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

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

I believe in removing the government from health insurance and return to a free market solution that would allow for patient to doctor relationships and fees. As with any business when you add a middle man the cost of services goes up.

Government should create an environment by removing itself and allowing the free market to work.

I would move to abolish the income tax and move to a Fair Tax system.

By cutting regulations and allowing a free markets to create competition and employment.

I have successfully taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution on three occasions. I was an Army Intelligence Professional and the Training Coordinator for the Secretary of General Staff on Fort Huachuca.
