Issues

Securing the Border

Because the federal government has failed when it comes to securing our border, Charles Schwertner fought to pass legislation that gives law enforcement additional resources to crack down on drug cartels, terrorists and human smugglers. He also co-authored the sanctuary cities ban to keep our communities safe.

Protecting Private Property

Charles Schwertner passed landmark legislation that permanently protects the private property rights of all Texans against eminent domain abuse. For his leadership on private property rights, the Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND has endorsed Schwertner.

Defending Life and Liberty

As a constitutional conservative, Charles is a steadfast defender of our God-given constitutional rights; specifically our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. He is committed to the protection of innocent human life and passed legislation that prohibits dismemberment abortions and the selling of fetal tissue.

Defending the Second Amendment

Charles Schwertner is a staunch defender of the 2nd Amendment and has been “A” rated and endorsed by the NRA and Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA).

Improving Our Children’s Schools

As the father of three graduates from public schools, Charles Schwertner knows the importance of classroom excellence. He helped pass landmark public education reform that gives students and parents greater flexibility in tailoring a curriculum that supports a student’s individual interests. He also reduced the number of high-stakes, standardized tests from 15 down to 5, so teachers have more time to focus on instruction and education, rather than simply teaching to the test.

Schwertner has also fought to expand schools choice in Texas and provide parents and students with the freedom to decide the setting that best fits their educational needs.

Protecting Seniors from Abuse

As Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee, Charles Schwertner played a leading role in fighting against bad nursing homes in Texas and passed legislation to protect seniors from abuse and neglect.

Protecting Vulnerable Children

Charles Schwertner has worked to protect Texas children by increasing funding for Child Protective Services and fighting to protect children at risk of abuse or neglect.

Fighting Obamacare

Since its passage in 2009, Americans from every walk of life have come face-to-face with the stark realities of Obamacare: millions of health insurance policies cancelled, skyrocketing premiums, rising deductibles, and the frustration felt by anyone attempting to purchase coverage through HealthCare.gov. Obamacare’s top-down, Washington-first mentality has been an unmitigated disaster for the American healthcare system. You deserve the right to make your own healthcare choices, and no government has the right to interject itself between you and your doctor.

As your voice in the Texas Senate, I’ve used my firsthand experience as a physician to fight back against Obamacare and protect the rights of patients. As a diligent steward of our taxpayer dollars, I will continue to fight fraud and abuse in our state’s overburdened Medicaid program.

He should have never closed our State and taken peoples constitutional rights away.

I find the Governor’s plan somewhat disheartening when he just made it easier to get an abortion than to get a haircut. The small mom and pop businesses need to open now not in three weeks . Some will never be able to recover from the Governor’s and the county judges and mayors grab of the rights of the people. Now when anything comes down the pike the mayor will want to shut down some business put not all.

You actually think that’s a good idea ?

Our cases are rising and the adequate test/contain structure isn’t in place This is careless and not a move that is pro life

If Abbott won't reopen Texas, Texas will reopen without Abbott.... #GetAHaircut #ImpeachAbbott #OpenTexasNow

Thank you Governor Abbott!

Too early to reopen. Cases still on the rise. Will you be responsible for more sickness and deaths?

As a doctor, this is an appalling lack of responsibility. There are thousans of asymtomatic carriers out there who can infect a geometric progression of others.

Thanks Gov Abbott!

What about the oath as a physician to do no harm. This is genocide

Guv Anarchist!

Nothing like putting the burden of a pandemic squarely on small business. If they fail now it's all their fault, right? And if they have to let people go? Well, that's just business. And what will you do to help? Well, that's not your problem anymore, is it?

Much safer than the mall

YOU FIRST

I think a phased reopening of the economy makes sense. The economic impact of this closure has been as bad as the physical impact, at least in Texas.

Great!!!

{insert ill-informed typical liberal "plague spread" response here}

Open our salons

I am still staying home.

Thank Goodness!

I just spoke with another Dr.who Said the opposite

Yep now you can go sit in a movie theater but you can’t wear a mask with a barber with a mask and gloves who has always had to disinfect everything between cuts. I’m a staunch conservative but you and Abbott and Patrick are all idiots.
