foreign policy In Afghanistan, I will pursue a real and successful transition to Afghan security forces by the end of 2014.
immigration For me the central issue is that people who are here illegally should be able to apply for citizenship, that should not be prohibited.
gun control I think we have to have more jails, more police. But we also have to say if someone is carrying a gun in the commission a crime, we will give them a stiff mandatory sentence.
civil rights My view is at this stage, this is not the time for us to make that kind of... I didn't think that would work, I didn't think "don't ask, don't tell" would work... when I heard about I laughed I said that doesn't make any sense to me, and you know what? It has been there for 15 years, it seems to have worked... I look forward to hearing from the military exactly what they believe is the right way to have the right kind of cohesion and support in our troops and I'll listen to what they have to say.
healthcare Well, Jim, our seniors depend on these programs. And I know any time we talk about entitlements, people become concerned that something's going to happen that's going to change their life for the worst, and the answer is, neither the president nor I are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees, either to Social Security or Medicare. So if you're 60 or around 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further.
abortion I believe abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since that time my mom took the position when she ran in 1970 as a U.S. Senate candidate.
environment I believe the world is getting warmer, I can't prove that, but I believe based off what I read that the world is getting warmer. And number two I believe humans contribute to that. I don't know how much our contribution is to that because there have been periods of greater heat and warmth than the past, but I believe we contribute to that, and so I think it's important to reduce our emissions of polutants and emissions of greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors to the climate change.
economy I frankly wish that the last Congress would have dealt with the stimulus issue and that the President could have signed that before leaving office. I think there is need for economic stimulus.
tax reform We can raise taxes on the people that are under the age of 55, that's one way we can do it. And one is to say we're gonna raise the retirement age, well that alone would… well I said we could raise taxes.
education I fully support the effort to extend the low interest rate on student loans. There is some concern that would expire halfway through the year, and I support extending the temporary relief on interest rates for students.
