1. What specific measures do you support to increase equal access to health care in Ohio?
I would support to increase equal access to health care in Ohio to allow individuals to buy into the State Medicare Program. Those individuals who meet the 200% of Federal Poverty. We have the Working poor and the retired individuals who are not eligible for Medicare, that are among the uninsured and the underinsured. We need to have a long term care program for low income and the Elderly.
2. What are your views on legislation to study racial profiling by law enforcement?
I support legislation to study racial profiling by law enforcement, because it has not been proving to me that profiling technique is being fairly administered across all races. It appears to me to be a way to target African Americans
3. What stable funding source do you support for the Ohio Housing Trust Fund?
The Ohio Housing Trust funding should be stabilized with Federal Funds (HUD), State funding from the operation and capital budgeting and partnerships with Banks and Businesses. Operating Budget funds be used to subsidizing rents for the Mentally ill, the Mentally retarded and the Disabled Individuals. The Capital Budget funds be appropriate for building new low income homes for the Disabled and the MRDD.
