Q: Do you support an income tax increase on any tax bracket?
A: Yes. By "any tax bracket", I mean the highest income tax brackets. I do not support middle class tax increases at this time.
Q: Do you support reducing Medicaid spending?
Q: Do you support reducing Medicare spending?
Q: Is balancing the budget a legislative priority?
A: No. The current administration is on the right track by prioritizing economic sanctions, international pressure and diplomacy to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
Q: Do you support targeting suspected terrorists outside of official theaters of conflict?
A: Regarding targeting people who are "suspected" terrorists, this question is too vague and complex for a yes/no. Circumstances sometimes exist, as with Osama Bin Laden, where the U.S. must act because someone poses a threat to our national security or because we know they attacked our country but the general rule must be diplomacy and due process.
Existing law requires that absentee ballots cast pursuant to these procedures be received by the county elections official not later than 8 p.m. on the day of a federal election. This bill would extend the time period for the receipt of absentee ballots of active military personnel stationed overseas that are postmarked or signed and dated by the day of a federal election to not later than 10 days after the election. This bill would require that the identification envelopes for all overseas absentee ballots be plainly marked as such and contain a declaration, under penalty of perjury, by the voter stating that he or she completed the ballot on or before the day of the election. This bill would provide that its provisions shall become operative on January 1, 2006. This bill, by adding to the duties of county elections officials, would impose a state-mandated local program.
