ISSUES

Healthcare:

As a former healthcare advisor in Congress who worked to stop Obamacare, Amanda believes business owners and individuals should make their own healthcare choices, not the federal government. Obamacare was marketed as a way to lower healthcare costs as its name, “Affordable Care Act” suggests, but it is nowhere near affordable for many Americans, and is yet another onerous federal government mandate.

COVID-19:

Amanda believes that federal agencies like the NIH should allow drugs like Ivermectin to be accessible and healthcare providers should not be reprimanded for prescribing these drugs to patients with COVID. Amanda believes there are remedies on the market right now for people who make the personal decision to not get vaccinated and that these remedies are safe and effective. In the case of prescription Ivermectin, the drug was first approved in 1981 and the scientist who created it won a Nobel peace prize in 2015 for curing river blindness with Ivermectin.

 

Afghanistan:

President Biden and his Defense Department have proven to be an abject failure in their withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. We need a real leader, and for his inaction on  Afghanistan, President Biden should be impeached.

 

Labor/Workforce Shortage:

Pinellas County, a largely service-based economy with tourism as its lifeblood, has been struggling to find workers. Restaurants and hotels are unable to hire workers because they are competing with the federal government who is paying people to sit at home. When the federal government competes with private business, private business will always lose. We must stop the payments to people and get our economy going again by stopping perverse incentives to not work.

Pro-Guns:

Amanda is a conceal and carry permit holder in the state of Florida and a staunch advocate for the Second Amendment. As her mother was a victim of a fatal home-invasion, Amanda believes that the government should never stand between you and your constitutional right to protect yourself and your family.

 

Pro-Life:

Amanda was a speaker at the 2021 Tampa Bay March for Life rally and as a Baptist, is pro-life and fully supports the Hyde Amendment to keep taxpayer funds from paying for abortion services.

Election Integrity:

As an election attorney for the last six election cycles, Amanda was also a Trump volunteer attorney in Wisconsin in November during the recount where she fought for mail-in ballots that were missing required witness attestation or signatures to not be counted in the recount. See Amanda’s live update video from Wisconsin:

Southern Border Crisis:

Amanda is the only Congressional candidate in this race to have visited the southern border and toured the 3 miles left for completion of the border wall and where all the materials are bought and paid-for, but can’t be put up because President Biden refuses to allow for it. As the only legal-immigrant in this race, she believes that we are a nation of laws and that  our laws must be adhered to. Customs and Border Patrol is looking the other way when it comes to illegal crossings and is allowing for illegals to come into the U.S. See Amanda’s border visit video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLyWzpYAfnA&t=17s

 

Critical Race Theory:

Amanda believes that Critical Race Theory is racist, that it pits American against American, and agrees with Governor DeSantis who has banned its teaching in our schools.

Mandates for Vaccines:

Individuals should make the decision that is best for them. The government should never force people to be vaccinated or mandate vaccines.
