Fiorina's positions on the issues:


Taxes

Is it important to tax the rich more to reduce the wealth gap?

Fiorina says: No.

From Breitbart: ""[W]e need to go from a 70,000-page tax code to about a three-page tax code. From my point of view, the blueprint for doing that, for that tremendous simplification is a point of view that says 'lower every rate, close every loophole.'""

Immigration

How should we deal with illegal immigrants?

Fiorina says: Allow them to become legal residents.

From the Washington Times: "Mrs. Fiorina, who is running for the GOP presidential nomination, also said she could support giving those who "have come here illegally and stayed here illegally" legal status. "I think legal status is a possibility for sure," Mrs. Fiorina said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I think their children maybe can become citizens.""

The Deficit

Should the government be allowed to borrow more money even though it is already in debt?

Fiorina says: No.

From the Washington Examiner: "Carly Fiorina criticized President Obama's economic policies as damaging to the middle class and pledged to submit a balanced budget during her first term on Wednesday morning. "One of the keys to submitting a balanced budget is knowing where the money's being spent," Fiorina said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "Where I would start is to submit a plan for zero-based budgeting because we have to be able to talk about all the money.""

Health Care

How should the government ensure that Americans receive health care?

Fiorina says: Repeal ObamaCare and let people buy insurance if they want.

From Breitbart: ""We need to try what we have never tried in the health insurance market, which is actually the free market... Insurance has been a regulated oligopoly for decades and decades and decades... we need to try the free market, which actually provides for real competition. We know that real competition provides greater choices, greater value, and lower prices... Obamacare needs to be repealed. The law itself is longer than a Harry Potter novel. It is accompanied by tens of thousands of pages of additional regulation.""

Gun Control

What should be done to prevent more mass shootings in America?

Fiorina says: Make it easier for Americans to own guns, so people can defend themselves.

From PBS: "Fiorina has said that she is a strong supporter of second-amendment gun rights and that she opposed the 1994 bill which banned a large group of semi-automatic or assault weapons. In the 2010 U.S. Senate race, Fiorina said the No-Fly list is broad and some people on it should be allowed to own a gun."

Criminal Justice

Is police brutality against African Americans a problem?

Fiorina says: No. Aside from rare instances, police officers already treat African Americans fairly.

From Fox News: "Do "black lives matter" or do "all lives matter"? Megyn [Kelly] asked. "First of all, of course all lives matter," Fiorina said."

Climate

Should the government do more to prevent climate change due to burning of oil and gas?

Fiorina says: No.

From the National Review: "The short version of Fiorina's argument is this: If the scientific consensus is that man-made climate change is real, there is also consensus that America, acting alone, cannot stop it. Indeed, the Chinese are only too happy to watch us constrict our economy as they capture the market in clean coal."

Gay Marriage

Gay marriage should

Fiorina says: Be illegal.

From Breitbart: ""I [] know that for millions and millions of us, marriage has a spiritual foundation. It is a religious institution and only a man and woman can create life, which is a gift that comes from God, and while not everyone may agree with us, I think it it vitally important that we respect and protect people's rights to hold that view.""

ISIS

How should America fight ISIS?

Fiorina says: Airstrikes and support for other countries to fight ISIS.

From the Hill: ""I disagree that we're at that point where we need to put tens of thousands of boots on the ground," [Fiorina] said [on] ABC News's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos." ... "I think the Jordanians, the Saudis, the Kuwaitis, the Kurds and the Egyptians are all fighting ISIS as we speak on the ground," she said. "They know this is their fight. Yes, they need leadership, resolve support and material from us. We haven't provided any of it. And if we did, it will make a big difference.""

Russia

How should America respond to Russian aggression?

Fiorina says: Push back, even if it risks war.

From Breitbart: "Fiorina identified another of her foreign policy priorities as "to finally push back against [Russian President] Vladimir Putin." Noting how Putin had consolidated political, military and economic power, and was "making real progress on territorial power" but was "basically not being challenged at all." Fiorina criticized the Obama administration as "providing a false choice" between its weak approach and going to war."
