Rep. Marlin Stutzman has been a strong conservative leader in the House of Representatives. Throughout his many moments of leadership, there are two key moments that impressed LLPH tremendously.
First, during the Farm Bill debate, Rep. Stutzman worked tirelessly to separate the farm subsidies from the food stamps. For many years, food stamps have been included in the Farm Bill although they have nothing to do with farming. He was successful in separating the two parts in the Farm Bill, but unfortunately, the two parts were recombined in the Conference Report. Rep. Stutzman, a farmer, voiced his opposition to the Farm Bill Conference Report: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ducOYooe5A. He was the only House Republican from Indiana to have such courage.
Second, Rep. Stutzman fought to defeat Obamacare and supports the full repeal of the bill. When many Republicans buckled on Obamacare, Rep. Stutzman was one of the few to fight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4IuZ9kq5Gg.
Rep. Stutzman recently opposed the No Child Left Behind Reauthorization (Every Child Achieves Act of 2015), has stood firm against many continuing resolutions, thousand page omnibus bills, and has been a leader against wasteful spending.
Rep. Stutzman voted against Speaker Boehner after the CRomnibus surrender, which prevented the new Republican majorities from voting on a more conservative budget.
This seat is an open senate seat due to Senator Dan Coats (R) announcing his retirement. Rep. Stutzman’s chief opponent in the primary, Rep. Todd Young, was elected in 2010 like Rep. Stutzman. But the difference between the two of them could not be clearer. Rep. Young voted for the CRomnibus, massive omnibus bills, the continuing resolutions, the wasteful Farm Bill and highway bill which included the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. Their scores reflect this distinction: Rep. Stutzman holds a solid B while Rep. Young holds a solid F. Rep. Stutzman’s other opponent is a Washington Insider with ties to the establishment.
Therefore, LLPH is proud and honored to endorse a man of principle, a representative of the people, and a TRUE LIBERTY CONSERVATIVE Rep. Marlin Stutzman for election in 2016 to represent Indiana in the 115th Congress!
