Laique on the Issues


Federal deficit for 2020 will exceed $1.1 trillion. I consider this as one of the greatest threats facing our nation. Like any business, we need to cut costs across the board and shut down some Federal Programs including some Departments. We need to restore competition in all sectors of the economy by protecting small and mid-size business…. nothing is too big to fail.


District 7 is one of the affluent districts in the country and yet we were one of the worst flood victims when Hurricane Harvey struck Houston. I will work across the aisle to ensure the funds collected from the District are spent to improve the infrastructure of the district and our great State of Texas. Similarly as our exports Oil and Gas and downstream products grow we need to improve the infrastructure including Ports and Waterways that are used for exporting our products.


I will work relentlessly to support President Trumps agenda to modernize our military. I fully support the president in not getting into endless wars and use the money to modernize our military and improve the support for the veterans.


I have been working for decades in the oil and gas industry and passionately believe that future of Texas jobs rely on this Industry. Lizzie Fletcher and her green colleagues are working towards banning fracking and killing this industry. Small business remains the largest employer in the US. For the record our Shale Oil and Gas was not developed by large oil majors but by smaller outfits. I will work to protect the creativity and ingenuity of our small business. I will support our President to keep taxes low. I also propose removing taxes from retirement savings after retirement. Pledge to be tax payers best friend in Washington.


Having worked for decades in the frontlines of American trade selling US products for a living I understand the importance of fair trade. I will work relentlessly to remove obstacles facing US products and services when they enter other countries. Countries all over the world want access to our markets similarly we need fair access for US goods and services to these markets.


We need to do more for protecting family’s safety and education. Education need not end after high school. American workforce will needs to be constantly educated and retooled to compete in the global economy.


We are a country of immigrants. I will work to support President Trumps agenda of supporting merit based immigration systems and stop the flow of illegal immigrants.


Obamacare is destroying the concept of old fashioned small practice by removing the competition and making health care unaffordable. I believe all policies should be free market related.


I believe in the protection of our second amendment rights.
