Stand with Mike to protect the 2nd Amendment
CREATING JOBS FOR ALL HOOSIERS
Government is not the driver of new job creation or economic prosperity. And too often it gets in the way with onerous regulations and sky-high taxes. President Trump’s work to remove burdensome red tape and lower taxes for families and businesses are a start, but now is the time to double down on empowering the private sector and job creators.
We need a tax code that is simple and fair. We must repeal Obamacare, not repair it, to rein in costs and expand healthcare options. And we must ensure that American jobs are filled by American workers, not outsourced to other countries or given to illegal immigrants.
Mike’s Jobs Plan:
- Make the Trump tax cuts permanent and continue simplifying the tax code
- Ensure Indiana jobs are filled by American citizens through programs like e-Verify
- Build upon the $18 billion rollback in regulatory costs and allow businesses to focus on creating jobs not burdensome red tape
- Invest wisely into improving infrastructure, in both urban and rural communities, to help move goods and services through Indiana more efficiently

DRAIN THE SWAMP
Washington is chock full of politicians who talk a slick game, but comes up empty when it comes to getting real results. These politicians have done nothing to increase the prosperity and safety of our families and instead rigged the system to benefit the politically connected and themselves.
To make Washington work again, the swamp must be drained. Career politicians from both parties need to be replaced with citizen legislators with real world experience who will always put the interest of Hoosier families and businesses first. And we must pass term limits for politicians now.
Mike’s Plan to Clean Up Government
- Enact Term Limits for politicians to crack down on corruption and bring fresh perspectives to Washington
- Ban retiring legislators from becoming lobbyists for five years after holding elected office
- Confirm constitutional conservatives to ensure that judges enforce the law, not make it
Stand with Mike to drain the swamp
Obamacare is an unmitigated disaster for Hoosier families and businesses. Despite the promises of Washington politicians, premiums went up, families lost their doctors, and insurance options disappeared. There is no repairing this broken law; the only option is to repeal and replace every word and regulation.
Rather than a top-down, government-run healthcare system, Mike Braun believes in common sense alternatives that will reduce costs and increase access to care. These include allowing individuals to purchase insurance across state lines and allowing small businesses to pool together to purchase insurance at lower prices.
Mike Won’t Wait for Washington to Take on Healthcare
- Took on the insurance companies to fix healthcare for his employees
- Held premiums flat for ten years for his employees
- Covered pre-existing conditions with no lifetime caps before Obamacare
In his own business, Mike showed real leadership on healthcare, not just talk. Mike is ready to bring his proven record of finding solutions to fight for better healthcare options for all Hoosiers.

REDUCE GOVERNMENT SPENDING
Washington’s out of control spending must be stopped. The big spending politicians from both parties are mortgaging our future. Due to their failures to get serious about budget deficits, the national debt stands at more than $20 trillion – that’s $70,000 for every American citizen!
It’s time to force Washington politicians to get their fiscal house in order by reining in spending and balancing the budget just as every Hoosier family and business does. To ensure Congress gets this done, there should be no pay for politicians if Washington does not pass a budget.
Mike’s Plan to Fix the Debt
- Pass a constitutional amendment requiring Congress to balance the budget just like Indiana families and businesses do
- Pass the “No Budget, No Pay Act” which would stop payments to Members of Congress if the budget is not balanced
- Justify how every taxpayer dollar is spent
Stand with Mike to reign in government spending
PROTECT OUR BORDERS
The single most important obligation our government has is to protect its citizens. But for decades, the Congress has failed to meet this duty by refusing to address the southern border, allowing illegal immigrants and illicit drugs to pour into our communities.
The time for inaction is over. President Trump was right. We must act immediately to secure the border by building a wall, crack down on criminal illegal immigrants and the Sanctuary Cities that protect them, end chain migration, and demand that every business verifies the immigration status of its workers to protect American workers.
Mike’s Plan for Strong Border Security
- Build the wall and enforce immigration laws
- Ban federal funding from flowing to sanctuary cities
- Require businesses check the immigration status of prospective employees
- Crackdown on criminal gangs like MS-13, who bring illicit drugs and crime to our communities
Stand with Mike to keep our borders strong
STRENGTHEN OUR MILITARY AND HONOR OUR VETERANS
From North Korea to Russia, despots and dictators are increasing instability and danger throughout the world. To combat the rising tide of uncertainty, a strong American military is needed more than ever before. Mike Braun supports making sure our troops have the tools and equipment they need to protect America’s interests abroad and defeat ISIS terrorists where they live.
Mike will also work to continue President Trump’s work to reform the VA to better meet our healthcare commitments to those who have bravely served our country. Mike will champion efforts to reduce wait times at VA clinics, allow veterans to receive care closer to home, and increase and improve mental health services for veterans.
Mike’s Plan for the Military and Veterans
- Continue investing in efforts to rebuild the military after eight-years of neglect during the Obama Administration
- Never back down to despots, dictators, and rogue nation states like Iran who wish to do us harm
- Modernize and streamline inefficiencies at the VA to improve care for veterans
- Help veterans suffering with PTSD receive mental health treatment
Stand with Mike to strengthen our military and honor our veterans
THE RIGHT TO LIFE
Mike Braun is a father of four grown children and many grandchildren. The right to life is deeply important to him and in the Senate Mike will support legislation that says that life begins at conception.
