You have heard about and probably seen the movie “The Magnificent Seven” where once again the good guys prevail. Now, we may have a new version in the making – “The Significant Twelve.” These 12 individuals have a major task ahead of them as they are charged with developing a plan to solve our nations problems. I thought it might be beneficial if you, the voters, gave them a hand by casting your vote. No names required, just pick your answer. You’ll find these questions and answers in a poll at www.cadizrecord.com on Wednesday, and the results will be published in the Sept. 28 issue. Please participate as want to hear your thoughts.



Should they recommend a balanced budget amendment ?



Should we revise the personal tax code to a flat tax of 10 percent (for everyone) with zero deductions, or a flat tax of 12 percent and allow mortgage interest deductions for one home only?



Should they revise the corporate tax rate to 20 percent and allow zero deductions, or to 25 percent and allow companies to deduct research and development costs?



Should they recommend to leave Medicare exactly as it operates today, or should they revise the structure of this program so that any cost changes ONLY effect those future recipients who are 54 years old and younger as of 12/31/2011?

Develop a comprehensive energy plan that would stimulate the economy and make us less dependant on foreign oil ?



Recommend term limits?
