Clinton: Support. Tffe Clin- ton'administration has taken action to promote fairness in our system so that family farmers and ranchers can continue to make a good living. Dole: Bob Dole has led efforts to pass the most environmen- tally sensitive farm bill ever by encouraging greater planning flexibility for American farmers and ranchers.

By reducing estate taxes, capital gains taxes and balancing the federal budget, Bob Dole will help rural Ameri- ca prosper. Foreign Aid What is your position on increased U.S. assistance to poor countries to meet the needs of poor people through expanded aid for sustainable development and debt relief?. Clinton: Support. As we work to target our assistance pro- grams toward the areas in which they can do the most good, we must also work to ensure that those programs are adminis- tered more efficiently. President Clinton regrets that Congress has decided to make excessive cuts in U.S. assistance to sus- tainable development abroad. Dole: Foreign aid must be a precisely targeted instrument of American foreign policy, largely designed to advance specific U.S. foreign policy goals. In order to reduce wasteful spend- ing, the foreign aid bureaucracy must be reformed. However, Bob Dole has been a strong advocate of providing humanitarian assistance where needed. Human Rights What is your position on mak- ing the defense of human rights -- including religious liberty a central concern of U.S. foreign polio; especially in places where human rights are most at risk, by linking other policies (e.g., trade preferences or milita aid) to a country's performance on human rights?

Promoting religious liberty is central to this policy. Dole: Support. The promotion of human rights is key to the creation of a more stable and secure international environ- ment. Bob Dole will pursue mea- sures that integrate human rights into U.S. foreign policy, including the use of traditional diplomatic tools like the curtail- ment of military aid and the imposition of economic sanc- tions.

These families should be eligible for medical and other help when they fall on hard times through no fault of their own. Dole: Bob Dole does not believe that those who have entered our country illegally are entitled to government welfare services. Bob Dole joined Gov. Pete Wilson in supporting Proposition 187 which denies benefits to illegal immigrants. However, he would oppose a con- stitutional amendment denying automatic birthright citizenship to illegal-immigrant children born in the U.S. Labor Relations What is your position on poli. cies which protect the right to collective bargaining, including legislation to prohibit the per- manent replacement of striking workers? Clinton: Support. President Clinton believes that the fight to save the American dream begins with the fight to save America's working families. That is why he supports the right of employees to bargain collectively and their right to strike. Dole: Oppose. Bob Dole oppos- es the so-called striker replace- ment bill. This bill would have overturned more than 60 years of Supreme Court precedent that has preserved the delicate bal- ance between labor and man- agement.
