Questionnaire

1. Should the Healthcare law be repealed?

SUPPORTS - One can conclude he wants to repeal the healthcare law based on the following quote from CNN, “What the Court did not do on the last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected president of the United States, and that is that I will act to repeal Obamacare.” Source: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/28/romney-reacts-to-health-care-ruling-renews-repeal-pledge/

2. Should the definition of marriage be broadened beyond one man and one woman by state or federal government?

OPPOSES - Based on his signature of the National Organization for Marriage pledge in December of 2011, he supports marriage between only one man and one woman. Source: http://www.nomblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Romney-Signed-Pledge.pdf

3. What is your position on expanding gun control?

UNCLEAR - A Fox News article on July 21, 2012 notes that he “signed a ban on assault weapons as Massachusetts governor. But as the presumptive Republican nominee, he now bills himself as the candidate who will protect gun owners' rights.” Source: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/07/21/obama-romney-views-have-evolved-toward-gun-rights/#ixzz24oFQlodR

4. What is your position on abortion?

OPPOSES - On his campaign website he says, “I am pro-life and believe that abortion should be limited to only instances of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.” Source: http://www.mittromney.com/blogs/mitts-view/2011/06/my-pro-life-pledge

5. What is your position on tax increases?

OPPOSES - In a June 17, 2012 CBS interview, he said, "I'm not looking for a tax cut for the very wealthiest, I'm looking to bring tax rates down for everyone, and also to make sure that we stimulate growth by doing so and jobs. For me this is all about creating good jobs. I'm looking to keep the burden paid by the wealthiest as the same share that it is today."
