WHERE HE STANDS ON THE ISSUES

ABORTION: Supports – voted against a bill to ban late-term abortions.

DEATH PENALTY: Supports – “the community is justified in expressing the full measure of its outrage.”

GAY MARRIAGE: Stated “Marriage is between a man and a woman” but, “equality is a moral imperative” and “federal law should not discriminate in any way against gay and lesbian couples, which is precisely what DOMA does.”

FAITH-BASED INITIATIVES: Announced ‘plan’ to establish a Counsil for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Under his plan, groups receiving federal funding wouldn’t be allowed to take religion into account in hiring.

ENVIRONMENT: Proposed energy ‘plan’ “cap and trade” system. Plans to allocate funds to create a “green energy sector.”

POVERTY: Helped author state earned income tax credit. Unveiled plan to cut taxes for middle class and senior citizens by eliminating corporate hoopholes and tax breaks. (????) U.S. Senate co-sponsor of act that calls for the President to develop a comprehensive agenda to cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015.

HEALTH CARE: Proposes national health care plan mandating coverage for children but not adults; would be funded in part by projected revenues from allowing Bush’s tax cuts to expire.

IMMIGRATION: Supports reform that provides “stronger enforcement on the border.” Proponent of guest-worker programs that first offer available jobs to Americans.

TAXES: Would allow Bush’s tax cuts to expire. That would revert back to the two highest tax brackets of 36% and 39.6%, rather than keeping the two highest tax brackets at their current rates of 33% and 35%.
