Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

And on Sunday at 4 PM ET, tune in to Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” program, where I’ll offer the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up.

Sen. John McCain’s campaign adviser and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, will be on Fox News Sunday. As a former business executive, some economic policy questions are in order.

1. You said that McCain’s health care plan “puts the choice in the hands of the individual and the family.” But the plan has been described as “radical,” because it would effectively end employer-sponsored health benefits, push greater costs onto working families, while providing a tax credit which doesn’t even cover half the cost of the average $12,000 insurance plan.

How is making health insurance less affordable creating good choices for working families?

2. You have previously said that the off-shoring of American jobs should be called “right-shoring,” and that “there is no job that is America’s God-given right anymore.”

As Sen. McCain is a staunch defender of our current trade and global economic strategy that has contributed to the loss of 3.4 million manufacturing jobs, and is putting 40 million service jobs at risk of offshoring, does he share your comfort level with the continued loss of American jobs?

3. You publicly explained how, as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, you “parked cash” overseas to avoid paying taxes at home. Can you explain why McCain has not expressed support for reform that would ban this tax avoidance practice?
