What Jay stands for and what he wants to achieve
Lower property taxes.
According to the Illinois Policy Institute the Residents of Chicago’s Western Suburbs pay the highest property taxes in the state and some of the highest in the country. www.illinoispolicy.org.
Lower income taxes.
In May of 2017 the Democrat controlled Illinois legislature passed a massive 32% income tax hike. This latest hike is burdening already struggling Illinois families with more taxes to pay.
Supporting core services.
We need to help support those in our state in the most need by efficiently and adequately providing services for them. We need to also give them the tools to help them become self-reliant.
Getting the job done in more efficient ways is the reason to elect a new, energetic individual such as Gordon “Jay” Kinzler. No position should be taken for granted and in the case of career politicians, it becomes evident that current incumbents need to be challenged in order for progress to be made.
Jay is a strong proponent of fiscal responsibility. Balanced budgets, limits on spending, smart use of funds, analysis and accountability are key issues. Through experience of running his own practice and serving in several local government and association posts, Jay has been able to set an example by maintaining high quality service while balancing budgets.
As a medical doctor and surgeon, Jay has an authentic understanding of the healthcare system in the United States. Through first-hand experience, he believes that doctors should have an active role in determining the future of healthcare. Doctors should be able to advocate for their patients in regards to medical care they receive. There needs to be more choice, personalized care and less bureaucracy.
Jay himself is a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve and serves at Fort Benning. Kinzler is an advocate for veteran programs that provide services for returning vets. He firmly believes we are obligated to make sure veterans are provided with services in return for heroic defense of the United States of America.
JAY ON KEY POLICY ISSUES
As a committed Christian, my faith has played an important role in who I am and the life that I lead. Judeo-Christian values are an integral part of America’s founding, and emphasizing them in the future will ensure America finds its way once again.
Since its founding, immigration has been a gift to America. However, there is a real and immediate need to enforce laws regulating foreign nationals entering our nation. This begins with securing our borders and deporting aliens who are felons.
Our current labor participation rate in September of 2017 is 63.1%, a 38-year low. Jobs are desperately needed in this lagging economy. Unfortunately, our over-grown government is usually the biggest enemy of job creators.
Once elected, I will work to cut burdensome regulations and taxes and thereby help unleash the free market to put as many unemployed and underemployed Americans to work as possible.
Education decisions should be made locally between parents, teachers, and students. A child’s education should never be a cookie-cutter proposition dictated by a distant federal bureaucrat.
Our nation has been gifted with incredible endowment of natural resources. Americans need to utilize these resources in the present, and have a moral obligation to preserve them for future generations.
Sanctity of Life
I am pro-life.
I own firearms not just for recreational purposes, but to protect my family against criminals and government tyranny. The right for Americans to keep and bear arms must not be infringed.
Our world has been significantly improved by increased levels of trade, especially during the last century. America must encourage trade, and confront those who sabotage its free practice.
As a physician, I know first-hand the troubled state of our nation’s healthcare system. Obamacare has been a complete failure, and has only grown the problems we had already.
We must get government off the back of the healthcare community, and allow the free interaction of doctors and patients to facilitate the best system the world has ever known.
All people are endowed by God with natural rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
