That’s what Steve Stivers checked on a recent candidate questionnaire by the the Tea Party.
Congresswoman Mary Jo Kilroy’s campaign has a petition defending the right of Ohioans to directly elect their U.S. Senators.
Stivers also proposes getting rid of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Housing, Agriculture, Education, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Veterans Affairs, and Energy.
Stivers also indicated that he would support replacing the income tax with a sales tax, support the elimination of automatic withholding of taxes, eliminate the ability of family members to petition the government to allow the legal immigration of their family members, and eliminate statutory authority giving environmental groups standing to bring lawsuits on behalf of the public.
Stivers also said the Bush Administration was justified in using enhanced interrogation techniques, but couldn’t say whether waterboarding was torture.
None of this, of course, will be a problem for Stivers in the general, especially the part that implies he’d vote to eliminate the Department of Veterans Affairs.
