My main issues are education, healthcare, and drug reform. Education is important everywhere, children are our future and it starts with a good education. Another is Healthcare; everyone should have a chance for good healthcare. No one should be denied healthcare because of their job or how much they make. My last issue is drug reform; drugs can be good and bad based on how they are used.
Ken Cuccinelli believes all of Virginia’s children regardless of the color of their skin, where they live or how much money their parents make deserve an opportunity to receive a world class education. In order to ensure all of our students have the best possible education, we must empower parents with the option to determine the best academic setting for their child’s education. A child shouldn’t have to go to a failing school or an unsafe school. Despite Virginia’s success on the whole, not every Virginia student has the opportunity to experience a quality education. There are many communities in Virginia where students are struggling to keep up with their peers around the state.
Ken thinks healthcare costs are continuing to balloon at an unsustainable rate, which not only hurts families, but also presents a significant challenge to our state government. He opposes the new healthcare reform and wants to change it to the way it used to be. He believes strongly that healthcare should be up the doctors or families not the government. Our healthcare system is bloated with rules and regulations that make health insurance more expensive and care less accessible. A reformed system would provide better care to Virginians, while at the same time saving taxpayer dollars.
Cuccunelli is open to all options says if we had to fight pot or meth he would spend his money on tightening meth. Cuccunelli stated that he didn’t know about Virginia yet, he and others are watching to see how Colorado and Washington play it out first. I’m ready to watch and learn from others before I act but it could be helpful. He would vote for the legalization of marijuana because it would be a great tax income. He is open to any new drug reform that fights hard drugs. He wants to fight other drugs like pills, crack, meth ect. He really wants to crack down on pills being sold illegally.
Terry McAuliffe says we’re not doing enough to support our schools. Our teachers need to be relieved of the growing amount of paperwork and administrative tasks so they can focus on the job they signed up for: educating our kids offer every. parent charter schools and public school choice. Education is the single most important thing we can do to build a strong Virginia and what our kids need to build successful lives. Whether they want to invent something or start a business it all starts with a good education. Right now we are not doing enough to help our kids.
