Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Reforma migratoria: asegurar todas las fronteras de EE. UU. y deportar todos los criminales ilegales.
  • Traer empleos al Distrito 15 para reducir la congestión. ¿Por qué Apple, Google, Facebook y otras grandes compañías de Silicon Valley no pueden expandirse en East Bay? Se debe traer de regreso la fabricación y reducir la reglamentación.
  • Responsabilidad fiscal: ya no podemos pasar por alto o ignorar el impacto de la deuda fiscal.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (5)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Respuesta de Rudy L. Peters, Jr.:

We can take advantage of the unique opportunity to partner with the federal government and capitalize on the nation-wide infrastructure rebuilding plan being enacted by the new administration in Washington. Part of that plan includes an investment of $200 billion in federal funding (leading to approx. $1.5 trillion in total investment at the state, local, and private level). And even better, much of the decision-making around these investments will be returned to state and local governments. Along with this, the infrastructure plan will also eliminate the usual regulatory barriers which have previously prevented most infrastructure projects from being completed efficiently (i.e. on time and under budget—a rare thing in California these days).

Taking all the above in consideration, we need representatives in Washington who will work to accomplish what we—the residents of the 15th district—feel is most important for us. As your elected representative, I will work to secure funding to accomplish the following improvements:

  • Relieving congestion in the 15th District: Highways 680, 880, and 238.
  • Creation of a BART extension to Livermore and the Central Valley.
  • Expanding our vital water supplies. (Lest we forget, water = food and jobs.)
  • Improving our highway interchanges.
  • Improving and upgrading our electrical grid.
  • Working to cut the permitting process and repeal outdated regulations.

We need to take a fresh look at California regulations that benefit no one but bureaucrats and result in slow approvals for projects that would strengthen California's economy and way of life. It’s no secret our infrastructure is falling behind because of the failure to update and maintain systems that were built and implemented 50 years ago. Our economic success depends on the efficiency and quality of our transportation, water, and energy systems.

If elected, one of my top priorities will be to secure the necessary funding and regulatory reform necessary to bring California’s infrastructure up-to-date. After all, California now has the 6th largest economy on the planet. Isn’t it time we took steps to ensure that it also has a robust and reliable infrastructure worthy of its economic prowess?

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Rudy L. Peters, Jr.:

Healthcare reform should lower costs, raise care quality, and ensure basic health services for all Americans.  Reform must cover pre-existing conditions and low-income families. It should give states flexibility to solve local issues. It must stress the central role of the private sector. We should build on the current health care system and avoid restrictive single-payer systems. New coverage types, such as health care sharing (members share bills), should be promoted. Consumer choice must range from full coverage to catastrophic plans.  New plans such as concierge care (flat fees for doctor visits) increase access. Medical device taxes must be eliminated. Firms can then shift tax savings into research that may lower treatment cost. Malpractice laws should be changed to reduce costs. Prescription drug costs must be addressed. Companies sell new drugs overseas at a fraction of the price Americans pay.  We must make fair pricing of drugs a top trade priority to lower U.S. prices.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House.
Respuesta de Rudy L. Peters, Jr.:

Firt Priority: Protecting our nation's borders—land, air, and sea—from the illegal entry of people, weapons, drugs, and contraband is vital to our homeland security and economic prosperity. Second: Empower Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to first deport those with serious criminal records. Third: Bi-partisanship plan for dealing with DACA and illegal immigrants already here in the U.S.



Question 4

What programs or legislation would you support to meet the water needs of Californians and the federal water project infrastructure in California?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
According to a "Civility In America” survey, 75% of Americans believe that the U.S. has a major civility problem. If you are elected what will do to address this?
Respuesta de Rudy L. Peters, Jr.:

Until we stop the pattern of neglect and the denial of basic humanity toward our neighbors, our great country will remain divided.  Elected officials and Leaders need to set an example in civility.
