Washington County (PA) Commissioner Diana Irey, running for PA's 12th District Congressional seat against Rep. Jack Murtha, is joining us for a live question and answer session beginning at 8:00 pm EDT on June 14th.


http://www.irey.com/about/

Thread background:

Beginning June 5th questions for Diana Irey were solicited and received from the Free Republic (FR) audience. Late on June 12th 37 questions from 24 posters were compiled and forwarded to two FR moderators and Diana Irey’s staff. No questions were removed for being judged as too easy, too difficult, etc. Some grammar corrections were made, and any editorial insertions are noted by brackets.

The two moderators then reviewed the entire list, and selected and prioritized the questions to be asked during our live thread. Ms. Irey’s staff was informed that this comprehensive list was merely a starting point for them to prepare detailed responses. Other, subsequently received questions could still be asked, and not all of the comprehensive list will be presented to her during the thread.

As of 5:00pm EDT 8 additional posters submitted another 14 questions for consideration.

Thread rules:

Thank you for your participation!

PLEASE REFRAIN FROM POSTING UNTIL THE INTERVIEW IS COMPLETED. Thank you.

I'm on the phone with Ms. Irey's staff. They're having computer difficulties and are rebooting.

Hello. Thank You all for taking some time out of your schedules to spend an hour with me tonight. I am grateful for your interest in the campaign. Justanobody's quote by Abraham Lincoln provided the inspiration for my press conference in D.C. I look forward to an interesting hour.

Glad you made it! Here we go.

BEGIN QUESTIONS:

This is a really good idea. I would ask Commissioner Irey: If she were to win and get into Congress, what would be her top three priorities that she would like to see achieved during her term? (jpl)

1. Win the War on Terror.
2. Secure our borders, and address the illegal immigration problem.
3. Reform our cumbersome tax code.

REMINDER TO EVERYONE: Questions were submitted in advance. Please do not post on this thread until the interview is completed. Thank you.
Three questions posed together:

Taxes. Pennsylvania is drowning in them! What are your positions on property tax relief, and income tax reform? (Sisku Hanne)

I'd like to know where [Diana] Irey stands on Tax Reform.

Flat Income Tax? Forbes style with huge personal exemptions, or truly flat from the first dollar?

Or does she favor wiping out the entire Income Tax system in favor of the Fair Tax? (Kellis91789)

What do you think about John Linder's Fair Tax proposal (House Bill HR 25, or Senate Bill SR 25)? (eyespysomething)
