On The Issues
Born and raised in rural Kansas, Senator Jerry Moran understands the meaning of a hard day’s work and the importance of Kansas conservative values - God, country, family, and freedom. Jerry holds these values near and dear to his heart and continues to rely on them. In the Senate, Jerry worked with President Trump to deliver tax cuts for our families, fairer trade deals for our farmers, resources for law enforcement officers, and protected our conservative values.
Now, he’s taking on Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and the radical Left’s socialist agenda. He has helped lead the charge in the U.S. Senate to stop a federal takeover of our elections and been a vocal opponent of H.R. 1. As your Senator, Jerry will continue to put Kansas first.
Throughout his entire career in public service, Jerry has used his voice and his vote to defend the unborn and protect life at all stages. Jerry was instrumental in electing a Republican Senate majority that went on to confirm hundreds of federal judges and multiple Supreme Court justices who respect the Constitution and every American’s inherent right to life. He is proudly endorsed by Kansans For Life PAC, the leading pro-life grassroots organization in the state.
Now, Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress are determined to remove the longstanding Hyde Amendment and use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States and abroad. Jerry strongly opposes any attempt by Washington politicians to use American tax dollars on abortion and will continue to fight for the rights of the unborn.
Jerry is proud to support the Value Them Both Amendment to the Kansas Constitution, which will protect the state’s existing, bi-partisan supported abortion regulations. The Value Them Both Amendment will also correct a 2019 Kansas Supreme Court ruling that endangers even the most basic limits on the abortion industry.
Jerry worked with President Trump to build the wall at our southern border and curb illegal immigration. Now, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, and the radical Left want to erase all the Trump Administration’s good work to keep our communities safe by opening our borders to illegal immigrants. Biden’s policies and rhetoric have created a crisis at our southern border.
Now, MS-13 gang members, human traffickers, sex offenders, and even terrorists are trying to take advantage of the opportunity and enter the country. Thanks to Joe Biden, every town has become a border town. That’s why Jerry is fighting back against the radical Left. He supported President Trump’s America First agenda to build the wall, enact the Remain in Mexico program, and ending the catch-and-release policy.
As Chairman of the Veteran Affairs Committee, Jerry worked closely with President Trump to enact the most meaningful piece of veterans' legislation in years, the Veterans Choice Act. The law greatly expanded the number of options and choices available to our veterans to receive critical healthcare. Jerry is the longest-serving Republican member of the Veterans Affairs Committee in both the House and the Senate.
Jerry has led the charge to "Back the Blue" in the Senate as the lead Republican member in charge of funding for the Department of Justice. Jerry has vocally fought against the defund the police movement that liberals in Congress have championed and Jerry has been successful in ensuring law enforcement personnel have the resources they need to protect Kansans.
There’s no truer saying than “farmers feed the world.” As a lifelong Kansan, Jerry understands the importance of our agriculture industry. That’s why he’s helped write farm bills that support our farmers, ranchers, and producers. He worked with President Trump to hold Communist China accountable for its unfair trade practices. And now, he’s taking on the Biden Administration and pushing back against their regulatory agenda.
Just like he did when Obama was in office, Jerry is pushing back against Biden’s Waters of the United States rule. He has also vocally opposed Biden’s 30x30 plan and elimination of the stepped-up basis tax which could deal a crushing blow to family farms. Jerry will always advocate for the farmers, ranchers, and producers who make up our Kansas agriculture industry.
Jerry worked with President Trump to deliver one of the strongest economies our country has ever seen. Jerry supported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that cut taxes for American families and lowered our corporate tax rate so we can compete with other countries. He also worked with President Trump to eliminate costly and burdensome regulations so our businesses can grow and create more jobs.
Now, Joe Biden and the radical Left are undoing all of Jerry and President Trump’s work by pushing their socialist agenda. Joe Biden has killed jobs, stifled growth, and continues to threaten to raise taxes to pay for his reckless growth of government. At home in Kansas, Jerry has made it a top priority to enhance Wichita’s position as “Air Capital of the World.” We need to get back to an agenda of lower taxes, fewer regulations, and more freedom. That’s exactly what Jerry is working on doing in the Senate.
Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and the radical Left are attacking our Kansas values. They want taxpayer-funded abortions, restrictions on our God-given rights, like the Second Amendment, and they want to defund the police. That’s wrong. Kansans support the right to life, religious freedom, and the United States Constitution.
Throughout his years in public service, Jerry has worked to defend the unborn, oppose Critical Race Theory, and protect our constitutional rights from the Democrats’ relentless attacks. Additionally, Jerry strongly supports our Kansas law enforcement officers - he’s proud to back the blue. In office, Jerry will always protect and promote our Kansas conservative values.
President Trump and his administration strengthened our national security and supported our allies, like Israel. Jerry worked with President Trump to hold Communist China accountable for its unfair trade practices and for spreading COVID-19 across the world. He supported President Trump’s withdrawal from one-sided deals President Obama made with other countries - like the Paris Climate Agreement and the Iran Nuclear Deal. Additionally, Jerry applauded President Trump’s decision to move our U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, strengthening our relationship with our critical ally in the Middle East.
Now, Joe Biden is resorting back to the Obama playbook and agreeing to one-sided deals that help everyone but the United States and kowtowing to Communist China’s demands. In office, Jerry will continue to hold the Biden Administration accountable, fight to strengthen our national security, and support our allies.
