After being asked about the immigration problem, Carrico says “we have got to build that wall around us,” seemingly suggesting that we need to build a wall around the entire country. I have heard proposals of building a wall across the southern border, but Carrico is the first candidate I have ever heard suggest that we need a wall between us and Canada and on our coastlines.
Carrico was also asked about the budget and he quickly proclaims that he thinks the budget should be balanced. On the follow-up, though, when asked if he would support revoking the recent tax cuts on just people making more than $500,000 per year if it would balance the budget, he declines to answer. Could that mean that Carrico has a few friends (i.e., campaign donors) who make more than half-a-million per year?
