Campaign themes


Feinland's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Take A Stand Against Corporate Domination
Excerpt: "It's no surprise that Congress voted to bail out the banks while working class people are losing their homes and their jobs. The corporations win and the people lose on every issue."
  • Jobs and the Economy
Excerpt: "We need a stimulus bill which puts people to work building housing, fixing schools and hospitals, and creating, expanding, and improving public transportation systems. We need to clean up toxic sites, restore habitats, and install rooftop solar energy systems. We can fund this by taxing rich people and corporate profits. "
  • Housing for People, not for Profit
Excerpt: "Stop evictions and foreclosures. Under our market driven system, housing is built by real estate developers to be sold for a profit. Because everyone needs a place to live, demand is high and the price of housing goes up faster than wages and the average rate of inflation."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "We need a system which covers all of us. Socialized medicine, like the British system, or single payer, as in Canada or variations in France, Australia, and Germany provide effective health care for everyone in those countries. The cost is lower and outcomes better than the insurance and pharmaceutical company controlled situation here."
