Meet Brian.

  • A native Californian, Brian Nestande is a successful businessman, proven political leader, and family man. Elected to the State Assembly in 2008, Brian has focused on increasing transparency and accountability in the state budget and reforming the regulatory environment that is driving job creators out of California.

    He believes in streamlining government bureaucracy and reducing the size of government. The first bill Brian introduced in Sacramento was to limit the number of bills a legislator could introduce. By streamlining the bureaucracy and eliminating redundant regulations, California businesses and entrepreneurs will have a better opportunity to expand their business, create more jobs, and improve our quality of life.

    As a candidate for Congress, Brian wants to bring the same focus to reforming the tax code and the way government spends our money. The United States can no longer afford to deficit spend year- after-year and we need to find ways to eliminate duplicate programs. As we draw down on military commitments around the world, we must invest in transforming our economy to remain competitive in the 21st Century.

    A bipartisan leader, Brian reached across party lines to help build a coalition that closed a loophole on out of state businesses in the attempt to achieve bi-partisan compromise on regulatory relief for California businesses. That leadership was not without controversy but that’s what we need more of in Washington: Leaders unafraid to do what is needed to get our nation back on track.

    A graduate of California State University Fullerton, Brian lives in Palm Desert with his wife, Gina. They have seven children.

Issues.

  • Obamacare
  • Jobs and the economy
  • Deficit spending
  • District support and local control
  • Obamacare is a failure, and Congress must repeal and replace it. The law, packed with more than 10,000 pages of regulations, is full of government mandates and unintended consequences – and was sold on the falsehood that if Americans liked their health plans, they could keep them. In reality, Obamacare has tossed at least 6 million Americans off their existing plans. At the same time, Obamacare is cutting $700 billion from Medicare, the nation’s vital health care program for seniors. And its regulations continue to put the government between the doctor and the patient. All of this is wrong – and it’s not surprising that a recent AP poll found that just 26% of Americans support Obamacare. Legislators need to replace this failing law with reforms that emphasize patient and consumer choice, along with market-­‐ and physician-­‐based solutions that can help lower costs while preserving access to care.

  • Washington, D.C., needs to stop impeding job creation and economic growth in America. Enormous federal regulations slap a surcharge on the U.S. economy, causing companies to forgo job-­‐creating investment so they can pay for the costs of implementing government rules. Congress needs to reduce these mandates – and prevent the unruly growth of new ones. It should start by repealing and replacing Obamacare, which business owners nationwide cite as a barrier to job growth and business investment. The federal government should also stop stalling projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline, which is widely supported by Americans and offers 42,000 shovel-­‐ready jobs. The nation suffers from record joblessness – 92.6 million Americans were not in the labor force in April, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics – and the weakest economic “recovery” since World War II. Reversing those trends requires lower taxes, fewer regulations and more economic freedom. Congress and federal regulators should focus not on dictating to the nation’s job creators, but on getting out of their way.

  • Washington’s dismal record on budgeting calls for a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. We suffer from a spending epidemic that has driven the national debt to more than $17 trillion – in excess of $50,000 for every man, woman and child in the United States. Congress needs to end this reckless approach. A balanced budget amendment would help remove spending programs from autopilot and push legislators to examine federal outlays: Are they necessary and effective? Are they so pressing that the nation should keep borrowing from foreign countries to sustain them? Americans deserve careful fiscal stewardship – not endless, heedless spending that will leave our children and grandchildren with crushing debt.

  • A federal legislator’s role is to deliver leadership on key federal issues such as health care, jobs and the economy, and the national budget – but also to help constituents and represent their interests in Washington, D.C. Members of Congress should keep decision-­‐making as close to the people as possible by supporting local authority when practical, and putting federal muscle behind local consensus when helpful. At the same time, they should assist in solving local challenges that have a federal angle, such as a regional bid to save the flailing Ontario International Airport by placing it under regional control, and helping to offset the local costs of national cargo traffic that flows inland from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
