Questions & Answers

1. In this time of high unemployment and budget deficits, what are the most important steps that should be taken to improve our nationís economy and sustain job creation?

Passing Immigration Reform will do more to help improve this nation's economy more than almost anything else.

2. What, if any, changes should be made to federal health care policies or programs?

The employer mandate should be removed from the Affordable Care Act. We need to provide a better healthcare system for our Veterans.

3. What are your priorities with respect to our nationís energy policy?

The country needs to invest more in clean energy which will reduce our dependency on foreign oil, protect the environment and create jobs.

4. What, if any, changes should be made with respect to our nationís security, including our national defense or anti-terrorism measures?

There needs to be more accountability for Defense spending. We need a strong national defense, but when we spend $34 million for a command center in Afghanistan that was never used, over $400 million for tanks the Secretary of the Army doesn't want and countless other examples. We do need a strong defense, but we need to spend our money better and for training/equipment for conflicts of the future.

5. What is your position on the issue of immigration reform? What, if any, changes to legislation or policy would you support?

I support Immigration Reform with a pathway to citizenship.
