Rev. Isaac Hayes is running for Congress as a pro life Republican. He is challenging incumbent Jesse Jackson Jr. for the seat representing Illinois District #2. Jesse Jackson Jr., whose father has been the butt of many jokes and a favorite target of conservative pundits, Hayes is accusing Rep. Jackson Jr. of being a corrupt politician who has steered campaign money to his wife under different alias. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s name came up in the scandal involving President Obama's former senate seat and he has not been indicted on any charges. President Obama and the Democrats are off to a strong finish in the context of passing several pieces of reform legislation leading into the 2010 Congressional Elections. The recently passed Health Care legislation will be a point of contention with Republicans with some pledging a vote to repeal what the have deemed Obama-care. Jesse Jackson Jr. is proud of his yes vote for the people of District 2 and says that health care reform was historic and will lead to 30 million more Americans being insured. Rev. Isaac Hayes has some interesting views when it comes to taxes and the Black community. He believes there should be tax incentives to attract new businesses in underdeveloped urban communities. We will also be asking him about the Republican effort and the initiative the RNC Chairman Michael Steele set forth to attract Black voters to the party. Hayes says he is part of that effort but it has to make that job difficult when Chairman Steele is telling college students that Black people have no reason to support the Republican Party.
