NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFDTV) During RFD-TV's RURAL TOWN  HALL, American voters are allowed a chance to voice questions to 2016 presidential candidates such as Carly Fiorina. Deb Schuler, President of Iowa Women In Agriculture asks a question about transportation challenges. 

“My question today has to deal with infrastructure. At times harvested grain cannot access the desirable markets due to infrastructure and transportation challenges. What are your thoughts to improve our country's infrastructure?” asks Schuler. 

“Have you ever noticed how the Federal Government spends more money every single year, and never has enough money to do the important things? Roads and bridges, infrastructure, is a Federal Government responsibility, actually.” says Fiorina. “We must invest in our roads and bridges and infrastructure, and we must spend less money in the Federal Government overall, therefore, we have to go to zero-based budgeting, and we have to say, ‘You know what? This is money not being spent well, and we shouldn't be spending it all….’”

Watch Fiorina's complete answer in the video above  and see how she addresses other issues important to rural Americans on RURAL TOWN HALL
