Qualifications/Experience David is an engineer, lawyer, businessman and the former CEO of Hill International, a global construction management firm.
The federal government should continue to play an active role in combating COVID-19 and helping small businesses and struggling families that have been adversely impacted by the crisis, and should also be taking the lead in safely reopening the American economy before long-term and permanent economic damage is done to our country. However, the federal government should not be in a position of providing bailouts for state and local governments that are facing financial difficulties largely of their own making. The federal government should also take proactive steps now so that America is better prepared for any possible future pandemics.
David's top three policy priorities are to cut taxes, cut wasteful spending and strengthen Social Security and Medicare. President Trump’s tax cuts were a good start and helped to spur economic growth, but more needs to be done. In Congress, David will fight to further cut individual marginal tax rates. He will also press for additional tax reforms that incentivize entrepreneurship, help small and family-owned businesses grow, and ensure that America’s economy is built for success in the 21st century. Our national debt is now $23 trillion. This is a ticking time bomb for our economy. David will use his private-sector experience to streamline the federal bureaucracy and promote spending reforms that rein in the size and cost of government in order to balance the federal budget. David will also ensure that our government keeps its promises to our seniors and strengthens both Social Security and Medicare now and for the future.
As a civil engineer with more than two decades of experience in the construction industry, David knows how to get things built. His former company helped to build schools, hospitals, museums and courthouses. It managed the construction of airports, highways, rail and other infrastructure projects. And it oversaw development of renewable energy projects to help keep our environment as clean as possible. In Congress, he will work with President Trump and be a leader in the effort to pass a comprehensive bill that will invest in American infrastructure in order to improve our competitiveness. This massive investment will help quickly rebuild our economy and create millions of new jobs, putting Americans back to work.
Many Democrats are pushing for unaffordable new healthcare programs that would cost trillions of dollars. These programs would force private insurance companies into bankruptcy, destroying millions of jobs in the process. In Congress, David will fight against socialized medicine and work to promote market-based reforms that drive down the cost of medical care and prescription drugs while maintaining the high levels of quality that Americans have come to rely upon for their health care.
Making sure that our elections are secure must be a top priority. We should do this by prohibiting all vote-by-mail (VBM) elections where fraud and negligence can interfere with fair elections and ensuring that each voter has valid identification at the polls. This should be done in a fair and simple way to ensure that each and every American can easily exercise their constitutional right to vote.
