2nd District GOP candidates spar at FPU debate
Retired Marine Lambert of Nashua said as a small business owner, he believes the tax code should be simpler and fairer for businesses.
Garcia took that opportunity to say Lambert had sent out campaign fliers bashing her position on closing corporate loopholes.
Garcia said closing loopholes would help small- and medium-sized businesses, because only large corporations have the resources to fully take advantage of the current tax code.
Garcia countered saying she supports closing the loopholes and reducing tax rates.
Lawrence got applause from the audience when he said this is exactly why he was running, the bickering between the other candidates over campaign ads and contributions.
All candidates agreed the border should be secured.
Lambert attacked Garcia, though, on immigration saying that she advocated amnesty.
And for several reasons, illegal immigrants need to be pulled from the shadows, she said.
“If they are participating in the economy, they should be paying taxes,” Garcia said.
When asked about the Northern Pass, both Lambert and Lawrence said they oppose it.
Garcia said she would support it, if the wires could be buried.
“We’ve got troops on food stamps. There’s the budget, there’s the priority, getting the troops off food stamps,” Lambert said.
