From the Gwinnett Daily Post.
Woodall takes a minimalistic approach to government, while Heckman, who describes himself as a moderate, believes that government can provide some solutions.
“You have to ask yourself, how much government do I want in my life?” Heckman said. “This is a choice, in my opinion, between going forward or going back and repealing all the work we’ve accomplished the past few years.”
While Woodall wants to repeal the recent health care legislation, Heckman said portions should be changed. Woodall hopes to champion Linder’s FairTax legislation, which would repeal corporate and income taxes, while Heckman favors a less drastic tax simplification proposal.
Both agreed that the U.S. border should be sealed, but Heckman added that he wanted to offer amnesty to illegal immigrants already in the country.
In the forum, where nearly 300 students, professors and community members came out to Georgia Gwinnett College, District 4 congressional candidate Liz Carter also answered questions, although her opponent Democrat incumbent Hank Johnson did not attend.
“District 4 has not had honorable representation for some time,” Carter said. “We need people who are going to roll up their sleeves and actually get things done. … We need to move this country forward.”
