Questions & Answers

Stop subsidizing the oil industry, reduce its use of fossil fuels, raise standards on vehicles to improve their milage and reduce their emissions, stop blocking cleaner energy producing techhnologies. Shift research towards clean, renewable energy.

2. What should the federal government do, if anything, to ensure that every American has health coverage?

Institute a single payer health care program, such as the Canadian system.

3. What, if anything, should the federal government do about immigration?

Stop subsidizing policies which drive people off their land in countries outside the US, such as Mexico, into poverty, and force them to leave their homes to seek work and money for their survival and their families survival. Do not criminalize workers, but be more rigorous in cracking down on businesses which take advantage of frightened labor which they are exploiting. The current policies encourage businesses to superexploit "undocumented immigrants" and businesses have become dependent on cheap labor.
