Republicans debate in Statesboro forum

Written by  Tuesday, 01 April 2014 09:59

  On Obamacare, Rick Allen advocated replacing it with private competition.


  John Stone called for sanctions against Russia instead of military intervention in Urkaine. Those troops, he said, would be more appropriate along the Mexican border.


  Diane Vann said deepening the Savannah harbor, improvements to the I-16 and I-75 interchange in Macon and approval of the Keystone XL pipeline were necessary to improve the economy. She also accused President Obama as ignoring the Constitution and following the Communist Manifesto instead.


  Delvis Dutton said the country needs to return to the principles of the Constitution and reduce federal regulations in education, health care and the private sector.


  Eugene Yu said he supports the use of the oil derived from marijuana as long as it pertains to laboratory or medical use.


Allen and Stone tossed a few barbs at each other at last night's forum. Stone criticized Allen for not debating last year and said he would replace Speaker John Boehner and other house leaders. Allen said Stone should not attempt to divide the Republicans and should, instead, concentrate on defeating Democrat John Barrow.
