Issues

Campaign themes

2012

On his campaign website, Anderson lists five issues. They are:[2]

  • Taxes
  • On her website, Anderson says, "The people are being overtaxed, but the Fortune 100 are getting away with exemptions. In other words, the corporations are not paying the required 35% rate. This includes Google, GM, GE, and many others. If we were to make the corporations pay, then it would be feasible to grant a tax decrease to all citizens."
  • Healthy Food
  • On her website, Anderson says, "Stop the GMOs! Genetically modified organisms are everywhere in our food, and it's not safe. What's alarming is that there are no experts in nutrition in the US Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry. I see myself serving in this committee, and I can bring my knowledge of nutrition to the forefront."
  • Cancer
  • On her website, Anderson says, "Cancer rates are going to skyrocket in the near future. There are ways to prevent cancer and some procedures may have an effect to reverse cancer have not been approved by the FDA. There needs to be a fair investigation."
  • Reverse bad laws
  • On her website, Anderson says, "Repeal all laws that are unconstitutional (NDAA, Patriot Act, Healthcare Bill, Financial Reform)."
  • End the war
  • On her website, Anderson says, "End the illegal wars and make Congress vote on them. True Christians would not seek to murder."[2]
