John Kennedy's
Priorities

Serving as U.S. Senator for the great state of Louisiana has been the honor of my lifetime. I know how important it is to fight for your interests and not the interests of the Washington elite. We need good-paying jobs, better education for our children, and a little common sense up in Washington, and I’m working every day to make sure it happens.

Priorities

Putting America First

America is the greatest nation in all human history. But you wouldn’t know that listening to the liberal politicians these days. As your U.S. Senator, I’ve always put America’s interests first, including standing up to communist China and ending the bad trade deals that hurt our American workers.

Fighting for Louisiana Families

As your U.S. Senator, I put Louisiana families first and always will. I’ve supported policies that keep neighborhoods safe from violent criminals, keep insurance premiums low, protect the family retirement plan from foreign corruption, and even keep the family dog safe during travel.

Build the Wall, Secure the Border

We need to finish building the border wall, plain and simple. While liberals in the White House and Congress champion open borders, Louisianians favor policies that secure our Southern border. That’s because what happens at the border affects us. We don’t want crime in our communities perpetrated by drug cartels who peddle drugs and violence. I helped lead efforts to build a secure border wall to stop the inflow of illegal aliens, drugs, and violence, and have fought to stop our taxpayer dollars from funding sanctuary cities like San Francisco. I’ve prioritized funding for law enforcement agencies to keep our communities safe and worked to criminalize visa overstays and end the practice of a visa lottery. America is a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws, and Washington needs to start acting like it.

Protecting Louisiana Jobs

Whether it’s oil and gas, a small business down Main Street, working at a petrochemical plant, or a start-up lawn mowing company, I am fighting to create new jobs and provide specialized training to Louisiana’s workers. I’ve lowered taxes for working families and cut job-killing red tape because I believe you should keep more of your hard-earned money, not the government. 

Draining the Swamp

In Washington, millions of dollars are made each year through illegal means. I’ve acted to uncover illegal insider stock trading, corrupt federal contracting, and saved more than $80 billion for the U.S. taxpayers. Cracking down on corruption is essential to building a democracy we can trust, and I will always prioritize ways to save taxpayer money.

Bringing Louisiana Common Sense to Washington

Louisianians are busy earning a living every day and providing for their families. They don’t have time to worry about the partisan games that seem to be played every day in Washington. That’s why I am fighting on the front lines against stupid each and every day. I’ve often said our country was founded by geniuses, but it’s being run by idiots. It’s true. When the left wingers introduce liberal policies like the Green New Deal or Welfare For All, I am always there to fight back. I’ve stood strong to stop our tax dollars from going to dead people, to stop millionaires from collecting food stamps, and to stop violent murderers and pedophiles from receiving get-out-of-jail-free cards.  I will never back down from a fight over wasteful spending or wacky policy ideas. You trusted me to bring Louisiana common sense to every debate in the U.S. Senate, and that’s what I do.

Pro-Life Agenda

I believe that every life is precious and formed in the hand of almighty God, whether it’s 82 seconds old or 82 years old. As your senator, I have made protecting life and defending the unborn my top priority. I wholeheartedly believe the U.S. Supreme Court made the wrong decision in Roe v. Wade, which is why fighting in Congress to defend the unborn and advancing a Pro-Life Agenda is as crucial as ever. Whether it’s on the steps of the Supreme Court or the Senate floor, I always remain steadfast in my commitment to life.

Flood Insurance &
Disaster Recovery

Many Louisiana families count on the National Flood Insurance Program for affordable flood insurance. I’ve fought tooth and nail in the U.S. Senate to keep NFIP rates low and have successfully saved NFIP from lapsing. We’ve also increased funding for disaster assistance to the highest levels in history.  I’ll continue legislating to reauthorize flood insurance while supporting reforms that keep your premiums low. For catastrophic events like Hurricane Laura, the SEACOR Power, or other cases of extreme weather, I fight like hell to get the assistance and accountability from federal agencies that victims of a disaster deserve.

Life-changing education

Education has the power to change lives. No parent should have to send his or her child to a failing school. Too many of our kids are trapped in schools where violence is more common than learning.

I’ve been a substitute teacher in Louisiana public schools for years, so I’ve seen firsthand that quality education is the key to Louisiana’s future. Improving our education system starts with getting the federal government out of our curriculum and classrooms and with giving teachers the resources and authority they need to do their jobs. Just ask a parent, what we are teaching our kids matters, and I refuse to support Biden’s plan to subsidize wokeness in Louisiana’s schools. The most important thing we can do to improve our schools is make sure parents have the authority and power they need to make good decisions for their child’s future, and I’m working every day to make sure they have that.
