PAID FOR BY LISA SONG SUTTON FOR CONGRESS

ISSUES & POLITICAL CONCERNS

I believe that everyone deserves a fair chance to succeed and to fulfill our individual dreams.  For this reason, as your next Member of Congress, my goal will be to empower you … so that you can achieve your individual dreams. 

 

Our nation’s success is built on the founding principles of encouraging and safeguarding individual freedoms and liberties.  In fact, what is unique about our U.S. Constitution is that this guiding document – the supreme law of the land – wasn’t adopted to place limits on us as individuals, but rather to protect individuals from the heavy hand of government. 

 

Under these core beliefs, please read more about my positions on key issues. I welcome your feedback and look forward to dialog with you.

SECURE BORDERS & RESPONSIBLE, LEGAL IMMIGRATION

My cousin is a federal agent with I.C.E. and previously served with U.S. Customs & Border Patrol on the Arizona/Mexico border. I have heard the kitchen table stories of what our men and women who are “boots on the ground” face on our southern border. We must provide more funding, more manpower, repairs and physical barriers where needed.

Legal immigration is a cornerstone of this country. My mother is a legal immigrant from South Korea. We must have the courage to reform our current system, given our public safety and border security objectives. I advocate for a merit-based system that reduces delays for law abiding, work-oriented immigrants, while also eliminating taxpayer-funded incentives to either illegally cross our border or overstay a visa.

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY, LOWER TAXES

“We are ecstatic about Ms. Sutton’s commitment to the taxpayers of Nevada.” – Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform.

I have signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and support no new tax increases on hardworking American citizens. When I started my bakery in 2012, I was able to do so here in Nevada due to our business-friendly environment. We must keep Nevada that way.

On the federal level, we must get our debt under control.  As your next Congresswoman, I will fight for a Balanced Budget Amendment and I will most certainly not saddle future generations of Nevadans and Americans with unending debt. 

SUPPORT OF OUR

NATION'S VETERANS

My father always told me, “Don’t outsmart your common sense.” He is a Vietnam veteran and instilled in me a sense of duty and respect for our great country.  I am and will continue to be a fierce advocate for our veterans and military families.  My family understands firsthand the issues our veterans face with the current state of the VA Hospital. The men and women who have served our nation are the true heroes amongst us, and they deserve our unwavering appreciation and support. 

FULL 2ND AMENDMENT PROTECTION FOR

LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS

One of our most sacred rights that is enshrined in our Bill of Rights is our ability to protect ourselves and our families from those who seek to physically harm us.  My father gave me my first shotgun when I was 9 years old. I learned firearm safety and firearm responsibility from an early age. Especially as a woman, I understand firsthand that a firearm is the most efficient way to equalize a life-threatening situation.

More restrictive gun laws and various proposed bans will have little impact on crime because, with history as our guide, they have had little impact when explored in the past.  More restrictive gun laws don’t work because, by their very nature, criminals do not follow the law.  Gun bans and restrictions disproportionally affect law-abiding citizens, disarming them so that they are more vulnerable to attacks by those who seek to do harm. 

As your next Congresswoman, I will fight to protect the rights of all peaceful, law-abiding citizens.
