Questions for Congresswoman Hart (update)

I'm going to start a list of questions that I, and I'm sure others in PA04 would like to ask Congresswoman Hart. This list will be constantly updated as I peruse her voting backround, also feel free to add your own in the comments, and I will add them to the list.

1. Why did you vote "yea" for the "For the relief of the parents of Theresa Marie Schiavo" bill? The case had already been adjudicated. Did you put politics above a family's most private matters? In the future, will you continue to use your office to try to overrule state court decisions if it means political gain for the Republican Party?

2. Where do you stand on Social Security? Correct me if I'm wrong but it is not even mentioned on your website. Do you agree with your president when he says,"There is no "trust fund," just IOUs?
I've always believed that US Treasuries, are backed by the "full faith and credit" of the US Government, do you agree?

update 10/02/05
3. Where do you stand on the separation of church and state? Do you agree with the founding fathers of this great nation, who so eloquently wrote "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," and felt it was so important, that it they made it the first line of the first amendment of the constitution. The principal that has caused religion to flourish in, and make America the most religiously diverse country in the history of the world. Are you in agreement with the founding fathers?

Or do you support the Bush administration's continual erosion of the first amendment? Do you support Bush's anti-constitutional, faith based initiatives, a program where the President decides which religions to support by giving them US citizen's tax revenues.

Do you agree with Bush's views on the teaching of religious views in our public schools? When asked about it by a reporter on Aug. 2, 2005 Bush said he believes schools should discuss "intelligent design" alongside evolution when teaching students about the creation of life. If you do think this is appropriate, what other religious beliefs and from which religions, do you think should be forced into American schoolchildren's curriculum?
