Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

I propose expanding the ability of uniting family members. I would fold them into the work visa program. Most importantly for 42% of undocumented or and serial immigration violators, no ability to receive Medicare or Medi-Cal benefits unless they have lived in this country for 15yrs. They would be welcome to come so long as they or their family sustained them. This is exactly what most every other country in the world does.

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

No wall can be long enough or tall enough to help one of our largest problems; that is Visa Overstays. I propose solving those problem through market/merit based immigration reform.

Having said that, we must still have an increased physical barrier to deal with drug smuggling and human trafficking.  My work visa program will generate $27 billion per year, more than enough to fund any physical and legal barriers solutions that the experts believe will secure our borders.

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

I am a strong proponent of our constitutional right to bear arms.

Recent research suggests that there is a greater coraltion with gun violence and threee factors: 1) Mental Illness, 2) Broken Homes, 3) Economic Insecurity.

In California we currently have the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. I do not believe the we need more federal laws to further restrict responsible gun ownership. There is certainly room for more efficiency in federal background checks.

The bottom line is: I have seen the most deranged evil in the world “up close and personal” in my fights with ISIS. It was personal gun ownership I witnessed first-hand that stopped the evil.  It is the evil of this broken world that is the  problem with gun violence, not the implements.  Sub-Humans will do unspeakable evil and that is the reality. No amount of laws can stop this fact.

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

I would like to see the best parts of it preserved. Specifically, with Mexico, it is in our best interest that they have a prosperous economy for a variety of security reasons.  In general, I disfavor multi-lateral trade treaties. I much prefer bi-lateral trade negotiations. In the past, the U.S. has needlessly relinquished too much sovereignty to Globalist coalitions that do not remotely have Americas best interests at heart.

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

No. The Congress has proven unable to spend the money for existing gas taxes on infrastructure.  Rather, I have called on the President (on a selective basis as a demonstration) to declare in California 5 or 6 of the most important infrastructure projects a State of Emergency. This will allow the temporary waiving of the Davis-Bacon Act and reduce costs. It is a holdover from the 1930’s depression era jobs and labor dynamic that just don’t exist today. Based on non-partisan budget analysis this would result in the reduction of 22% of total costs. From the demonstration, I would move in Congress to have the Davis-Bacon Act repealed permanently.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Mike Schmitt:

As a Doctor and a professional, we take an oath to be a life-long learner. That is to say, when better treatment protocols are proven we have an ethical duty not only to be aware of them through continuing education, but to also implement them.

There has been an experiment going on for 30+ years that has proven a better way.

I propose to take the best proven attributes of the Singapore healthcare system an apply them to fix our system; portability, no restrictions on preexisting conditions, better infant mortality, better access, longer lifespans. The secret is to have a professional nonpolitical actuary core setting fees for catastrophic best practice based hospital and long-term care coupled with large transferable and inheritable Health Empowerment accounts.

The bottom line is they have lower health costs, they spend 4% of their GDP vs our nearly 18%.
