Iraq Policy

Iraq should PAY UP FIRST, then they will STAND UP QUICKER and America can stand down. Iraq should be divided into FIVE (5) separate nations, a Kurdistan, a Sunni-Land, a Persian Shiite and Arab Shiiite nation, and Jordanian-Saudi area, that way they will not fight amongst themselve for ALL THE OIL, and we can leave FIVE democracies behind, terror defeated, and AMerica made safer.

Federal Budget & Fiscal Policy
Fiscal Policy, a General Statement

The $9 Trillion Dollar Debt celing (8.5 Trillion debt and growing) was voted for by my opponent Herb Kohl, with 300 Million AMericans, that is a Tax Bill for $30,000 each and that only pays for past spending, which is why the National Taxpayer Union gave Herb Kohl an F rating. I will stop wasteful spending, unlike my multimillionaire tax and spending spree incumbent of 18 years, we need to do so, to keep the debt off our backs and the backs of our children, to allow the economy to grow, to stop public debt from driving up mortgage interest rates and increase interest and inflation rates, all which these spenders in Washington are guilty of.
