Scott Wallace on 2018 U.S. House election for PA 1st District


I would not say that we agree on climate
I would not say that we agree on guns There’s so many differences. Number one
he takes endless corporate PAC money and I do not I will not take a dime from a
corporate pack or a lobbyist he’s taken a million bucks
he is anti-choice he wants to defund Planned Parenthood I believe in a
woman’s right to choose I believe in Planned Parenthood on guns
he says he wants to prevent gun violence but he is for the NRA’s number one
legislative priority: concealed carry reciprocity which is allowing someone
from Texas from out of state come into Pennsylvania with a concealed weapon
that is legal in Texas and walk into a church or a school here in Pennsylvania
no matter what Pennsylvania law says that’s Brian Fitzpatrick’s priority on
guns I think Democrats that everybody needs
to take a deep breath and wait for Robert Mueller to do his job. I am running
to get a seat in the US Congress which will in essence be a jury on whatever
Robert Mueller decides you don’t get on to a jury with your mind already made up
to convict or to acquit let’s wait The biggest challenge for our criminal
justice system is switching what we measure, switching the metrics instead of
measuring just convictions let’s measure crime prevention. Let’s count our
successes at getting a drug addict off drugs, at getting someone with mental
illness the treatment that they need someone with PTSD getting them the
proper treatment we must focus more on preventing recidivism than simply
locking people up Yes, I believe drugs must be treated as a
health problem and the number one mission should be harm reduction we have
to reduce the amount of addiction the amount of disease and the more the
government can regulate and see the harms that are being caused and play a
constructive role in making them more healthy and perhaps intervene with
access to treatment the better off society will be less drug abuse and less
crime I support of reconfiguring of our tax
system which currently is skewed toward the very top end the tax bill that we
just enacted two trillion dollars the vast majority of it went to wealthy
investors, 40% of whom by the way are not American so $400 billion was
shipped abroad in the form of boosted value of stocks that were bought back by
the companies we can do so much more if we target that four hundred billion
dollars or that trillion dollars or the next three trillion dollar bill that the
Republicans have teed up targeted specifically to creating jobs building
infrastructure raising wages fund the Department of Labor to improve working
conditions and strengthen unions so that they can collectively bargain for better
wages and working conditions for the working people of America
