Equality/Civil Liberties and Minorities:
Braun is in favor of affirmative action. She believes it's existence benefits entire communities, not just the minority or female individuals who receive opportunities.(*)
She favors passage of a federal bill prohibiting job discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and expression and supports inclusion of sexual orientation, gender identity and expression in hate crime laws.
Braun wants to eliminate tax loopholes and incentives for foreign operations in order to encourage companies to operate in America.
Braun feels the current method of funding schools mainly by local property taxes is outdated. She wants the federal government to increase its educational funding while still allowing local control.
Braun opposed the decision to go to war in Iraq but supports giving the military ample support to finish the job it has started.(*)
Braun supports the right to chose, an increase in spending for family planning programs and insurance coverage for birth control. She is against requiring parental permission to give reproductive health care to minors.
