    John White Has No Record [Berkeley, CA] Democratic Presidential nominee John White has no record of political leadership, says Republican Congressman Hector Lorraine-Montbatten, and would be an "unquantifiable risk" as President. "We just don't know how he operates, we don't know what his beliefs and ideas are, we don't know how effective he is; I think these are all questions that need to be answered in action before somebody gets the keys to the White House and has his hand on the nuclear button," the former Rear Admiral said. John White, who was elected to Congress in 1984, has failed to have any sponsored legislation become law or even be considered on the House floor since then and in today's global climate of uncertainty, adding more to the mix could prove an "unmitigated disaster for America and her allies." By contrast, the Republican nominee Anderson Kaine is a proven leader both in government and in his private life. "When you look at the two candidate's resumes side by side, you can't help but see a stark contrast. While Mr. White has never had a legislative success to speak of, Reverend Kaine has been active in promoting common-sense policies in his legislation and has a record of community service, having served his church as pastor for many years. The choice, I think, is clear as to who is best set to serve our country as President." -30-

    Fair Minimum Wage Act of 1987

    "Increasing the federal minimum wage would harm not only big business but small businesses across the United States. Not to mention a federal increase would not work to the advantage for the state of Montana compared to the state of New York. Living prices are cheaper in other states compared to states with large populations. This bill would only increase strains to middle Americans across the country, that is therefore the reason to veto said bill."
