Supports McCain, but opposes some of his policies

Published: Mon, June 9, 2008 @ 3:27 p.m.

HOWLAND — Sen. George Voinovich took issue with Sen. John McCain during a local visit but still stressed his support for the Republican presidential candidate.

Voinovich, R-Ohio, spoke today to a gathering of Regional Chamber members and was asked by a member of the audience why he was supporting McCain despite some differences on policy.

“John is authentic and has good character,” Voinovich said. “To me, that’s the most important thing.”

Voinovich was clear in saying U.S. troops should be removed from Iraq. He also said taxes needed to be raised and defended the use of budget earmarks to provide money for local projects. McCain has called for troops to remain in Iraq, supported tax cuts and spoke against earmarks.

So Voinovich is basically saying, yes this guy is against everything I believe in. I am pretty certain that his policies will further drive our nation further in to the ground, but he is authentic and has good character so I'm all for him! We have to get rid of this guy when his term is up.

I think Voinovich is a decent, intelligent Senator, but if he is incapable of standing up for what he thinks is best for our state and our country then he needs to go.

There is a candidate who admits he's not good with economics. He is offering a tax proposal that would give the five largest oil companies $3.8 billion in tax breaks and he's opposed to increased tax to the richest in Americans. How does that help us, the average Americans? How does a tax break for the oil companies help with our commutes to work or vacation (if we even get one)!

Oil is $66/barrel in Saudi Arabia & $130 at least in US.
1 million homes are in FORECLOSURE!
1 trillion dollar reduction in Americans net worth!
The dollar is tanking big time overseas. Try traveling in Europe or Canada.
The US is 9 trillion dollars in debt.
A contributing factor to high gas prices are Arabic tribes blowing up oil pipelines.

Phil Gramm = lobbyist (paid by) UBS (Swedish bank) to kill/squash any bills created to help distressed homeowners from having their homes foreclosed.
"Winning the war" and more troops are committing sucide since the Gulf War.
"The Sliding Scale" GI Bill chosen over "Webb's Bill" requires vets to complete a 12 year tour before receiving a $2000/mo for each additional month served and $1500 to current active duty soldiers.
Squashing of Webb's Bill which provides GI Bill benefits after 3 year tour.
Cost difference in starting Webb's Bill vs The Sliding Scale Bill is $30 million total (Iraq war costs $720 million/day).
Dept of Veteran's affairs discourages use of mental health diagnoses of PTSD and use of diaganoses like adjustment disorder in order to deny disability beneits to vets from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bin Laden and the Bush family have a very lengthy and intertwined history. http://www.williambowles.info/guests/... Not sure of the candidate or if this info is factual (search for yourself).
