Questions & Answers

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

Government should not control anything. They should encourage good stewardship and responsibility to leave as small a footprint as possible. Incentives are the best: tax credits and pollution tax to encourage clean technology.

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

It is the responsibility of each individual, those that can not take care of themselves need to be cared for properly in a private service way.

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

Reform the current H2A and H2B to set quotas and housing requirements. Create a website that will list all positions held by immigrant workers. Citizens and legal residents should be given preference for any job for which they qualify.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League.
