JIMMY MATLOCK FOR CONGRESS

East Tennessee First

I have a very simple philosophy when it comes to government. Men and women of principle must rise to the challenge of reclaiming our nation’s Capitol to correct the course that’s been set in Washington, DC. If we bring our East Tennessee values to Washington, together, we will reclaim our nation and put East Tennessee first. In recent years, our family has grown deeply concerned with the direction and condition of our nation and culture. We’ve watched with disgust as Washington, DC seems to become more and more of a swamp filled with self-serving career politicians who say one thing to get elected and then act for their own self interests once in office. With your blessing and a lot of prayer, together, we’ll take a stand and put things back on track.

A BLUEPRINT FOR EAST TENNESSEE

ON THE ISSUES

A man is only as good as his word. Anyone who knows me will tell you that when I make a promise, I keep it. Mostly because my wife, Dean, simply won’t allow me to step out of line. Here’s exactly what I’ll do as your next Congressman for the 2nd District. I challenge each and every one of you to hold me accountable. I’m here for you and no one else.

Your Next Congressman

ON JOBS, ECONOMY, DEBT & SPENDING

The American Dream is driven by hard working entrepreneurs.  They have always been and still are the force behind economic growth and job creation.  We don’t need more Washington mandates – we need more freedom, lower taxes, and less regulation to allow individuals and businesses to create jobs and drive the economy. When the government spends irresponsibly, we have less to spend on government’s core responsibilities and we bind future generations to the burden of debt.  We must significantly reduce the size and scope of giant federal bureaucracies that often do far more damage than good to our freedom and liberty.

ON STATES RIGHTS

The Constitution says that functions of government not enumerated in the Constitution should be returned to the states for implementation.  Individuals and communities best understand the needs of their local community and we should empower them.  

ON LIFE, ABORTION & MARRIAGE

As an experienced defender of life, some of my proudest moments have been fighting for those who cannot defend themselves. I am an unwavering believer in the inherent value of all people and a consistent defender of the sanctity of all God-given human life. Of all the endorsements and support I’ve received over the years, the endorsements and support from Tennessee Right to Life have been my most cherished. In Washington DC, Planned Parenthood is still receiving your tax-dollars. I’ll fight to put an end to it! Every life has value, and every vote counts.  I believe that the institution of marriage involves the joining of one man with one woman in a unique way, and I will always fight for the defense of that institution.

ON IMMIGRATION REFORM

Before we enact needed immigration reform, we must begin by securing our borders and protecting our nation’s security.  

ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT

The right to bear arms is a constitutionally protected right and I will fight to defend it. Tennessee’s sporting heritage is an important part of our state’s history and culture.  

ON OBAMACARE VS. HEALTHCARE

Obamacare puts government bureaucracy between doctors and patients.  We must allow patients the freedom to shop for insurance that best fits their family rather than requiring them to purchase coverage that fits neither their needs or their budget.  Our first priority must be repealing Obamacare and allowing families to shop for insurance nationally, not just in their state.  

ON EDUCATION

Parents should be trusted and empowered to decide what is best for their children, because children are different with different education needs.  And every child deserves access to quality education.  Like so many other things currently over-regulated and controlled by Washington DC, education is best handled at the local level.

ON THE VALUE OF VETERANS

Those who have served and defended our nation must be treated with great honor, respect, and dignity, and not just in word, but in deed. I believe that we must honor these brave and women by providing them with the promised resources that they have earned, often through great personal sacrifice on our behalf.  The failure and corruption of institutions like the VA to provide for our veterans is shameful and must be reformed through increased accountability. We must also ensure our veterans have the knowledge, tools, and opportunities to find jobs and receive support when they return home.  

ON ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

The best way to eliminate our dependence on other nations is to wisely cultivate and develop our many natural and technological resources. Energy producers and innovators should not be overburdened with regulations, processes for oil exploration should be streamlined, and more regions should be opened up for domestic energy production.

STAND WITH JIMMY

TAKE ACTION

Thank you so much for choosing to stand with me. It means the world to our family. Together, we’re going to put East Tennessee first! Career politicians can’t fix this country. Only everyday Americans can. Together, we can. Together, we will.
