Phil Steck seems better than a lot of politicians in one respect – he actually takes positions on real issues.
I don’t agree with him on all of them, but at least he says something.
In March of 2009, Steck put himself firmly in favor of so-called gun control and against the rights of lawful gun owners.
According to the albany project, Steck supports single-payer health care. That sure makes him fit in with the Democrats.
You do have to wonder how we would pay for all that. And then there’s the related questions:
How about single-payer food? Single-payer cars? I mean really, shouldn’t the government buy our food and cars for us?
Don’t forget housing while you’re at it. And education – oh wait – we already have single-payer education.
But Phil went to private school. Hmm. Does he plan on having a single-payer health care system for everyone else? What will
the rich people do?
Kudos to Phil for opposing the War in Iraq early on. He really does deserve credit for that.
Well … I haven’t found anything to back up his claim that he opposed it early on, and I searched a lot. Hmm.
Tough to find him saying much more about issues.
On crime I’m disappointed in his faith in David Soares and support for the War on Drugs. It would be nice to see him step up on this.
He says he has experience in the criminal area but, in an interview on the savethepinebush website he stuck to the fuzzy middle ground.
See about, and news.
