Ken Buck (Colorado):

  • believes being gay is a lifestyle “choice.”
  • Social security is a “horrible policy.”
  • Roe v. Wade was poorly decided.

Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania)

  • Suggests imprisoning doctors who provide abortion,
  • hate crime legislation is “an attempt to criminalize thought,”
  • voted yes to ban adoption by same-sex couples.

And…”My idea of gun control is a steady aim.”
