Issues Home

  • Agriculture

    Having grown up on a two-wheel, wagon-rut mule farm, I know firsthand how vital agriculture is to Ohio and our nation, which is why I am committed to strengthening and supporting the agriculture industry. This is done first by building strong relatio...

  • Budget

    Our national debt is staggering; it currently stands at over $19 trillion, and will have doubled during President Obama’s tenure. Each American’s share of that debt is about $60,000. This is not only unsustainable, but it is an immoral burden that we...

  • Coal

    Coal is the cheapest, most reliable source of energy on the planet. Right now, Ohio gets over 70% of its energy from coal-fired power plants, and America gets nearly 50% of its power from coal nationwide. There is no doubt in my mind that the coal in...

  • Education

    As a father, grandfather, and product of America's public school system, I know the critical role that education plays in America today. For generations, America has led the way in educating our young people in critical areas of science, technology, ...

  • Energy

    I am humbled and honored to have been chosen by my colleagues to serve on the House Energy and Commerce Committee — the oldest, and one of the most influential, legislative committees in Congress. The Energy and Commerce Committee oversees America’s ...

  • Foreign Affairs

    America has always been "the" leader in promoting freedom and protecting and preserving democracy around the world. I remain an unwavering supporter of Israel, our strongest democratic ally in the region, and I will continue to insist the U.S. Suppor...

  • Health Care

    Since I was first elected, I’ve opposed President Obama’s health care law that was forced on the American people. I’ve consistently made clear my belief that it must be repealed and replaced. I have voted more than 50 times to repeal all or parts of ...

  • Homeland Security/National Defense

    In order for the United States to provide for its citizens and promote American ideals overseas, it must first guarantee protection against very real threats from those who would see our Nation fail. Having served over 26 years in the U.S. Air Force,...

  • Immigration

    For far too long the federal government has failed Americans when it comes to an immigration policy that actually works. As a member of the Immigration Reform Caucus, I have learned just how broken our immigration system is. First and foremost, we sh...

  • Jobs & The Economy

    Our top priority must be fixing the economy and creating jobs. Our government is building a national debt at a rate that we can’t afford – we’re leaving our children and grandchildren with a bill for which they shouldn’t be responsible. The first ste...

  • Medicare

    Medicare is a sacred contract between the federal government and America’s seniors who have paid into this critical program throughout their lives. As a son whose mother depends on Medicare, guaranteeing the promise of Medicare to America’s seniors i...

  • Pro-Life

    As a father and grandfather, there is no doubt in my mind that life begins at conception. As a member of the House Pro Life Caucus, I will always fight for the rights of the unborn. I strongly oppose any taxpayer money going to funding abortions whic...

  • Second Amendment

    As a gun owner, concealed carry permit holder, and lifetime member of the NRA, Bill Johnson knows that our Second Amendment rights are fundamental and must be protected. He is opposed to any measures that would restrict the rights of law-abiding Amer...

  • Veterans Affairs

    As a 26 year veteran of the United States Air Force, I am grateful to all of America's heroes - the men and women who willingly risk their lives to protect our freedoms. One of my top priorities as your representative is ensuring that our veterans an...
