I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

I will support the Social Security 2100 Act sponsored by Congressman Larson of Connecticut.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
The government needs to legislate a wealth tax and stop riding the backs of those who need assistance most. Recovering the economy seems to always be dependant on the lower and middle classes.

The job market is demanding advanced education and the government should assist in providing accessibility to a higher education.
Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.
