    Government/Public Service Experience:

    None

    Personal:

    Platform:

    “The Constitution is the solution”

    On the Issues:

    Economy:

    In Wangen’s view, the only way for the economy to grow is to open up the free market, remove any barriers to competition, and provide no privileges or incentives to any businesses. Getting the federal government out of the economy will lead to growth.

    Energy and the Environment:

    “Global climate change is not a foregone conclusion… It is not the federal government’s place to determine climate change.” Wangen has also written that the EPA and environmental protection in general is unconstitutional. Only a state government or a constitutional amendment can bring about legal reform when it comes to energy and the environment.

    Healthcare:

    Wangen is against the President’s national healthcare programs and instead believes that free market competition for healthcare and health insurance is the right way.

    “It is un-constitutional for the federal government to provide healthcare for anyone except members of the armed forces, or retired members of the same. It is un-constitutional for the federal government to require any citizen to have health insurance.”
