Issues

Campaign themes

2012

VoteforEddie.Com's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Social Security & Medicare
Excerpt: "Social security and Medicare need a recalibration to face the current economical realities. Older Americans should not bear the brunt of this as they have put so much into the system already and deserve the benefits promised to them."
  • Tea Party & Occupy Wall Street
Excerpt: "Listing these two movements in the same breath is odd and the idea that they may be able to work toward a common goal borders on the incomprehensible. Nevertheless, I will try to align their interests to do what is best for America through the implementation of my National Energy Security Act (NESA)."
  • Energy Independence
Excerpt: "The first bill that I plan on bringing to the floor of Congress will be The National Energy Security Act, ("NESA"), which will be funded by allotting half of the current 18.4 cents per gallon federal gasoline tax to a renewable energy initiative. Using the funds generated from the allotment, which equal almost one billion dollars per month, I would have experts from all fields of science, energy & technology develop and implement a plan to free our country from a dependence on fossil fuels as quickly as possible."
  • Tax cuts
Excerpt: "The second bill called the Tax Relief for Emergency services, Armed forces & Teachers ("TREAT") act. The TREAT act will allow our uniformed men and women who put their life on the line everyday to be rewarded by paying less tax. Teachers are educating your children, and police and firemen are risking their lives to protect our citizens yet they are constantly facing salary freezes and budget cutbacks."
  • Gay & Lesbian Issues
Excerpt: "I fully support same sex marriage. I believe responsible adults can enter into whatever loving relationship they so choose and receive the same benefits as any "straight couple" would under the eyes of the law."
