What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   The Bible states there are two great Commandments and on these two Commandments hang all the law and the prophets 1. Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind 2. Love your neighbor as yourself These commandments serve as the foundation of my personal walk with God and my savior, Jesus Christ

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   My time as a Fox News contributor and counter-terrorism adviser to Vice-President Cheney both provide plenty of public evidence that I am a strong conservative. With that in mind, I have also fought to protect conservative ideals when not in the public eye, both on and off of the battlefield, consistently throughout my life and I plan to continue to do so in Congress.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   I believe free market principles, when properly implemented, will lower the cost of healthcare and in turn enable providers to give Americans the healthcare they need at a price they can afford.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   I believe the engine of our economy begins with the free market and small business, and with individuals freely making their own economic choices. I believe in limited government, and therefore the federal government should play an indirect role in the private sector economy by establishing a framework by which a fee market economy can thrive. These include a national currency, national infrastructure such as roads and ports, a predictable tax system, and enforcement of patents and IP protections to lower uncertainty and risk for corporations and entrepreneurs.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   I am a supporter of the Fair Tax Act and believe implementing this type of taxation system would greatly benefit the American people.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   As we have seen under this administration, cutting taxes, de-regulating, and empowering small business owners is the most effective way to lower U.S. unemployment. In Congress, I plan to continue to support our President's efforts to strengthen the U.S. economy.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   Many of the recommendations in the Simpson-Bowles bi-partisan commission such as raising the retirement age, and adjust the benefit formula, could serve as steps towards ensuring social security is solvent for future generations. Further, the funds in the social security accounts should not be used for other spending priorities.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

Soderberg:   (Did not answer)
Waltz:   As a native Floridian, former combat decorated Green Beret, Lt. Col. in the US Army, Fox News Contributor, former White House advisor, and small business owner, I believe I possess a unique skill set that has prepared me to serve in Congress and get things done for the people of my district.
