.
Get the government out of the contracts between the individual and the insurance company. Specifically allow major medical policies which were available before the government designed one size for all insurance coverage.
GET OUT OF THE WAY AND KEEP THE HIGHWAYS IN GOOD CONDITION. Don't tax the life out of industry and don't try to control how business relates with its customers.

My father was born in Weslaco, TX and worked as a machinist and is a chairman at the United Steelworkers Labor Union. I am running for congress to make a change in my community - to listen to their needs and represent those needs in Washington, DC.

It's time to invest in the district. We want our people to have safe federal roads, neighborhoods that are in livable environments. I will work with HUD to open investment opportunities to businesses and the residents so they can take pride and be apart of the change we bring.

I will fight for school choice. We should be able to direct our school taxes into the school we decide is best for child education - from charters school, home schooling, online, church community schools.
We must make health care more affordable. Obamacare was the wrong approach and needs to be repealed and states should be allowed to draft plans that meet their needs.
We need to create an environment for the economy to grow and thrive. Our goal should be 4% economic growth. That starts with making the tax cuts permanent. Congress has passed too many laws that are interfering with positive economic growth. We must remove any unnecessary and duplicate regulations and simplify those that remain. Finally, its time to repeal Obamacare and allow states to draft plans that meet their needs.

The three more important issues in District 29 are: Jobs, Education and Immigration. Jobs: Heavy regulations had limited jobs within our District. I believe that de-regulation and the revible of NASA will boost jobs in our District. Education: The Schools in our District are limited financially, as a community we need to provide more for our Children and bring into the area more Prep Schools of the likes of Cristo Rey Jesuit, like KIPP and Yes Prep. Immigration: The problem in the Border is affectiong us all. We need more Border Security to garanty Safety not only to our citizens but everyone acroos the Border. Houston had become number 1 Port of Human Traficking and that is one of the many crimes that we are facing in the Border along with many other crimes. As a legal immigrant I support legal immigration that respect the law of the land.
I think Medicaid should be available for these people
The Federal Goverment should improve the economy in the country in order for jobs to be created. At this moment de-regulation and tax cut is a positive approach into more jobs creation.
