Q. If you promise to control or reduce taxes tell us how and be specific. For example how do you propose offsetting the inflation in government operating costs you cannot control (insurance utilities fuel costs etc.) by cutting costs you can control?

A. In order to pare down government many functions need to be privatized. There is so much waste and duplication function specifically when a medicare patient uses his government provided insurance and an ER bills Medicare incorrectly it never gets paid our Senior Citizen is hounded to death The government worker sends the claim at point to a privatized claims adjuster who quickly denies the claim again and the $400 bill has used up twice or three times the value of the resources. If it was privatized the leach private company would start handling the claims and would have a vested interest in settling the claim. Now they get paid for being a rubber stamp
