Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

  • Jobs and Tax Reform
Excerpt: "Susan Shelley supports a new constitutional amendment to repeal the entire U.S. income tax code and replace it with a five percent flat tax on income — personal income, corporate profits, capital gains, dividends, interest, income of any kind — above a level set by Congress."
  • Medicare and Social Security
Excerpt: "The answer to the insolvency of Social Security and Medicare is not benefit cuts or tax increases. It's more jobs at higher wages."
  • Illegal Immigration
Excerpt: "Even though most illegal immigrants are hard-working, decent people who are doing the best they can for their families under difficult circumstances, we just can't afford to subsidize the education, health care, housing, transportation and general living expenses of every impoverished person who comes to this country illegally."
  • Iraq and Afghanistan
Excerpt: "The only bloodless way out of these countries is for the U.S. to make our economic and military aid contingent on complete privatization of all government-owned property and enterprise."
  • Israel
Excerpt: "Susan Shelley opposes any effort by the United States to pressure Israel into entering "peace talks" with those who do not recognize Israel's right to exist."
