Hi, I’m Congressman Dave Joyce. When I was elected 16 months ago, I pledged that I would fight every single day in Washington for Northeast Ohio. Since then, I’ve woken up every morning remembering that promise and the people I represent in Ohio’s 14th Congressional District.
That’s why I’ve fought to get Washington on a budget, repeal the affordable care act, and improve the economy so we can bring more jobs back to Northeast Ohio. Together, we’ve accomplished a lot - but the work isn’t done, and that’s why I’m proud to announce I am running for reelection.
I’m running because we need the American people to lead America’s economic recovery, not politicians. I’m running to fight for the American dream – where if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead.
I’m running because we need to re-establish American economic independence. If we owe less, we own more of our own future. And when the American people are free to succeed, there’s no limit to what we can accomplish.
You see my wife Kelly and I have 3 kids in college, and every year we sit down to put together a budget because, like all American families, we don’t spend what we don’t have. That’s not how it has always worked in our nations capital. There’s still more to do, but we’ve finally forced Washington sit down and put together its budget – and I’m proud to be a part of that solution.
I’ve worked to repeal the healthcare law every chance I’ve had. My wife Kelly has been a registered nurse for 20 years, and she reminds me every day that Ohioans deserve easier access to better care, not lost coverage and skyrocketing health costs. I’ve also made cutting wasteful spending a top priority, and not just by talking about it. I actually introduced a bill that would cut $200 billion in government waste and duplicative programs. That’s just Northeast Ohio common sense.
I’ve fought for the Great Lakes, Northeast Ohio’s greatest economic and environmental resource, by ensuring Lake Erie receives the funding it needs to continue to be an economic powerhouse and source of job creation.
We’ve been able to accomplish a lot and It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve you over the past 16 months. But we’re all in this together, and there’s a lot more we need to do. For my wife Kelly and our family, this is personal. This is about making America more competitive, more innovative and more productive and I’d be honored if you join me in that fight.
RE: Dave Joyce: A principled Conservative for OH-14
Congressman Dave Joyce begins the 2014 campaign in an ideal position for re-election, because of his proven record as a principled conservative during his short time in Congress. Dave has focused on stopping wasteful government spending, repealing “Obamacare”, creating good jobs, protecting the constitution and shrinking our nation’s massive debt.

To me, the founders’ vision of the presidency and our government was simple. There was to be a system of checks and balances so that no one person could become too powerful.
That’s why I’m extremely concerned about President Obama’s recent statement on his willingness to completely bypass Congress to achieve what he wants.
Although it’s been in the news lately, unilateral executive actions are not new to this administration. They’ve used executive orders to delay unpopular parts of the Affordable Care Act, and to push back layoffs until after an election.…
As President Obama’s critics grow increasingly concerned about his use of executive power, they’re also examining their options.
In the House, more than 100 Republican members have signed on to the Stop This Overreaching President (STOP) Resolution. In it, Rep. Tom Rice, R-SC, lays out the ways in which he believes the president has violated his Article 2, Section 3 constitutional duty to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
Rice points to the president’s unilateral modifications to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), welfare-to-work requirements and immigration laws.…
