All right America is asking and we are answering or at least trying to answer your questions Republican presidential -- candidate Gary Johnson has a lot to say He joins us now.
-- one of the best lines in the last debate on fox.
Anywhere in the debate last night why not we you know what I'm not included in the -- not included in the polls so my account that is 01.
I think at a minimum maps unfair or your complaint to CNN is what.
Let Larry Johnson have a voice full -- CNN polls ago I met 2% of the national votes in the last three CNN polls my name is not in the -- John I I just think that's unfair.
All right so we have been taking questions from our viewers Richard -- wants to know what's your position.
On opening up natural resources in this country for development I think that we should do that responsibly and can do that I think the two are intertwined that we can do that responsibly.
And if we drill for oil.
In fifteen years it's quite possible we could be producing 50% of our consumption which is significant lot of talk last night about the Herman -- 999 tax plan.
And -- three wants to know Gary Johnson do you agree with Herman cain's plan.
You know what I'm proposing to do was to throw out the entire federal tax system and replace it with a fair tax for those watching.
Get online fair tax dot org and it's been around for a long time but it throws out the entire federal tax system.
No income tax no corporate tax no business tax no YRS know -- holdings from your payroll check 23%.
And in an environment in a in a business environment with -- zero corporate.
If we don't if the private sector doesn't create tens of millions of jobs.
In that kind of environment.
It nothing will ever do that but what about the argument that -- congress has the ability to regulate rates you might start with a tax rate of 23% but pretty soon it's 28% toward.
Well on the on that argument then criticism of about Herman -- plan would be is that there are three.
Three notions that corporate tax income tax and a national consumption -- got three ways to get at it as opposed to one.
Be fair tax is revenue neutral.
And so it still involves cutting federal government spending -- 43% to balance the budget something that I'm also.
Promising to do is present -- United States is to submit.
A balanced budget to congress and I'm promising to veto any expenditures that exceed revenue.
And in that scenario that I just described I'm gonna argue to you that spending will be less than any other scenario that you could possibly put out there we don't have a lot of time for this question but Randy want Randy snow wants to know how would you fix the housing problem.
Well first of all I don't think there was ever -- fire sale when it came to housing I'm a free markets I'm a free market guy.
And when it came -- housing now we never had the fire sales of the market never got to see a bottom in housing.
I the government propped it up -- -- well it.
Propped it up not a nobody.
Nobody's kicked out of their houses we've yet to see the Firestone so we have this -- is that who knows how long it -- You know John on in the camp that believes or on the verge of a monetary collapse unless we actually.
Stop spending more money than from what we're what we're bringing in and so stop printing the money.
