My Top 3 Priorities

  • San Onofre: Fully fund temporary, off-site storage. Fully fund Yucca Mountain as a permanent solution.
  • Healthcare: Get back to the table and push comprehensive health care reform through a bi-partisan legislative process.
  • Immigration: Secure our southern border. Fight for a bi-partisan, comprehensive immigration policy.

Questions & Answers

Questions from KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Answer from Brian Maryott:

I support fully comprehensive immigration reform that factors skill set, family and past contributions, into a qualifying formula for work permits and future citizenship. 


Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Answer from Brian Maryott:

I support the President and his efforts to fully secure our southern border. It's a matter of national security. 

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Answer from Brian Maryott:

I'm a staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment. Regulation should be addressed at the state level. 

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Answer from Brian Maryott:

I believe in fair trade between us our neighbors to the north and south.

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Answer from Brian Maryott:

No, I do not support raising the federal gas tax. Our citizens are already over-taxed and it is a regressive tax, most affecting the poorest families.

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

Healthcare is our single most pressing domestic issue and will be my top domestic priority.  We have walked away from the table, and we are in danger of defaulting to our  current system as our permanent healthcare system. On a scale of 1-10, it is no better than a 5.  We need to have a robust and highly competitive market driven system delivering coverage and cost options for Americans and employers.  Alongside that a core, single payer system for those requiring some type of subsidy or government oversight.  Done right, no American should lack access to healthcare. And those who were pleased with their pre-ACA care (and the vast majority of us were), will once again have reasonable pricing and multiple providers.  My top international priority will be to support foreign policy and military initiatives that maintain our status as the world’s sole superpower.
