Ask Fred

Folksy Fred Thompson answers some voter questions while rolling through Central Florida:

Sound Bite: "We shouldn't be adding on programs that make the solution even that much more difficult."

And Fred's no fan of the current tax system.

Sound Bite: "There are several good plans out there that move us in the right direction. And I think that we need to take 'em, put 'em on the table and see what we can do, with the underlying goal of doing away with the current tax code that's an abominable mess."
