The Combat Veterans For Congress PAC is endorsing the 136th endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress in the last 11 years, Rear Admiral Ronny L. Jackson, USN (Ret) (MC).  RAdm Jackson is a fiscally conservative Congressman who will work to reduce the national debt, and will focus on reining in the out of control spending by irresponsible members of Congress.  RAdm Jackson will support the Trump Administrations initiatives to unleash the private sector to increase economic growth, create new jobs, and stimulate private sector business investment.  RAdm Jackson resides in Amarillo, Texas and is a 28-year veteran of the US Navy having served in the US Navy Medial Corps.  RAdm Jackson is seeking the Republican nomination to run for an open seat in the 13th Congressional District of Texas, which was vacated by thirteen term Congressman Mac Thornberry who is retiring.

RAdm Jackson will oppose the far-left members of Pelosi’s Radical Progressive Caucus who support and promote Socialist and Marxist initiatives, they are opposed to the principles established in the US Constitution by the Founding Fathers.  Pelosi and her far-left Radical Caucus backed the Fast Track Trans-Pacific Trade Bill (TPP), which ceded US sovereignty to an international tribunal, they supported sequestration that hollowed out the US Armed Forces, they support the Socialist Common Core agenda which eliminated the accurate US History once taught in public schools, supports the Democrats “Open Border” policy to allow millions of Illegal Aliens to simply walk across a wide-open border, and support Sanctuary Cities.

RAdm Jackson will oppose Pelosi’s radical Democrats in Congress voted against cutting taxes, against a balanced budget, against closing the wide-open southern border, against support for Israel, and against the National Defense Act.  Additionally, Pelosi’s allies in Congress voted for the impeachment of President Trump, for late term abortions, for the Paris Climate Accord, restoring net neutrality, a job killing carbon tax, federal funding for abortions, voted to restrict gun rights granted by the 2nd Amendment, voted to give 1.2 million Illegal Aliens amnesty (regardless if they were criminal convicts), voted for HR 5-the Equality Act (that eliminates civil rights protections for women), eliminates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and allows males who became transgender females to unfairly compete against women in sports competition.

RAdm Jackson will oppose Pelosi’s far left Progressive/Socialist Caucus in the House of Representatives that includes Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rep Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Rep Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).  They support the sweeping “New Green Deal”; a Radical Marxist program proposed by Rep Ocasio-Cortez, at a cost of $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household, according to a study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.  Pelosi and the 4 above listed congresswomen also proposed the elimination of all private and business health insurance, to be replaced by a government controlled Universal Health Care program, which according to the nonpartisan Mercatus Center at George Washington University, would cost of $36 trillion, or approximately $232,258 per household.
