Cao supports increased openness and transparency in Congress. He said,
"We cannot cut wasteful spending and inefficient government systems until we are willing to expose those who support them. While we cannot ‘legislate morality’ we can certainly demand moral and ethical behavior from those who have been elected to serve." 
Cao said he will work to ensure that the 100 year flood protection plan is fully funded, offshore oil revenues are distributed fairly and quickly. He also said he will work to make stealing from victims of declared disasters a federal crime, and to ensure cheating contractors are caught. 
To reduce crime rates, Cao supports increasing funding for first responders, using community policing initiatives for deterrence and working with organizations to keep youth out of trouble. 
Cao supports developing a market based solution to healthcare based on three principles: local solutions, care centered around patients, and making quality care accessible for all. His goal is to have neighborhood medical homes that are connected and focused on prevention. 
Cao was born March 13, 1967, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He has a B.S. from Baylor University, an M.A. from Fordham University and a J.D. Loyola University. In addition to practicing law, Cao has worked as a teacher and a lobbyist. Before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, he was an unsuccessful candidate for the Louisiana House of Representatives.
