Every consumer should have confidence in the safety of all our domestically grown and imported food products. Protecting our food sources is a Governmental responsibility, and the US food protection system must remain the best in the world.
We must allow our future generations of farmers to grow crops free from government regulations that do nothing to support the safety of our food products. In addition, farmers need to be secure in the knowledge that they will not be taxed so drastically that their farm ownership is in jeopardy.
Carmelita Greco supports an America First agenda. That means she supports American citizens, American values, and American owned businesses over a globalist agenda. The American system is the best in the world and that is because of the hard work, ingenuity, and drive for a better life that exists within the American spirit. Those values are unique to us and we must not lose or sacrifice them to “fit in” with a globalist agenda that seeks uniformity and lacks individuality. Carmelita Greco will support policies that put Americans and America FIRST!
Carmelita will be an advocate for fiscal conservatism and decreasing our national debt and dependency on international loans. She will also work to educate our youth on financial literacy in high school and help to promote policies that advocate for affordable lending options. We MUST get control of our spending NOW!
As a Federal representative, she will support the Balanced Budget/Tax Limitation Amendment as well as the ‘Line-Item Veto’. These actions will help to restore fiscal responsibility to an out-of-control Congress. This will require Congress and Washington, as a whole, to live under the same budget constraints we do on a daily basis. We MUST stop the wasteful spending and reduce our nation’s debt that is endangering our quality of life as Americans. This is accomplished by cutting spending, limiting the growth of government below the rate of inflation, and prosecuting wasteful spending and fraud.
Balancing our nation’s budget is the first step in tackling our out of control National Debt! Currently, there is nothing balanced in the spending of Washington. This reckless policy leads to more spending, massive tax increases and less freedom for the middle-class families!
Before COVID-19, our economy was thriving like never before and unemployment was at record lows! Unfortunately, the lockdowns, many which were too stringent, have dealt a severe blow to our economy. Carmelita will work hard to get our economy thriving again!
The virus has showed us how important it is to produce critical supplies, vital to our nation’s health and security in the USA. Carmelita will make this happen with a specific goal of getting these jobs right here in Michigan.
Carmelita will work with President Trump on keeping business
taxes low and continuing to allow businesses to repatriate corporate
She will continue to create an environment which will spur job creation by
eliminating regulatory red tape that is stifling innovation and job growth.Under the Obama administration our national GDP had growth of less than
1.5% per year on the high side. This type of slow growth destroys
opportunity for those either entering, or trying to re-enter the job market.
Furthermore, she will work diligently to defeat tax increases imposed on our Michigan businesses by the former Congress. Carmelita is an advocate for a vibrant economy and free market system.
Carmelita is an advocate for local and parental control in education.
The path to success starts with a high-quality education, but education should always be a state issue. The Federal Government should not take needed funds from tax payers to fund a bloated Federal Governmental Education Department. Instead, those funds should be sent back to the states and the classrooms.
I am a strong supporter of the high standards and local control which will ensure success for our children and our nation’s future!
Liberty and freedom include energy freedom. This includes energy choice and ensuring that America is energy independent. We do not need to purchase our energy from our enemies or from countries that spread hate and are anti-freedom and liberty.
As a conservationist, Carmelita supports a clean and safe environment.
Carmelita is passionate about preserving the beauty of the great state of Michigan. Michigan has one-third of the world’s freshwater lakes. She will stand strong to preserve our local resources, keeping them safe from dangerous invasive species that can destroy our wonderful waterways.
It is important that we maintain our environment. Quality clean water is one of the most important gifts we can pass on to our children and future generations.
There is a need for certain federal regulations, but some are just another over-reach of government, and those are the regulations I will work to eliminate as a US Representative. For Example, were you aware that the U.S Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics reaches out to employers for current employment statistics and payroll data? This wastes company time, and prevents an efficient use of time and money. This is another duplicitous action from our government, and puts the burden on our employers. I pledge to work to cut unnecessary governmental regulations that do nothing to grow our economy, or keep our citizens safe.
Carmelita Greco supports affordable, accessible care for all Americans that include coverage for pre-existing conditions. She opposes socialized medicine on the premise that Government should not be involved in healthcare decisions between a doctor and patient.
Our children have become a target of modern-day sex slavery. It is a crime that crosses international borders and has become a rising epidemic in this country. Carmelita Greco will work with government committees, schools, and nonprofit organizations to continue to raise awareness about this crime and any other issues that affect the welfare of our children.
As a third-generation American of Mexican/Hungarian ancestry, Carmelita appreciates the diversity of this great nation and it should not separate people with common values. We must protect our citizens and that includes from the illegal activity. We must have clearly defined and secure border to protect our citizens. We should continue to be a country that is a refuge for persons seeking liberty and there is a system for legal immigration for them. America must enforce our immigration laws and that we need strong, secure borders. We also need to protect the most vulnerable victims from drugs, cartels, crime, and human and child sex trafficking.
The test of a moral society is how we value the significance of personhood. Right to Life starts with understanding the sacred nature of life itself by protecting the mother and the unborn child. Every life is valuable and should be honored and protected. Carmelita will stand strong to defeat far-left Democratic policies that support infanticide and abortion up to birth.
Detroit used to be one of the richest cities in the world. Michigan was a national leader in manufacturing, a sought-after place to live. Unfortunately, that all changed when our jobs were shipped overseas and it cost us dearly.
If we have learned anything from COVID-19, it is that we are far too dependent on China. Too many of our medical supplies are manufactured there, making it difficult for hospitals to get what they need to treat patients.
I will work closely with President Trump to bring more manufacturing jobs back to Michigan. We have some of the best and brightest people right here. It’s time to get back to work!
The nation’s most disadvantaged, including children, should receive an efficient health care program that will continue to provide essential services. If Medicaid is left as it is, there will be no safety net for the poor in the future.
The solutions that Carmelita supports include going after those that use and bill Medicaid fraudulently. She also supports giving States the flexibility they have requested to manage the Medicaid programs more effectively and in accordance with what is needed most. This allows for local answers instead of one-size-fits-all solutions from Washington. The needs of Medicaid enrollees in Michigan are very different from those in New Mexico.
Medicaid billing fraud is also a main driver of costs and services. As a U.S. Representative, Carmelita will work to create a billing monitor program for our states and Federal Government to ensure that services are getting to the client, and that the billing is not fraudulent.
We pay into Medicare through our employment tax deductions. Carmelita strongly supports and believes that we need to preserve and protect Medicare for current and future retirees. The Affordable Care Act (aka: Obamacare) cut $716 billion from Medicare, effectively ending it as we know it.
As part of its $716 billion in total cuts to Medicare, Obamacare cuts Medicare Advantage by $156 billion. Of the more than 50 million older Americans who receive coverage through Medicare, about 15 million, or one quarter, are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage is extremely popular for a reason –it is operated through the private market, seniors gain access to high-quality and coordinated care with additional benefits that they otherwise wouldn’t get. The additional benefits include vision, dental, annual physicals, nutrition, wellness programs, and prescription drug coverage. Medicare Advantage beneficiaries are generally younger, lower income, minority and female.
Obamacare’s cuts to Medicare Advantage will lead to fewer of these plans being available to seniors, and they could lose access to their current doctors and additional coverage options they now enjoy.
Washington Democrats voted to cut Medicare. Carmelita’s top priority is preserving and protecting Medicare for seniors and future generations and by giving more choices for our Seniors.
Carmelita Greco is a friend to our allies. She supports our strong relationship with Israel and other allies that have our common interest to promote democracy. Her Nonprofit art foundation actively supports Christian and Jewish artists and encourages bridging cultural gaps with a secular audience to advance dialogue and understanding. She has traveled to Israel and fully supports moving the embassy to Jerusalem.
Our national security, our healthcare, and our businesses are all risk with the amount of prescription drug-related manufacturing that happens outside of US boarders. We must become drug independent. This would mean our drugs, the materials that go into them, and their packaging need to be made in the US by US businesses. This would benefit our economy, healthcare, and national security.
Throughout the Covid-19 crisis, there have been countless attacks on personal liberty thru excessive executive orders that were not individually tailored.
While I fully support common sense measures to help us get through the crisis safely, we can not do it at the expense of our freedoms. I will fight tirelessly to protect freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and personal liberties in Washington D.C.
Carmelita Greco supports enforcement along our borders and will work to stop sanctuary cities. Sanctuary cities should be defunded, and any office holder that defies current law should be held legally responsible.
Carmelita Greco is Pro-2nd Amendment, and believes that it guarantees the individual right to bear arms. She supports the rights to self-defense, sporting, conservation/hunting, as well as collecting of weapons.
The right to bear arms was enacted to prevent tyranny, government take-over by force, and that is still relevant today. Americans have the right to protect their families, property, and freedoms. Carmelita will uphold the 2nd amendment.
Furthermore, she will uphold Americans’ Second Amendment rights at every level of our judicial system.
As a small business owner of a private fashion label, Carmelita understands the risk and rising cost of starting and maintaining a small business. Most Americans work for small businesses. The individuals and families that operate small businesses are not just employers but leaders in our communities. Carmelita will be an advocate for lower taxes and less unnecessary regulations that are most time-consuming and expensive for small businesses. She will be an advocate for small business and entrepreneurship. That is the backbone of our small towns and cities.
Social Security is a fund that we all pay into; therefore, it is OUR money, and not the Federal Government’s to spend and use.
Carmelita firmly support its preservation, and will protect, Social Security for retirees. She will work to ensure that the program remains solvent for future generations. Period. She also believes we should repeal all tax hikes on Social Security benefits, and is committed to regular cost of living adjustments (COLA) to fulfill our promise to seniors. The government must learn to live within its means without the financial theft from the taxpayer.
Each year, Americans spend hundreds of billions of dollars on tax lawyers, accountants and other costs associated with tax compliance because our tax code is too long and too complex. Every special interest has a loop-hole. There is no question that our current system needs to be simplified, and instead of growing Government and the National Debt, we should be focused on growing the economy.
Carmelita strongly believe that it’s not that we have a national income problem. We have a national spending problem.
As the Representative from Michigan, she will not be interested in being liked. She is more interested in being respected and standing up for individual freedom and economic growth. She agrees with President Reagan when he said, “You can’t be for Big Regulations, Big Taxes and Big Government, and still be for the Little Guy!”
Carmelita Greco supports free market trade, free enterprises, and
economic freedom. America has had great prosperity under our current
system of free market capitalism that has offered any willing person the
equal opportunity to succeed. She was raised in a single parent,
economically challenged home for most of my early years. Through this
great free market economy, she was able to work hard and seek the
knowledge necessary to attain financial prosperity. She later started my
career as a financial consultant, learning the benefits of free market trade
that supplies the best-priced goods and services for the consumer. She will
make it a point to educate the next generation on free, ethical trade, and
how history has proven the success of this system. She will stand strong
against the plans of socialist economic systems that will lead to shortages
and rationed goods and services.
American workers can compete with anyone in the world, as long as they
are playing by the same rules.
Carmelita does not support trade deals, or tax incentives that ship
American jobs overseas. Federal bureaucrats should NOT be in charge of
picking winners and losers when it comes to trade policy and tariffs. She
supports free trade, but it must be fair and not just ‘free’ in title only. More
importantly, Carmelita will NEVER support a trade deal that poses a threat
to American National Security.
Prior to the Trump administration, businesses in the United States were
taxed higher than in any developed nation in the world. Our current
administration has renegotiated our trade deals thru the USMCA and China
agreement and is creating a climate for economic success. Carmelita will
partner with our current administration to keep our trade deals fair and
beneficial for American businesses.
Carmelita Greco supports innovative and cost-effective ways to improve the nation’s infrastructure. The proper utilization of our resources to provide a safe, modern and efficient transportation systems is critical to improving the quality of life of our citizens, strengthens our economy and is what the Federal Government should be doing with our tax dollars. We must work on redeveloping our infrastructure without raising taxes or increasing greater debt.
Defending the rights of veteran’s is a priority. Carmelita will enact policies that make it easier for veterans to find jobs and reenter the workforce. We must also continue to advance and enact accountability reforms so that veterans receive quality and responsive healthcare.
