Americans Helping Americans Abroad

Question 1: Taxation

Would you commit to working with Americans residing abroad to reform the current citizenship-based US tax system?

I believe reform is needed to the entire tax code, and would commit to working with Americans residing abroad to reform the current citizenship-based US tax system.

Question 2: Services

Will you support on-line access to government agencies and adequate funding for consular functions upon which Americans abroad rely?

Yes, having lived abroad for 13 years, I would support online access to government agencies and adequate funding for consular functions upon which Americans abroad rely, many of which I have used in the past.

Question 3: Banking

Would you support an enforceable right for all US citizens to a US bank account so they can retain their US savings and retirement accounts and make and receive payments in the United States?

Many times laws enacted with good intentions have negative impacts. I would support an enforceable right for US citizens to a US bank account so they can retain their US savings and retirement accounts and make and receive payments in the United States.

Message from the Candidate:

I have lived in South Korea for two years, and Germany for eleven years. I worked for the Department of Defense Schools on the military bases at Busan (Pusan), South Korea, and at Bitburg, Germany. I am friends with many Americans living abroad both working and retired, so I am familiar with the unique needs and issues facing American abroad. Please visit our web site at https://danacottrellforcongress.com/ and I hope to have your vote on Nov 6th. Thank you.
