Florida Congressional District 15 race: Dennis Ross vs Jim Lange on issues

Reading Lange’s page on the issues, he sounds like an even-minded moderate, but lets run down some quotes.

JOBS: “Well-paying jobs can be created restoring our roads and bridges…Ports, airports, and major research centers that are either within our district or provide jobs to District 15 constituents.”

SPREADING THE WEALTH: “Many farmers are small business owners who are not receiving their due from the federal government.  It is unacceptable that the top 10% of farms collect 75% of farm subsidies, while the bottom 62% do not receive any subsidies leaving many of our local farmers out to dry.”

AGAINST VOUCERS: “Public schools and public school teachers have been under attack as there have been widespread efforts to shift public school funding to private school voucher programs and privately-owned charter schools.”

STUDENT LOANS: “I support reforming the existing federal student loan system.

These reforms include policies that will:

•             End the federal government from making a profit on student loans;

•             Substantially cut loan interest rates;

•             Allow Americans with existing student loans to refinance at today’s low interest rates.

SUPPORTS OBAMACARE: “I believe access to healthcare is an inalienable right and the Affordable Care Act was a good first step in providing this right. ”

Lange resorts to liberal talking points, supports abortion, gay marriage, medicare and makes Jim Crow remarks when talking about criminal justice.

He claims to support the second amendment, opposes NSA “spying” and sounds moderate on immigration.

Lange says: ” Climate change is real. It is already causing measurable problems in the United States and around the globe. Supporting the scientific community’s conclusions about climate change, there are a few key solutions that could reverse our dangerous trending.  We should move away from our unhealthy reliance on fossil fuels and encourage investment in sustainable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and geothermal.  As a member of Congress, I will support all legislation that promotes sustainable energy. ”

Ross has been a vocal opponent of global warming legislation.
