As a successful entrepreneur, executive, and small business advocate, Neese has spent 31 years in the private sector creating and finding jobs for men and women. Recognizing the challenges facing job creators and workers here in Oklahoma and across the nation, Neese will put her experience to work to help President Trump unleash our economy’s true potential. First and foremost, Neese believes we must continue to pass long-overdue reforms to simplify our nation’s outdated tax code. It is also critical that the federal government continues to cut burdensome, job-killing regulations so business owners can focus on what they do best – creating jobs, growing their business, and strengthening our economy.
One of the most pressing issues facing our nation today is illegal immigration and our inability to secure our borders. Since President Trump took office, a good deal of progress has been made to end illegal immigration – but more must be done to stop the influx of drugs, violence, and crime across our borders.
Neese’s top priority in Congress will be helping President Trump fund the border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. While Democrats in Congress play politics with our national security, Neese will always put the well-being of the American people first. In addition to building the wall, Neese will stand proudly with federal law enforcement, specifically I.C.E., to ensure they have the funding and support they need to keep our nation secure and enforce federal immigration law across the country.
The future of our country relies on a federal government that practices fiscal responsibility and does not burden the next generation with crippling national debt. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to elect Representatives to Congress who will value each and every tax dollar our government spends and ensure we’re cutting wasteful and inefficient government programs at every opportunity.
As Congresswoman for the 5th District, Terry will stand up to radical politicians who support socialist, big-government policies that would cost taxpayers trillions of dollars and put forward fiscally responsible policies to help balance the budget and reign in government spending.
Obamacare was not a solution to the healthcare problem in America; instead, it made things worse. The so-called “Affordable Care Act” drove health insurance premiums through the roof, killed jobs, and reduced hours for workers across the nation.
Neese will make sure Republicans keep their promise to the American people by completely repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a patient-focused system that cuts healthcare costs, expands access to quality-care, and encourages medical innovation. Neese will also fight to protect Medicare for seniors and ensure our society’s most vulnerable have access to Medicaid programs and other reliable healthcare options when they need it most.
Neese is 100%, unapologetically pro-life and will stand up to any politician in Washington who supports the senseless murder of children. In Congress, Neese will champion pro-life policies and fight to defund Planned Parenthood and any organization that promotes abortion throughout the country or abroad.
Terry Neese is a proud gun owner and member of the NRA who believes there are few things more important than protecting our constitutional right to bear arms. Neese will not allow the Left to continue criminalizing law-abiding gun owners in a desperate attempt to destroy our Constitutional freedoms.
In Congress, Neese will be a strong advocate for the gun owners, sportsmen, and sportswomen of Oklahoma by supporting pro-gun policies such as the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act. She will always stand up for the American people to ensure we have the freedom to arm and protect ourselves.
The federal government must do everything possible to ensure our veterans have access to the healthcare and support they need when they need it most. That starts by implementing long-overdue reforms and policies that create a more accountable and transparent Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Neese is proud of the progress made by the Trump Administration to protect whistleblowers within the VA, to address the high rate of suicide amongst veterans, and to expand veteran access to private healthcare providers. In Congress, Neese will be a strong advocate for veterans of the 5th District by supporting more of these critical reforms and making sure her office is always available to assist our nation’s heroes.
It is no secret that Washington is divided, and both parties have allowed political infighting to stand in the way of progress. Regardless of what Party is in control of the House, there are many issues we can find common ground on to deliver real solutions for the American people – and rebuilding our infrastructure is one of them.
Neese recognizes that access to reliable and safe infrastructure has a direct and positive impact on our economy. Working with members of both Parties in Washington, Neese will seek to simplify the federal approval process for infrastructure projects to ensure we have the ability to make speedy and cost-effective repairs to our crumbling roads and bridges. Neese will also support policies that seek to modernize outdated technologies in rural communities so every American has access to the tools and resources they need to achieve success.
