Editor-in-chief, OnTheIssues.org

 


Cut aircraft carriers and military bases abroad by 50%

Q: The U.S. defense spending is larger than that of the next seven largest defensebudgets. We must firmly reject any increase to defense spending at the cost of cuts to domestic social spending.

A: Agree.

Candidate's position on this issue: I support a defense spending cut of 50%, starting with having too many aircraft carrier groups and too many military bases abroad.

Social programs for vets, but not as back-door for military

Q: Taking care of our veterans is a cost of war. The Department of Veterans Affairs must be fully funding and expanded so that every veteran gets the care that they have earned and deserve. Additionally, claim processing, mental health and dental services, and access to the VA must be improved.

A: Agree.

Candidate's position on this issue: I support funding social programs for vets, but I am wary of a back-door for more military funding
