We now consider
Michele Bachmann's positions on key issues.
Michele Bachmann's positions on social issues include banning all abortions,
including after rape or incest (see
Abortion Is Murder), as well as all
homosexual marriages (see
About Homosexuality); Michele
Bachmann supports a Constitutional amendment to define marriage as between one man
and one woman.
On the economic front, Michele Bachmann's positions include phasing out Social Security and Medicare, eliminate the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), as well as the federal minimum wage, and repeal the
recently enacted federal healthcare coverage law.
While Michele Bachmann has been a small business owner and a tax attorney, her
business experience is relatively limited and this is reflected in the lack of depth
in the economic plan she has proposed.
On the foreign policy front, Michele Bachmann strongly supports Israel and does not
rule out a
pre-emptive military strike against Iran's nuclear program. Her foreign
policy experience is limited but as a member of the House Select Committee on
Intelligence, she does receive briefings from both the Central Intelligence Agency
(CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA). She also opposes granting amnesty
to illegal immigrants already inside the country.
