Liberal questions?

Here's a list of the "liberal" yes-and-no questions posed in the Coeur d'Alene Press Voters Guide that state Rep. Kathy Sims, R-Coeur d'Alene, called a "threat" and refused to answer:

  1. Raise minium wage?
  2. Add the Words?
  3. Fund private/religious education?
  4. Increase gun rights?
  5. Increase abortion rights?
  6. Increase education spending?
  7. Increase Medicaid coverage?
  8. Increase taxes for highways and bridges?
  9. Provide more economic development incentives?
  10. Control some federal lands?
  11. Adopt a flat income tax?
  12. Should the 17th Amendment be repealed?

DFO: Good grief! I can guess what the answer for Sims is for most of the questions: 1. No, 2. No, 3. Yes, 4. Yes, 5. No, 6. No, 7. No, 8. Whatever IFF says, 9. Undecided, 10. Yes, 11. Dunno, 12. Yes. How did I do impersonating Sims?
