Question 1: Taxation
Would you commit to working with Americans residing abroad to reform the current citizenship-based US tax system?
I pledge that I will vote against any increases in taxation or spending, support the proposed Balanced Budget Amendment and promote free market solutions that require little or no government intervention. In addition I will work to reform the current citizen based tax system and streamline or eliminated filing requirements for income earned outside US. I have committed to a pledge of tax reform with the organization: Americans for Tax Reform. Listed at: https://www.atr.org/pledge-database
Question 2: Services
Will you support on-line access to government agencies and adequate funding for consular functions upon which Americans abroad rely?
I support access to all government agencies and support for all American citizens living abroad. The American government must serve the citizen as prescribed in our founding documents. To do otherwise is a viloation of the contract between the government and its citizen from who authority it receives any and all of it's powers.
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?
Since the banking industry is highly regulated and federally insured, I think participation in the FDIC should require access for all American citizens.
