Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de 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.?
Respuesta de Helen L. Horvath:

The short answer is that federal debt reduction is critical to obtain smaller government.  Yet the state of the roads and infrastructure requires improvements.  Our debt is currently estimated to be $24,057Trillion in 2020. To reduce the debt and resolve infrastructure issues as a nation we must create unique and legal methods of creating advanced infrastructure repair without 

Funding infrastructure changes will be financially tricky as we continue to increase our national debt to fund repairs and infrastructure improvements. I would support public-private partnerships; investment instruments; and other innovative methods of obtaining financing beyond simply taxes.  

One of the most common method is the use of public bonds that are tied to a fixed income rate through the stock market based upon the bond rating of the selling government agency or firm.  These bonds would be a partnership relationship between federal, state and local agencies that are designed to fund and resolve infrastructure issues.  A secondary method of funding infrastructure would be through a mixed hybird finance method that would be tied to the infrastructure and utilities stock; as permitted under federal, state and local laws.  Infrastructure funding is directly tied, in many situations, to the stock market for publicly traded firms. Bonds and loans form the largest sector of federal infrastructure improvements.

The Organization for International Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD) 2019 reports on economic, social and envrionmental challenges of globalization and infrastructure provide key insight into the international aspect of improvements of infrastructure.  OECD is an internation consortium of nations that seek answers to common infrastructure and economic issues in various nations.

Through bonds and loans, we have federal contracts and the trick down of funding from the federal to states and down to local governments for direct or indirect payment of projects that are tied to the national debt.   

Other methods include mixed asset categories of hybrid loans composed of subordinate loans/bonds and equity listed and unlisted investment instruments that may become part of a larger investment portfolio.


Currently SDG&E, a publicly supervised utility firm and subsidiary of SempraEngery, manages the local electrical grid upto Southern Orange County.  SDGE has no major competitors in the management of the electric grid.    without major competition other than solar that if fed back into the grid.  SempraEnergy is a publicly traded corporation that leverages incomes and assets to improve services to the community.

It is important to note that the US Government is a member nation of the Organisation For Economic Co-operation and Development, OECD.  The OECD is an international advisory group that creates a setting where governments can compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, and work to coordinate domestic and international policies.  The OECD is involved in the development of cross border solutions to key infrastructure issues with our partner nations.


What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Helen L. Horvath:

I would support current healthcare laws and regulations while using my background in federal healthcare design and development (part of team that designed Tricare Northeast) to reduce overall healthcare premium costs that would include better services to our community.  Currently in our area, healthcare has been reported to be as high as $2500 per month.  A program modification would address the premiums while increasing services.  Do not support a Medicare for All program since Medicare current costs are $3.6Trillion/yr with only approximately $1.4Trillion in premiiums paid leaving an annual deficit.  Medicare also pays approximately 54% of California's MediCal payments that may have been diverted.  The State has given away $90M+ in Medi-Cal payments to undocumented illegals.  Our priority is first to those authorized to be in our country.  It is an unfortunate situation that parents violate international and our federal laws to attempt to live a dream that requires legal documentation to enter our nation.  I empathize; yet, we need to fix illegal immigration as stated below.  

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the House of Representatives.
Respuesta de Helen L. Horvath:

Congress should shift immigration policy from family reunification to employment-based migration while eliminating the per-country migration cap for future flows of legal immigrants.  Expansion of the H-1B High skilled visa program while revamping the existing H-2A and H2B temporary Visa workers programs.  Formulate a pathway to earned citizenship for undocumented aliens.  Tighten international relationships to stop the 'herd' migrations and illegal immigration into our nation by going after the criminal elements that are involved in the undocumented illegals crossing our border while enhancing the enforcement of immigration laws and policies.  This includes fully funding Homeland Security and related agencies involved in the enforcement of federal immigration laws.
