Carly Fiorina on Government Reform

 


Abolish earmarks; limit federal salaries

Carly believes strongly in the power of transparency and accountability in improving quality and reducing costs. Carly believes the federal government must start with obvious reforms: abolishing earmarks, forcing honest accounting, taking the power to cook the books away from politicians, and limiting federal salaries & benefits. Carly also supports posting every bill and every budget on the Internet far enough in advance so that people can comment on the policies and take an active role in government

American dream is perishable, if government keeps growing

I believe our state and our nation are at a pivotal moment. We have arrived at what Ronald Reagan once called a time for choosing. I've lived the American dream. But our American dream is perishable. I believe bigger and bigger government higher and higher taxes and thicker and thicker regulation are killing the American dream. I see it happening all over the state and if Barbara Boxer remains in office for another 6 years it will only get worse. I'm the only candidate in this race who has met a payroll or created jobs. And I will fight for every job. I am the only candidate in this race who has ever actually balanced a budget and cut spending in the real world and I will fight to cut government spending. I believe we must stop sending more of our money to Washington because they have amply demonstrated that they do not spend our money wisely or well. If we want to change Washington we have to change the people we send to Washington.
