FEATURED PRINCIPLE

Economies Prosper When Families Prosper

The family is an engine, a force for good. It powers our country and our economy. It’s a building block of who we are, a vision for what we can become, and the cornerstone of strong communities. Without it we are lost. Nourish it and we find prosperity.

FEATURED POLICY ISSUE

No Taxation Without Innovation

Our students deserve better than the status quo. A personal income tax increase and a sales tax increase will be placed on the ballot in 2018. But this will only feed more money into a flawed system and have immediate negative consequences on the economy.
A tax hike is the path of least resistance to improving education — that leads nowhere. We need to be for something, not just against a tax hike. We have to give voters, policymakers and community leaders something to stand for. That something is innovation and education choice.
