John McCain Is Rallying Our Party Around Conservative Principles On National Security, Fiscal Responsibility, Health Care Reform And Traditional Values:

NATIONAL SECURITY: John McCain will stay on offense to defeat the threat of radical Islamic extremism. The Democrats have demonstrated no resolve to defeat this threat.

• McCain had the judgment and courage to call for a change in strategy in the war in Iraq – a strategy that is now succeeding. He has vigorously supported Gen. Petraeus' successful strategy, while the Democratic candidates continue to call for retreat.

TAXES AND SPENDING: John McCain will get our economy back on track by cutting taxes, spurring investment and innovation and ending wasteful spending in Washington.

• McCain will cut taxes and stop the outrageous wasteful spending in Washington. McCain will make the Bush tax cuts permanent, eliminate the AMT, and cut taxes on American businesses to help our companies remain competitive. McCain will stop the wasteful and pork barrel spending and enforce the conservative vision of smaller government by vetoing any pork-barrel bill that comes across his desk.

HEALTH CARE: John McCain will reform our health care system using free market solutions to reduce the skyrocketing costs that threaten to implode the system. He will provide all individuals with a refundable $2,500 tax credit ($5,000 for families) as incentive to buy insurance.

TRADITIONAL VALUES: John McCain will protect our traditional values. McCain has a consistent 25-year pro-life record, and believes that Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that should be overturned. McCain believes that the institution of marriage should be protected and defined as a union between one man and one woman. John McCain will nominate strict constructionist judges to the bench.
