Dan grew up in a typical middle-class family. His dad was a detective in the police department and his mom stayed home with his siblings until they went to school and she rejoined the workforce. It was at home where Dan learned the dignity of hard work, the value of public service, and the duty to help others. He also learned that a problem was just an opportunity to make things better.
After high school, Dan attended the New York Maritime University and transferred to Cornell on a Navy ROTC scholarship.
Dan joined a small company called Pride Health Care (later named Pride Mobility Products). Over two decades, Dan helped build Pride Mobility from a small business to a large employer with over 700 employees in PA. It was named one of the state’s best places to work. The company has employed many veterans over the years and has an Iraq War Veteran/triple amputee as the spokesman of its rehab division.
Pride Mobility continues to lead the industry and improve the quality of life for people around the world, including our nation’s veterans who utilize the company’s products and have also served as spokesperson’s for the company.
In 2011, Governor Tom Corbett nominated Dan to serve as Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Revenue. Dan worked to reform the Department of Revenue (DOR), increase efficiencies and put into place customer-first procedures. Under his leadership, the department improved it’s rating from a D to an A- and was named the most improved Dept of Revenue in the nation.
Deciding To Run For Congress:
When President Donald J. Trump contacted Congressman Lou Barletta, 11th PA, encouraging Lou to run for the US Senate vs. Casey, Lou Barletta—a long-time friend of Dan’s—encouraged Dan to run for his congressional seat. Lou didn’t encourage Dan because of that friendship, but rather because he recognized the need for strong, experienced business people in Washington DC. Dan understands we need problem-solvers in the US Congress who will work to “drain the swamp.”
Dan Meuser was a very strong supporter of President Trump during both the primary and general election cycle, generating support and fundraising for the campaign.
Dan Meuser is running on an America First Agenda. He believes we need people in Congress to help the President enact his agenda, rather than people who are obstructionists who will get in the way of Making America Great Again.
Supporting Our Veterans:
“Veterans are American patriots and they deserve honor and respect. Supporting our veterans must be a top priority for our government. As your congressman, I will fight to continue reforming the VA and for greater access to private healthcare to ensure our veterans get the services they earned and deserve.” —Dan Meuser
Below please find Dan’s priorities as related to veterans (this information can also be downloaded from the policy section of our campaign website www.meuserforcongress.com
Supporting Our Veterans
Our veterans stepped up to serve us, some have done so in combat, and they deserve a Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) system that will not fail them.
Veterans Choice Act
Veterans should not have to wait for healthcare services, they should be at the front of the line every time for their healthcare needs. Dan Meuser supports the Veterans Choice Act that was recently extended by President Trump and allows vets facing lengthy wait times at VA facilities or living over 40 miles from the nearest VA to seek care in the private sector. In Congress, Dan will fight to continue to expand this program and allow more access to private care for veterans.
We must end the bureaucracy at the VA and, importantly, implement systems that are more user-friendly for veterans and/or caregivers using the latest technologies. Dan also supports the ability to fire underperforming, corrupt and/or incompetent VA employees and putting an end to waste, fraud, and abuse.
Increase Mental Health Support/Suicide Prevention Services
Recent VA reports indicate nearly one veteran commits suicide an hour. Dan Meuser believes we need to allocate stronger resources towards mental health, veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and that we should support beneficial combat veteran peer-to-peer programs and ensure expedited mental health care accessibility.
Veteran Employment Opportunities
Veterans are not looking for handouts, they are looking for hand ups; job opportunities. We owe it to them to do everything we can to help them get on a path to success as they leave active duty, whether corporate positions or in the trades. We must support existing programs that work or replace them with ones that are more effective.
Reduce Disability Backlog
Veterans should not be waiting in a backlog for years for their disability ratings. We must reduce the backlog, and get claims right the first time in order to prevent veterans from having to appeal cases, and, a key part of the reductions, also work to link the branch of service computer systems with the VA’s systems in order to expedite the processing of medical history records wherever possible and to reduce the burden on the veteran
We would like to direct you to our website to learn more about him, his additional policy positions and his priorities (including a “Government for the People Plan” Dan wrote which addresses areas he will focus upon when in the US Congress).
Additionally, you can view Dan’s endorsements to date on the website (which include that of PA Trump surrogates and Trump Delegates and you can go to our campaign Facebook page to see a video message of support for Dan Meuser from John “Tig” Tiegen, a veteran and hero who fought as a contractor in Benghazi).

Fight on, Trump – “You magnificent bastard”
This is a great article!! A description of politics in the US since the mid-sixties.
Evan Douglas Sayet is a comedian and conservative speaker He is the nation’s leading conservative speaker, an in-demand Master of Ceremony for Republican events. Sayet is the author of The Kinder Garden Of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks And Why He’s Convinced That Ignorance Is Bliss.
He Fights. by Evan Sayet
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #Never Trumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.
They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship.
Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety: has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one the violent take-over of the universities till today.
The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.
During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights…”
General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!” That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.
That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted.Â
Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.
Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.
It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.
So, to my friends on the Left and the #Never Trumpers as well do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this warrior. He fights for America! Fight on you magnificent bastard!
I did an interview with the BBC at 8:30 AM EST Saturday 20 Jan 2018. The questions were mainly focused on the Presidents Inauguration speech last January 20th. My counterpart was Stefanie Kamerman from Pussyhat Project
A quick first question was about the Government Shutdown. My answer was simple. “This is an argument that is to be dealt with in Congress. It has little or nothing to do with President Trump”.
Explanation of my answer: Since 1974 the influence and control the President of the United States has over the process is diminished. See Wikipedia article here.
Basically, the President submits a Budget Request to Congress. It is then worked on and sent back to the President for a signature or a veto. The holdup is because Republicans do NOT have a 60 member majority in the Senate. Without a 60 member majority, little to nothing gets done that does not have support from both parties. Republicans only control the House and the Presidential offices. Therefore, it is the Democrats holding up any budget process and has nothing to do with the President. Hope that clears things up.
The second question was “How has America’s standing in the world changed in this first year under President Trump?” My answer was fairly straightforward. I will paraphrase unless there are “quotes” around something.
Our enemies fear us and our allies trust us again. During the Obama Administration, a lot of our allies were afraid we would not support them. Now countries like South Korea and Japan know we will. President Trump also got NATO countries to start paying what they promised so America does not have to put as much into the organization. Trade agreements are in negotiation and for the first time, the entire UN Security Council, including Russia and China, voted to put sanctions on North Korea.
Stefanie Kamerman’s answer
Not good, President Trump has not met the Queen of England and will not cut a ribbon on the New American Embassy. In addition, I don’t like his tweets at North Korea. It’s like kicking a hornet’s nest.
Even the commentator asked if that was a big deal. I was a bit astonished at the answer. I did not have time to counter but the fact is the tweeting has brought the North and South Koreans to talking again. Not that I think this really matters. The North never keeps its word so it is pointless. As for the Queen and the Embassy, I admit President Trump was wrong about who was responsible for the sale of the old Embassy. However, I believe his main problem was the stupidity of the deal and the amount spent on the new Embassy. One thing President Trump can’t stand is a “lousy deal”, especially when it comes to real estate. Well, bad on you Mr. President for caring about bad deals! It’s an embarrassment to the world. (My tongue is stuck in my cheek.)
The third question was Do you personally feel better off now that the economy has improved?
Stefanie Kamerman’s answer
No, the President did not repeal Obamacare. The economy is booming and unemployment is at a historic low, tax reform did happen but we have an enormous debt. What are we doing about the debt?
As a business consultant and web developer, I have quite a few business clients. A good friend and client who is not a Trump supporter recently reported to me personally that his business was up around 33% this past year. As we look at GDP hitting 3% it will help reduce the debt. In addition, we need to remember it was President Obama who created more debt than all other Presidents combined. Also, as we renegotiate trade agreements the debt will come back into balance. The tax cuts will bring jobs back and Apple just announced they are bringing 350 BILLION dollars back to America over the next 5 years. Other companies will likely follow suit and this will also reduce the debt. Lower unemployment means more workers which in turn increases tax revenue and further increases GDP.
Last questions. In regards to race relations is US more divided today?
Stefanie Kamerman’s answer
We are more divided. Recently KKK flyers have been found here in Northern Virginia where I live. There is a huge divide between Democrats and Republicans.
I believe the country became more divided racially, not because of President Obama, but because the Democratic Party continues to beat that drum. Before President Obama, I felt the country was starting to get past that. I’m nearly 60 years old. I grew up down the street from (and here is where I misspoke) from President Obama in New York City. (I meant to say, President Trump). I grew up with a lot of mixed race friends. I have a mixed race grandchild as well as nieces and nephews. Another misspoken line when I should have said, Cousins. This gives me a special interest in the subject. As a Republican and Conservative, I do not personally know anyone who is prejudice against someone because they are black, Hispanic, etc.
Those who ask questions about the significance of “man-made global warming” are labeled “climate change deniers.” Using the word “denier” has been pointed out to be an attempt to draw a parallel to “holocaust deniers.” I get the whole propaganda/psyops technique used to drive political messaging.
However, Karma can be a bitch. Those who deny the unprecedented economic boom can easily be classified as “Trump Economy Deniers.”
The top Democrat in the House, Nancy Pelosi actually said tax reform is “Armageddon.” (She thinks it is worse than Iran or North Korea getting Nukes!) Suddenly I hear “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine” in my head. (I paid way too much attention to music growing up.) I suppose Nancy and all the Democrats can be called “Tax Reform Deniers.”
Do Democrats have any credibility or self-respect left? You may not like the President but you should love the results of his policies. President Trump likely has done more for the “War on Poverty” than Democrats have done in the last 53 years since it began. We will have to give it another year or so to get the stats.
Let’s see what kind of denier your relatives are this Christmas. I’m sure the subject will come up in a lot of households. Ask them if they deny any of the below items.
- Economy on steroids – Unemployment, Stock Market, Job Creation, GDP all doing amazingly better.
- Tax Reform – Not what President Trump wanted but he has to rely on the House and Senate for this.
- Bad Regulations Repealed – We never needed these regulations and all they did was stifle our economy.
- ISIS Caliphate Gone – Sure, they will move but they are on the run and that’s a good thing.
- NATO Paying – For the first time they are starting to step up. More money for our people.
- UN Put On Notice – Nikki Haley calls out bad actors and corruption at the United Nations.
- China and Russia Sanction North Korea – First time in history.
- Pipelines Opened – Construction begins and fuel will be safer to transport and will lower prices.
- VA Employees Fired – Over 500 worthless VA employees fired since Jan 20th.
- Vets Get Healthcare – Veterans can now see civilian doctors when wait times are too long.
- Illegal Border Crossings Down – Just by enforcing the law border crossings down by 76%.
- Foreign Drug Gangs Kicked Out – Deportations of illegal gang members is a priority under Trump.
- Country Ban Enforced – A win in the Supreme Court now allows the Country Ban, making us safer.
- Fine For Healthcare Repealed – As part of the tax reform play you are no longer fined for not having Obamacare. $695 per uninsured person and $347.50 per child (up to a $975 maximum) savings.
I’m sure there are many accomplishments I missed. However, if you can deny the great accomplishments of President Trump then you are a Truth Denier.
Scott Uehlinger is the right man for the job. A fellow Veteran with great experience and a Trump supporter. We fully endorse Scott for the 15th Congressional District in Pennsylvania. See a letter from Scott to his fellow Pennsylvanians below:
Hello fellow Pennsylvanian,
I’m Scott Uehlinger, and I am a Republican running for United States Congress in Pennsylvania’s 15th Congressional District.
My story is not one typical of a career politician. It began by pursuing my dream of a military career with an appointment to the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and entering the United States Navy as a commissioned officer upon graduation. I saw the world at its best and worst while serving at sea during my four years on active duty. Upon leaving Navy active duty, I returned to sea as a merchant marine still serving our country by delivering fuel to our troops in the Persian Gulf War zone.
Long fascinated by history and foreign cultures, and a desire to continuing serving this great nation, I joined the Central Intelligence Agency in 1996 as an Operations Officer and quickly realized I had an aptitude for languages. In short order, I found myself fluent in four languages including Russian and Spanish. That unique skill enabled me to operate in the former Soviet Union, recruiting spies for the United States for over 12 years.
My career included intelligence operations against Russian, Iranian, terror, and weapons proliferation targets, and I was awarded five exceptional performance awards for my service.
This unfiltered real-world experience, not a career in big government political bureaucracy, is the perspective I will bring to Washington D.C..
In 2014 I retired as a CIA Station Chief and Naval Reserve Officer, settling in Topton (Berks County) with my beautiful wife Veronica and wonderful daughter, Mihaela.
Other accomplishments include a having held a faculty position at New York University, and being a sought-after expert on intelligence and national security matters for Fox News, Sirus XM Patriot, Breitbart Radio, and many others. I also publish a blog called, ‘The Station Chief’ at newsmax.com, and am an NRA Life Member.
A very early supporter of President Trump, in May 2016 I was elected by the voters in PA’s 15th Congressional District to represent them as a Donald Trump Delegate at the Republican National Convention.
Now I have been called to serve again as the voice of the people in the 15th Congressional District. As a non-politician, I will bring a lifetime of national security experience and military discipline to Congress, where I will uphold the interests of our district and our great republic, and join others in returning our federal government to where it rightfully belongs. In the hands of the American people.
However, I cannot do this without your help. We need your support now more than ever because now is the time to put citizen-politicians into office.
Let’s start here in the 15th Congressional District of Pennsylvania!
Please, visit my website, www.scottforpa.com and donate. Even a small donation is a big help in this fight against the establishment.

Christina Hagan is the only pro-Trump candidate in the race for Ohio’s 16th congressional district. Veterans for Trump exists to promote worthy people and causes and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is why we are announcing our official support of Christina Hagan for Congress. Christina is a proven constitutional warrior who will cut through the bureaucratic bog and get to work on the MAGA agenda we voted for and continue to support.
There’s a war going on in the heart of D.C. and President Trump needs a MAGA warrior like Christina to fight with him against the Establishment of the people’s agenda.
I had the opportunity to speak with Christina a few days ago. We submitted her information to our members and she is being endorsed by 100% of our membership! In addition, one of our members, Navyman Norm, volunteered to work for Christiana in Ohio.
I am inserting a portion of a video from YouTube. After speaking with Christina and watching this video I was very impressed with her. Christina fits in with Vets For Trump nicely. She has the courage & heart of a warrior! In the video, you will hear her support and defend the President of the United States knowing it will make her unpopular with a group of women. Christina is clear about President Trump. He is the President the country needs and that he treated her with more respect than many in the GOP establishment.
Please share this post with all your friends. We are spread out across this nation but we can support her by helping to amplify her voice! A voice that needs to be heard by others running for Congress.
