? 1. What, if anything, do you believe the federal government should do to control global climate change?

Answer from John Roberts:

Global Climate change is a world wide issue that may or may not be influenced by human activity. I believe we need to address these issues globally because the worst offenders are in developing countries.

? 2. What should the federal government do, if anything, to ensure that every American has health coverage?

Answer from John Roberts:

Clearly health care should be addressed by the Federal Government. I believe that significant tax credits for health care is the most effective may to address this issue. I do not support another ineffective government run program.

? 3. What, if anything, should the federal government do about immigration?

Answer from John Roberts:

There is no major problem with Immigration. There is a major problem with illegal entry to this country through unsecured borders. Terrorists, drug dealers, deported criminals all have easy access to the US because of unsecured borders. Border security has to be a top priority.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League.
