Social Security 2035 bankruptcy:

What should Congress do to help combat and contain the coronavirus?

* Stay-at-home is great for rich people with a guaranteed paycheck, but working people and small business have been destroyed.

* As a conservative Democrat, bailout pork — $25 million for the Kennedy Center and $75 million for performing arts — is an insult to hard-working taxpayers. Common sense should prevail.

* Sweden kept business and schools open with social distancing recommendations.

* Loss of liberty is destroying the American economy.

* 98% of people with COVID-19 recover.

What Nebraska projects, if any, would you propose?

Farm bankruptcy solution:

* Increase ethanol to 50%. Increase corn demand. Save family farms.

* Ethanol byproduct more nutritious and cheaper livestock feed.

* 50% ethanol decreases foreign oil and increases American energy independence.

* 50% ethanol decreases dependence and import manipulation by China.

Do you believe in climate change; if so, what should Congress do to combat or contain it?

* 50% ethanol immediately decreases global warming and can be done in 120 days in Nebraska.

* Wind technology investment will result in self-sustaining profitability. Nebraska is one of the windiest states and usage could decrease Nebraska taxes as much as oil has for other states.

* Cybersecurity technology needs military investment to prevent foreign interference in military and economic chaos.

* Neither Republicans or Democrats have solved health care.

* Impeachment was a waste of taxpayer money. Excuse for both Democrats and Republicans to not get anything done.

Should the Senate filibuster rule be amended? Why or why not?

Filibuster is time-wasting blubber.

* Each bill should be one standalone law.

* All debate should center around one issue.

* Add-on pork amendments should be banned by law and are a waste of taxpayer money.
