Where Sheldon Schafer Stands on the Issues

Energy & Global Warming

I will continue working to protect life on earth - sustainably, with a consistent life approach to environmental protection and climate change. I will lead Congress in creating legislation to significantly and aggressively mitigate the effects of climate change, unencumbered by special interest lobbying, and I will be instrumental in moving the federal government toward a large scale commitment of public resources directed toward conservation and developing decentralized, sustainable and renewable non-nuclear and non fossil-fuel sources of energy.

The Economy & Jobs

Small business is responsible for at least 50% of the nation's jobs, yet small businesses received 36% fewer SBA business loans in 2009 than in 2008. Loans decreased from $12.7 billion to $9.3 billion. If we're going to recover jobs and economic stability, we must support local small business over big corporate special interests. We must insure that public recovery monies reach these vital links to our livelihoods and our economy.

Taxes & Fiscal Responsibility

I will advocate and model government guided by the values that matter here at home. Our government must embody the principles and ideals of our people in all things, and especially in matters of fiscal responsibility and budgeting, tax policies, and transparency in government.

Health Care Reform

Healthcare must be tackled as a public service instead of a business that is driven by profits to pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and a few less-than-scrupulous physicians. Healthcare cannot be selective in its coverage of human life. I believe that healthcare must be cost effective and evidence-based. We can reduce administrative costs to half of the current 33% for every healthcare dollar we spend. Looking to the fair and efficient systems we find in Medicare, the Veterans Administration, and other model private programs, we can, and must, devise a working system that can be expanded into universal coverage.
