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

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   Health care should be treated with the same dedication and public support national defense receives. When the Rights of a citizen, or other vital interest of this Republic, are threatened by a foreign power we respond with overwhelming force. We spare no expense to defend the lives and liberty of our people. Why then when those same citizens face the similar threats from microbes or other ailments do we leave them to face the threat alone? I propose that we implement a system to train equip and deploy the medical personnel necessary to defend the Citizens of this republic against all medical threats.
Rutherford:   (Did not answer)
Selmont:   (Did not answer)

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   Our government exists to provide the public with those goods and services vital to all, but that none can provide for themselves. The money for this has to come from somewhere, so I do not favor cutting taxes for its own sake. Many of the policies I support will require additional investment that will need to be funded. Infrastructure is one example of this as we need to invest heavily into our infrastructure if we are to have any hope of adapting to climate change and sustaining economic prosperity. Job training is another area worthy of our tax dollars, and to this end I favor improving our compulsory education system to provide us with the human resources necessary to meet the needs of society.
Rutherford:   (Did not answer)
Selmont:   (Did not answer)

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   We need to adjust certain parts of the tax code to keep pace with inflation, and we must evaluate all tax incentives and breaks to see if they are still beneficial to our Republic.
Rutherford:   (Did not answer)
Selmont:   (Did not answer)

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   Investing in infrastructure and education so that educated citizens can find places to do valuable work.
Rutherford:   (Did not answer)
Selmont:   (Did not answer)

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   Properly funding the Social Security trust fund.
Rutherford:   (Did not answer)
Selmont:   (Did not answer)

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

Berrios:   (Did not answer)
Bulger:   I hold the Congress in such high esteem as to believe no one is actually qualified to hold such offices, but through my character and dedication to this country I hope provide effective and independent representation for the people of the Fourth District of Florida.
