ON THE ISSUES

Jacob Turk for Congress 

 

Small Business Help and Support

Jacob Turk is committed to helping small business not only survive in America, but to thrive. He knows that small business is the job creation engine of America. As a former small business owner himself for more than 12 years, when Mr. Turk is your Congressman he will fight to reduce the burden of regulations that are squeezing the life out of independent businesses. He will also personally pick up the phone to intervene on behalf of Mom and Pop shops in our district who are unfairly being harassed by the Federal bureaucracies of the EPA, OSHA, and the IRS.

Incumbent Emanuel Cleaver believes in government control in every aspect of our lives, from the way we run our business to what kind of light bulbs we can buy.

 

Time for Change.

 

Common Sense Healthcare Reform

Jacob Turk will work to repeal and replace Obamacare with a common sense solution that will provide coverage for those unable to do so on their own with no rate ups or turn downs for pre-existing conditions. That is all the American people wanted. Instead, with the help of Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, we got a government takeover of 1/5th our economy that was forced on a nation that did not want it.

Under Obamacare millions of Americans have lost their healthcare plan and the right to choose their own doctor. And under Obamacare the insurance we are being offered is expensive - for some doubling their monthly premium! Obamacare needs much more than a tweak.

Incumbent Emanuel Cleaver thinks Obamacare is just fine, and believes it just needs a little 'tweak'.

 

Time for Change.

 

Protect our National Security and Sovereignty

Jacob Turk believes our national security is compromised with porous borders and ports. Ebola, drugs, terrorism and criminals can all cross our borders as the situation stands now. Once our borders are secured, Mr. Turk will work to fix our broken immigration system.

Incumbent Emanuel Cleaver is comfortable with open borders and amnesty.

 

Time for Change.

 

Support our Military Forces and Veterans

Jacob Turk is a Marine veteran who will stand up for our men and women in uniform now and those who have served in the past. Less than 20% of those currently in Congress have served in the military, and it shows in the decisions in DC that affect our military and veterans. Mr. Turk will work tirelessly to address issues at the Kansas City VA. He will insist that there be a true national security interest before the blood of our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters is put in danger. The President must make a case and be prepared for victory when asking Congress to send troops or I will vote no.

Our military and veterans are not a photo op. We are men and women of flesh and blood who stood up to defend this country even to our last breath and deserve to be treated with dignity.

 

Time for Change.

 

Leadership. Not Politics.

James Garfield, the 12th President of the United States said:


"Now more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and corruption. If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature."
