? 1. What, if anything, do you believe the federal government should do to control global climate change?

Answer from Steve Young:

Our leaders have control over the direction the United States and the world takes on climate change. We must listen to the experts in NASA and NOAA and take immediate steps to reduce America's carbon footprint.

? 2. What should the federal government do, if anything, to ensure that every American has health coverage?

Answer from Steve Young:

Mandate health care for all.

? 3. What, if anything, should the federal government do about immigration?

Answer from Steve Young:

Immigration is a global issue caused by ill founded trade agreements. I have a 3 part solution that addresses the roots of the issue, while assuring both border security and national security. You can read about it at
