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 I've always been in favor of preventing discrimination against people whether they are homosexual or straight... at the same time I said marriage is between one man and one woman, and that position has not changed. I read now in that I've changed my position on gay rights. I believe in gay rights, but I believe marriage is between one man and one woman.
healthcare On Medicare, that's the big monster there, we're going to have to reform our healthcare system.
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 Regulation is essential. You can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation.
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.
