Market fails poor kids-push funds for Digital Divide

Q: Should we spend government funds to address the “digital divide?” A: In rural areas of America and in the inner city, kids are being left behind when it comes to the Internet. Once again, we’re leaving some of our children back instead of making sure they can take part in all the advances that I think are down the road. The marketplace is great but it doesn’t always work perfectly. And as president, I would be willing to use the bully pulpit of my office in order to try to make sure that access was there. Also tax incentives for companies, I think that’s a fair thing to do. While we’re running a surplus, it seems to me these are some useful ways to use a little bit of that money.

Keep Internet tax-free; lower taxes for Main Street too

Q: Do you support taxing Internet commerce?A: Yes, I support keeping the Internet tax-free. But I am not going to be cavalier about what small mom and pop operations on Main Street are facing. They already get the short end of the stick. They’re over-taxed. They’re over-regulated. So while I’ll keep the Internet tax-free, as president I will fight to lower taxes on the small mom and pop stores all over the country.

School vouchers to reduce disparity of technology have-nots

Q: What would you do about the growing disparity between technological haves and have-nots? A: We’ve got a real disparity in American education. Many of the suburbs have a lot of resources. But in the inner cities, we’ve got schools that just aren’t working. [We should] provide educational choice for those parents. Vouchers will make real progress on this issue so that we don’t have another whole generation left behind on one of the most important advances that the country is experiencing.
