As an immigrant from Laos who fled during the Vietnam war, May Lor Xiong believes that…
”Our American Dreams are under attack by the Left. In the name of Equity.”
“After seeking refuge in the Ban Vinai refugee camp in Thailand, we emigrated to America in 1987 to a better life. We did not know what would happen to us, and we were terrified of what the future may hold. We learned about the American Dream and pursued it passionately. While I am proud of my Hmong heritage, I am equally proud to be an American (campaign website).”
”Our American Dreams are under attack by the Left. In the name of “equity”, they have diminished American values and destroyed businesses. It breaks my heart to see those dreams disappear in front of me. While not perfect, America is the best! We have come a long way in achieving opportunities for all. Everyone has the right and the chance to pursue their American Dream, whatever that dream might be (campaign website).”
”I decided to run for Congress as a Republican to protect the dreams of each and every
American (campaign website).”
“Everyday Americans pursue their dream of starting their own business to provide for their family and bring opportunities to their communities. The past two years we have seen businesses closed and communities weakened by the government picking winners and losers. The solutions lie in less government not more. Expansion of the Government’s role in our economy erodes small business opportunities and tips this scale towards Wall Street and not Main Street. May will get government out of the way so our American spirit of starting and running a business can be restored to breathe life back into our communities.”
“I believe we must have good common-sense laws to live in a well ordered and safe society and we must support our law enforcement. We must also ensure law enforcement is properly trained and have the proper background so they can equitably enforce laws.”
“Skyrocketing fuel and food prices are the direct result of Washington printing money to counter bad policy. As your Congresswoman, May will put an end to reckless decisions being made in Washington. She will work to grow real wealth in working class homes by expanding opportunity and education and stop politicians from experimenting with social agendas that weaken our economy.”
“A nation without borders cannot truly be a nation at all. We want to encourage people seeking a better life to come to America and celebrate the values of hard work, opportunity and the pursuit of happiness. As a refugee and immigrant to this great nation, May is proud of her citizenship, and she works every day to honor it. Sadly, she sees all too often in our communities and schools the impact that open borders have on families as illegal drugs pour into our communities. We need to secure our borders to end the degradation of our cities, streets, and neighborhoods. We want to honor those who want to become a part of the American story by ensuring we have a system that works to meet the needs of our nation and the values we hold.”
“May believes in the quality of a good education. However, education does not equal indoctrination. Education must give our children the skills they need to survive and thrive in the 21st century in an era of constant change. Education is here to prepare the next generation so we can keep America great. It is not here to serve the needs of any specific constituencies. She will put policy into effect that will strengthen our education system that will empower teachers but must be focusing on the needs of the children and give parents real choices.”
According to Betty McCollum’s campaign website…
“McCollum has been a champion for the environment, universal health care, quality education and economic opportunity.”
Unfortunately, being a “champion for the environment” means that Betty McCollum opposed the Keystone XL Pipeline
This would have transported cheap, affordable oil from Canada to the United States.
This hurt Minnesotans who are now paying $5 for a single gallon of gas.
Additionally, the Keystone XL pipeline would have supported over 10,000 union construction jobs in the U.S. and wages were expected to exceed $2.2 billion…
The project would have provided $10 million in renewable energy job training for union workers and invested a total of $1.7 billion in renewable energy infrastructure.
The Keystone XL committed over $500 million for Indigenous suppliers and employment opportunities for tribal communities.
Universal Healthcare, as Betty knows, is unsustainable.
It’s expensive, inefficient and leads to increased inflation and bloated government spending. But that is what Betty wants, more power in Washington and less in Minnesota.
If she wanted otherwise, she’d vote yes on proven, efficient, solutions to the issues faced by Minnesotan’s in the Fourth Congressional District.
Betty McCollum on the Environment
“I am a proud co-sponsor of the Green New Deal and I will work to ban copper-sulfide mining in the Rainy River watershed…”
This is the same Green New Deal that would cost at least “$10 trillion” according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who introduced the legislation.
It is estimated that this plan would cost between $51 and $93 trillion over 10 years.
This would be catastrophic for inflation. Minnesotans can’t deal with more inflation yet Betty thinks that out-of-control spending is something to brag about.
Betty McCollum’s Hypocrisy on Taxes, Economy, Government Spending, and Inflation
“The 2017 Trump-Republican tax cuts did not receive one Democratic vote. Republicans passed this tax cut that will add at least $1.5 trillion to the national debt…”
Meanwhile, Betty McCollum doesn’t seem to care about adding to the national debt if it furthers her progressive agenda.
In 2021 she voted to add $4.5 trillion to the national debt by spending on Biden’s agenda.
Inflation soared 8.5% in March compared to last year, marking the biggest spike since December 1981.
Paychecks have decreased 2.7% since last year.
This is a direct result of Betty McCollum’s reckless spending sprees.
This is an independent expenditure prepared and paid for by the Republican Party of Minnesota. www.mngop.org. It is not coordinated with or approved by any candidate nor is any candidate responsible for it.
