Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Answer from Alison Hayden:

User fees are the traditional and most fair way to pay for infrastructure projects.  For example, gas taxes pay for roads.  An equitable mechanism needs to be created for electric car use. 

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Answer from Alison Hayden:

Repeal the McCarran–Ferguson Act, (HR1418/S.350), that would open interstate competition of insurance.  This would dramatically cut premiums, increase the amount and quality of healthcare services offered and lower costs. 

The McCarran–Ferguson Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 1011-1015, is a United States federal law that exempts the business of insurance from most federal regulation, including federal antitrust laws to a limited extent. The McCarran–Ferguson Act was passed by the 79th Congress in 1945 after the Supreme Court ruled in United States.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Answer from Alison Hayden:

Enforce the existing immigration laws.  Repeal the visa lottery and chain migration laws.
