My Top 3 Priorities

  • Pass a Term Limit Bill on our representatives for a time, no longer then eight years.
  • Abolish the 'Income Tax Act' which in turn will require a repeal of the 16th Amendment and the removal of the IRS.
  • Unify and Amend the two party system, which is at the center cause of division within our country and would remove the need for party voter registry.

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Answer from Daniel Mercuri:

I strongly believe that most of our problems stem from a national debt that is truly unsustaining. If we can't take care of the debt, then how do we expect to handle our roads, rails and electrical grid when resources are going to place that should have never exited in the first place. The Federal Reserve. I move to pass that we 1) Abolish the Income Tax Act, 2) Dismantle the IRS, 3) Repeal the 16th Amendment and 4) Remove of off our fiat and Re-Establish the gold standard to our currency. Since their isn't enough gold to go around, our country needs to use other precious commodities such as silver, palladium and platinum to safe gaurd our currency. 5) Introduce a new standard of banking by removing the Federal Reserve. This can easily be done by incorporating cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Blockchain Technology. It is rare, digitaly intrinsic, it can be used as a store of vaule much like gold, it can be used as a day to day in currency transactions for goods and servies and puts banking back into the peoples hands, not the banks. This is how you get rid of our country's debt, this is how you ensure ports, airports and other U.S. infrastructures to be unhibited by the lack of financial restraint.  

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Answer from Daniel Mercuri:

I believe a federal run medicare for all would utterly destroy our economy. Eliminating private insurance would not do us any good. Instead I would propose: 1) Create a national 'optional' healthcare plan which could be known as 'Ameri-care.' Ameri-care would compete aggresively with private insurances. Ameri-care would be 40 to 50 percent more affordable then the current private insurance plans and this would also provide less expensive package plans for the verified temporarily unemployed low-income households. 2) Provide yearly data on unneccessary medical waste to be provided to an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) so medical communities can make quick and decisive quality improvements on the delivery of medical care. 3) Control prescription drug costs by capping the pharmaceutical companies on how much they can charge per medication and release their drug patents in a more reasonable amount of time in order that they can be more accessible to the public.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Answer from Daniel Mercuri:

1) Place a moratorium on immigration, irrelanvent from which nation you come from. This removes the arguement about being racially driven. 2) Ensure people who should be allowed in our country are those who have properly filed for citizenship, those who fall under the Dreamers ACT, people who are seeking asylum that can be verifiably and properly vetted NON-criminals, and child and sex traffic victims. 3) Continue to remove all criminals, irrelevant of the crime who are already in our jail facilities and deport them to their own country's prison. No American taxes should be paying for any illegal criminal. 4) Permit summary judgment authority to immigration judges to refuse cases that lack any merit for a hearing so they can expedite proceedings and lighten the burden of our overwhelmed immigration courts.
