J.D. Winteregg (R-OH-8) To Primary John Boehner

Today, it seems as though authority is derived from Washington, and that we're expected to do what we're told. I believe authority comes from the people. The role of the representative should be to listen to the people and to advocate for them in Washington--not the other way around. - JD Winteregg

Healthcare

"We need to reduce the government involvement with respect to our healthcare. Allowing the free market to run its course will help to make healthcare more affordable to all. I am in support of the movement to entirely defund Obamacare." - J.D. Winteregg

I don't think he gets it.

All his solutions are just nipping around the edges, and a consumption tax will change very little of the federal excesses. The pressure will still be on the reps to "bring the money back home". Is he going to stand up in front of his constituents and declare he will refuse federal money? That would be a death sentence. The answer is to keep the money out of Washington in the first place.
I'm sure he is well intended and cares for our future, but his constitutional knowledge is lacking.

I have fully vetted J.D. and speak to him on the phone often. He is one us. J.D. understands the Constitution, and exactly what he is up against.

I hope you are right, but anyone who proposes

a consumption tax or "fair tax", and does not address the money-go-round, which keeps excessive power in DC, does not truly get it in my opinion. The 16th and 17th Amendments are the root of the problem. Until they are repealed, little will change.

Undo what Wilson did

Yeah, I 'm not really

Yeah, I 'm not really interested in someone coming up with clever new ways of extracting money from the populace.

Just stop it, please.

Education

"As a public school teacher, I understand the importance of this issue. As someone who feels the effects of federal mandates, and as someone who has witnessed the toll it has taken on my colleagues and students, I believe that education is best left to the local level. Parents and communities know what is best for their own children, and these decisions need to be left to them." - J.D. Winteregg

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Would he be willing to go on the record...

...as stating that he will sponsor legislation to abolish the department of education?

'"In 1980, when the Republican Party ran, part of the platform was to get rid of the Department of Education. By the year 2000, (that issue) was eliminated, and we fed on to it," Paul said. "Then ... Republicans added No Child Left Behind."'

'"I am going to promise to advocate the abolishment of the federal Department of Education," said former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson.'

'"What I would do as president of the United States is pass the mother of all repeal bills on education," said Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann. "Then I would go over to the Department of Education, I'd turn off the lights, I would lock the door and I would spend all the money back to the states and localities."'

We need to work to get rid of the Dept. of Education

As a teacher, and as someone who is working to become a teacher educator, it's clearer to me now more than ever that education needs to be left to the local level. If anything, it's the stated goal of progressives in academia that make it obvious to me that federal control of our educational system needs to be eliminated.

I want to share an excerpt from one of my texts from a teacher educator class-- Theory and Resistance in Eduction: Towards a Pedagogy for the Opposition by Henry A. Giroux. I think this passage sums up what I'm being taught--education isn't about education. It's about finding new ways to advance the progressive agenda.

"At the very least, radical pedagogical work proposes that education is a form of political intervention in the world and is capable of creating the possibilities for social transformation. Rather than viewing teaching as technical practice, radical pedagogy in the broadest terms is a moral and political practice premised on the assumption that learning is not about processing received knowledge but actually transforming it as part of a more expansive struggle for individual rights and social justice. This implies that any viable notion of pedagogy and resistance should illustrate how knowledge, values, desire, and social relations are always implicated in relations of power, and how such an understanding can be used pedagogically and politically by students to further expand and deepen the imperatives of economic and political democracy. The fundamental challenge facing progressive educators within the age of neoliberalism is to provide the conditions for students to address how knowledge is related to power of both self-definition and social agency. Central to such a challenge is providing students with the skills, knowledge, and authority they need to inquire and act upon what it means to live in a radical multicultural democracy, to recognize anti-democratic forms of power, and to fight deeply rooted injustices in a society and world founded on systemic economic, racial, and gendered inequalities" (p. xxvii).

I think this gives a glimpse as to why there's such a push by the left for federal control of our education. This is the only place progressives can reproduce, and we have to combat this effort. The only way to do this, in my mind, is to keep control of educating our children at the local level. THIS is why I am opposed to federal control of our educational system, and this is why I would advocate to abolish the Department of Education.

Fiscal Policy

"Representatives need to understand that the government is not the primary source of economic growth. The private sector is more efficient and productive than any government effort. Representatives should work with constituents to achieve private solutions to public problems, and they should avoid at all costs taxing the citizens. Federal spending should be done within the parameters of a balanced budget. Government fraud, waste, and abuse should be addressed before any taxes are raised on the American people." - J.D. Winteregg
