Questions & Answers

1. What, if anything, do you believe the federal government should do to control global climate change?

The federal government is capable of doing a great deal to address the issue of global climate change. The issue is one of priorities and will, not of available resources. The worst polluters are those in the U.S. military industrial complex. There should stringent regulation of corporate and military pollution. A public, widespread transportation system could also contribute significantly to controlling global climate change.

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

Health care is a right, not a commodity! The federal government should provide free, universal and comprehensive health care to all people in the United States. The billions of tax dollars used for war and occupation could easily be redirected into building this kind of health care system, which would provide thousands of additional badly needed jobs. We stand for abolishing the insurance companies that provide no real service to people.

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

My campaign recognizes that workers are forced to come to the United States because of the wars and economic policies imposed by the U.S. government. We stand for full rights for all immigrants. There should be no raids and deportations--which serve merely to terrorize immigrant workers.
