Americans Helping Americans Abroad

District 03, Michael Mullen

Question 1: Taxation

Would you commit to working with Americans residing abroad to reform the current citizenship-based US tax system?

Yes. I believe tax simplification overall is worthy goal and appropriate in this case as well. The complexity of the current system not only adds cost in time and money but also makes the system less transparent and thus potentially more susceptible to corruption and manipulation.

Question 2: Services

Will you support on-line access to government agencies and adequate funding for consular functions upon which Americans abroad rely?

Yes. I believe the State Department is one of most important agencies and needs much great support than this administration is providing. The State Department and Americans living overseas are often the best window into our culture and values for the rest of the world.

Question 3: Banking

Would you support an enforceable right for all US citizens to a US bank account so they can retain their US savings and retirement accounts and make and receive payments in the United States?

Yes.

Message from the Candidate:

I'm is running as an independent because I believe we need to get past the divisive partisan politics and the influence of big money so that representatives can serve the needs of their constituents. To do this I support:
* Reversing Citizens United
* Enforcing and expanding existing disclosure laws
* Ensuring redistricting is non-partisan and expanding access to the ballot through programs like Automatic Voter Registration.

As those barriers to collaboration are removed I will work to find common ground on issues like:
* A fair economy
* Access to quality healthcare and education
* Protecting our environment
* Civil rights for all
* Developing a safe and sustainable energy policy for the 21st century.
