Vote Smart's Research

  • "Our country needs to embark on an "Apollo-like" Mission to convert all energy generation and transportation to renewable sources by 2025. Climate change is real, it is primarily caused by humans, and we need to both reduce its impact as quickly as possible, and put in place strategies and policies to deal with its impacts."

No Inferred Answer Health Care: Do you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act? View Citations

Vote Smart's Research

  • "A properly designed social support system not only supports those who have lost their jobs or who are working for poverty-level wages. It also supports entrepreneurs and small businesses. One example is the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), which require insurance companies to provide policies to individuals even if they have a pre-existing condition. Workers with great ideas for businesses, products or services no longer need to stay in dead-end jobs because of their pre-existing conditions. They can start their new business with the knowledge that their healthcare will be covered for a reasonable cost." (votesmart.org)
No Inferred Answer Immigration: Do you support requiring illegal immigrants to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship? View Citations

Vote Smart's Research

  • "Virtually everyone can agree that our immigration system is broken and the time is now for comprehensive reform. I support a pathway to earned citizenship for the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants living in America. In today's immigration system, people waiting to obtain an immigrant visa face unreasonably long backlogs -- in some instances more than two decades. Clearing the backlog of family based petitions is welcomed by families who have been waiting for decades. I will always be a huge advocate for immigration reform and will continue to fight until we have real comprehensive immigration reform." (votesmart.org)
