Grow Jobs

Massachusetts needs a jobs Senator.  Geoff Diehl has the proven track record of supporting the economic engine of our state and country – small business.  As our next U.S. Senator, Geoff will push for regulatory and tax reform that will get government off the backs of small business so they can create more jobs.  When employment grows, there is competition for employees which raises wages. Geoff Diehl will grow small business jobs, not government jobs.

Stop Illegal Immigration

After recently visiting the border in Texas, Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, released his comprehensive plan on stopping illegal immigration. “Illegal immigration is a threat to the national security of our nation and to public safety. It costs taxpayers billions of dollars each year. We can no longer kick this can down the road,” said Diehl. “The Commonwealth is greatly affected by the problem of unsecure borders. Matthew Denice was tragically killed by an illegal immigrant driving drunk. The drug epidemic, plaguing so many, has reached our state due to the porous border. Beyond the cost of human life, illegal immigration costs Massachusetts taxpayers $1.8 billion annually,” said Diehl. “Unlike Senator Warren, who grandstands on the issue, I will work to solve the problem in a way that will benefit the Commonwealth. Diehl’s plan includes: Building the wall, Ending chain migration for non-immediate family members, Eliminating the visa…

Lower the Tax Burden

Geoff Diehl is the only candidate in the race who has put money in your wallet.  He led the successful ballot question to repeal automatic gas tax hikes—saving us $2 billion.  We have avoided 3 gas tax increases due to Geoff. Geoff has made and kept the promise to vote against all tax increases.  He is the only candidate in the race to have earned a 100% rating in standing up for taxpayers.

Put Massachusetts First

A Good Diehl for Fishing Our ports are the richest in the country based on what is landed on our docks.  Unfortunately, recent setbacks threaten the future of our fleets. Massachusetts fishermen will finally have a friend in the United States Senate when Geoff Diehl is elected.  Communities from New Bedford to Scituate to Gloucester will be revived. Massachusetts was built on a thriving and healthy fishing industry, steered not only by fishermen, but also by the vital on-shore dockworkers, fish processors, and net manufacturers, just to name a few. This industry, seen by many as the backbone of our state, has been steadily declining over the past 30 years due to increased regulations, burdensome taxation, and vilification from environmental groups. Over the past year, the MA fishing industry has faced especially tough challenges as a result of grounded fleets, stalled permits in the city of New Bedford, and tough…

Fighting the Drug Addiction Epidemic

HOPE A Comprehensive and Compassionate Plan for Fighting the Drug Addiction Epidemic As our next U.S. Senator, Geoff Diehl will be dedicated to defeating the drug addiction epidemic that is stealing the souls of addicts and breaking the hearts of their families. The greatest mistake we can make is keeping the status quo. To end the epidemic, we need a multi-tiered plan that will address the cause of the problem, stop the supply of illegal drugs, treat addicts, and assist their families to bring about a brighter future for so many people affected. Since 2001, Massachusetts has been facing a steadily rising rate of opioid-related abuse, addiction, and overdose. Opioid-related deaths have increased four-fold since 2000, and over two-thirds of the state’s cities and towns experienced opioid-related deaths in 2013-2014. As our next U.S. Senator, Diehl is committed to fighting the epidemic starting on day one. As a legislator, he supported landmark legislation…

Second Amendment

Geoff Diehl supports our inherent rights protected by the Second Amendment. As a legislator and unlike any other candidate in this race, Geoff Diehl is the only person with a proven track record of standing up to protect the Second Amendment. All too often politicians propose legislation that abuses our Second Amendment rights to appear tough on crime to the general public.  Geoff knows the difference between fighting crime and disarming law-abiding citizens.  Limiting our Second Amendment rights does not translate into tough-on-crime measures.  It doesn’t make anyone safer.  It only punishes law-abiding citizens! As our next U.S. Senator, Geoff will support national reciprocity legislation.

Veterans

The Diehl Plan to Improve Veterans Health Care and Post Military Development On November 9, 2017, Geoff Diehl announced a comprehensive 10-point plan to improve veterans’ health care and post military development. The Goals of the Diehl Plan As our next United States Senator, Geoff Diehl wants to ensure that each and every veteran who has served and sacrificed for their country has quality medical care and the support system they need to make the transition back to a civilian life. To that end the Diehl plan supports allowing veterans to take control of their own health care as well as enhanced efforts in the areas of professional training and education of the public regarding veterans’ issues, with an increased focus on support for women veterans. Ensure that every Veteran has the choice to seek care either at the VA facility or a private service provider of their choice: Currently…

Health Care

Patients First. As a father of two teenage daughters and husband, Geoff Diehl understands the importance of quality health plans and care that are affordable to families. As our next United States Senator, Geoff will work to make health care affordable, accessible, and focused on serving patients.   Health care insurance costs should not be exceeding mortgage payments.  However, government bureaucracy doesn’t make anyone healthier. That’s why Geoff supports repealing Obamacare and fixing the health care system so that people can make their own decisions.  Objectives for a new system must include: families having a choice on coverage, being able to buy health insurance across state lines, driving down pharmaceutical costs, requiring that people with pre-existing conditions be able to obtain coverage, demanding transparency in provider pricing, repealing the medical device tax, and giving states flexibility with their Medicaid funds to implement programs to care for the poor.  Moreover, Geoff…

Term Limits

Like our founding fathers, Geoff Diehl doesn’t believe that serving in office or as administration official should be a lifetime career.  Geoff Diehl has kept his word to serve only 4 terms in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.  He has proudly signed the U.S. Term Limits Pledge for U.S. Senate, because government should be run by the people not a ruling class of politicians or the politically connected. A ruling class empowers the insiders, special interest groups and lobbyists.  Geoff wants government to work for you not against you and it starts with officials that are not dependent on government for a lifetime career. Geoff Diehl is the only candidate with a proven track record on term limits.

Israel

Pictured above: Geoff Diehl with Holocaust survivor Helga Lustig of Newton, MA Unlike Senator Elizabeth Warren, Geoff Diehl values the critical alliance between Israel and the United States.  As our next U.S. Senator, Geoff will work to strengthen the relationship between the only democracy and supporter of human rights in the region, Israel, and our nation. Israel is our strongest ally in the Middle East.  Our nations share a long history of being united in principals and goals of freedom, pluralism, open society and protection of basic rights.  Jewish soldiers in pre-State Israel fought alongside the Allies in World War II, while Arabs sided with the Nazis.  Israel was also a strong U.S. ally in the days of the Cold War against the Soviets.  Now we are united in our fight against radical Islamic terrorism. Israel is alone among nations in the Middle East in guaranteeing equal rights to all citizens…
