Senator Rand Paul spoke about the current government being allowed to make cuts to social security, but instead of saving the money they are utilizing it towards other spending. IE: Military equipment. The government is currently bankrupting the American people borrowing a million dollars a minute. There is a bill he has created to audit the Federal Reserve to hold them accountable for spending as the American public is held liable for theirs every April. Paul states that every working American pays over 100,000 dollars towards Medicare and Social Security and the recipient currently receives around $26,000. Where has the money gone? He does purpose a bill to fix Medicare by raising the age limit and means testing. This senator is like most in his party and believes that with smaller government the debt will dissipate.
Governor Chris Christie was a little more heated about the topic. He looked in the camera as he was speaking directly to his audience and told them the truth. The money is gone, stole by the same government that if they take the house will ask the Americans to give them more. Governor Christie asks that we start with moral and give the public the truth…finally. Getting really fired up with the moderators during a fantasy football question, he displayed how the real concerns of budgets, taxes, and monies stole are not being address in main line media. Christie does not want the people of our county to send more money to big government to fix the problems. He proposes ideas of increasing the retirement age as Americans are living longer. During some of the questions and answers his outrage illustrated his disgust with Washington wasting money and he wants to change the culture of our government if given the chance.
Governor John Kasich thinks that we need to fix the budget as well. Stating unlike his co-parts he is the only one to fix budgets in his state and it was not through false promises. He thinks we need fiscal discipline, addressing entitlements in a creative and imaginative way, as well as cutting taxes. Governor Kasich made a point to say that the government will spend today and hope the money is there tomorrow. He wants no more “silly deals” on the federal budget, as well as sending the money back to the state and away from big government for education.
Governor Mike Huckabee also addressed the topic of the government stealing from its own people. The money for Social Security is taken from every tax payer’s check. He hopes instead of blaming the recipients we start to blame to government. We need to keep the promise to our senior citizens about the money the government has now stolen. He discredits the means testing proposition other candidates have given for the pure fact that the money should be there. Governor Huckabee believes if we cure the four major illnesses that threatening Americans health we would be able to completely reform Medicare and the millions spent on treating Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease, Cancer, and Diabetes. I think he was the only candidate that became truly passionate while addressing America’s moral in government.
Senator Ted Cruz has similar ideas about how to balance budgets as his competitors. However he believes we should honor our commitment to the seniors currently and have the younger workers start to save for retirement in a different way. Put in what you will need. Democrats want more government which creates more taxes to be taken from middle class America. Senator Cruz backs Governor Paul’s audit the fed. The rich are not seeing increases, but the everyday struggling Americans do as they see their pay remaining the same. He wants to take Washington head on and make necessary changes in governmental structure for future generations.
Senator Marco Rubio is also noticing that small business and middle class America are struggling. He was over $100,000 in debt only 4 years ago. Also not falling victim to attacking other Republican debaters, he shed light on running for president to make conservative finical moves across government structures. With his current tax plan he will increase the child income credit for working families. Senator Rubio addresses the changes in Medicare to take place for future generations and not current. His mother is on Medicare and he wants to do nothing that will hurt his mother. The debt in American is causing the “American Dream” to slip away. With his tax and entitlement reform, he believes he can not only keep the American Dream but also expand it.
Mr. Donald Trump’s past financial discrepancies entered the debate since many bankruptcies entered under investments in Atlantic City NJ. However, he did counter as an excellent business man stating he used our countries chapter laws for profit for his family. Mr. Trump states how he will create a dynamic thriving economy by bringing back factory jobs from other countries. Now, at the third debate, Americans have listened to changes and are expecting details in plans. Mr. Trump did not offer that at this debate.
Doctor Ben Carson has a tax plan that will lead to smaller government which may help balance the budget. He does not believe in having government in every aspect of American’s lives. Doctor Carson states with fewer regulations and regulatory fees poor and middle class American can start to thrive and big corporations can cut costs to offer lower prices. He thinks that offering Americans a private sector option will be better than mandating Medicare taxes wanting Americans to use their intellect vs utilizing the government’s intellect. Dr. Carson knows that people are seeing more into the government and do not like what has been happening.
Carly Fiorina seems to think that by nixing out the IRS and tax preparers the American people can save money all around. She wants her tax reform down to 3 pages so it levels the playing field and everyone can understand. No more loopholes. She believes that big and powerful government only benefits big and powerful business and any outsiders are left in the wake. Ms. Fiorina, like her party, wishes for smaller government and with that fewer issues to fix. The large government, in her opinion creates problems then requests more tax payer’s money to fix that problem. She would want to start with zero base budgeting to know exactly where every dime is going across the board, and make her reforms accordingly.
Governor Jeb Bush thinks Washington is so corrupt that the culture needs to be completely reformed. The Obama administration seems to be increasing taxes without any budget cuts causing fiscal disaccord in Washington. Governor Bush believes with a change in government policies we can reform and gain growth not only financially, but with jobs and market as well. He also believes with a fix to Medicare and encouraging HSA accounts, SSI could potentially make sure everyone receives 125% above the poverty level. He closed with our country needing a unifier after the last 8 years under Obama Administration, and I could not agree more.
I agree with the ideas of fiscal changes the Republican Party has illustrated during this debate. I believe there is some great game changing proposals being offered. As a country we do need to offer a Medicare alternative for society. We also need to reform the government aid we offer. There are too many Americans receiving government benefits who should not. If you do not pay taxes in any way, shape, or form you should not receive any of the benefits I pay for. We do also need to look more at the Federal Reserve and know where the tax money is going. I mean Isis is currently riding around in million dollar American military equipment. I think allowing the Obama administration to continue to overspend is a ridiculous notion, and we need to start supporting the American economy before sending our money to other countries to aid them. I watched a Unicef commercial last night and wondered how much is spent here in the United States on hungry children who are not receiving proper nutrition and medical support. As a country we need to take a conservative approach to reserving funds for national security threats only as we build back up to being the greatest country again. For those who believe that America is the greatest country still, you need to look at the statistics across China and Europe. Donald Trump is right we are losing. We can all become proud Americans again with the proper leadership in government and assuming financial responsibility.
