Chris Christie in Fox Business 2015 GOP primary debate


On Budget & Economy: Hillary is coming for your wallet

Wait 'til you see what Hillary Clinton will do to this country and how she will drown us in debt. We spend 71 cents of every dollar in America on entitlements and debt service. Our plan will save over $1 trillion over the next 10 years and make sure that Social Security and Medicare are there for those who truly need it. But the bottom line is, believe me, Hillary Clinton's coming for your wallet, everybody. Don't worry about Huckabee or Jindal, worry about her.

On Budget & Economy: The Fed should stop maintaining low interest rates

This has been the most political Federal Reserve I've seen in my lifetime. When they cut interest rates during the recession, that was the right thing to do. But they've kept those interest rates artificially low because they're trying to politically support Barack Obama. The middle class is doing worse than it's ever done before. The wealthy are doing better because of this cheap money from the Fed. If we slide back towards a recession, you cannot lower interest rates below zero.

On Government Reform: There's nothing for free; federal programs mean taxes

There's nothing for free. What they forgot to tell was that they're going to raise your tax rates to 70 or 80 percent in order to provide all that stuff. Do you want to give Washington more control over your life? Hillary Clinton has made it very clear she believes she can make decisions for you. The greatness of America is the American people. What we need to do is get the government out of the way and let the American people win once again.

On Health Care: No single-payer system; no healthcare nationalization

We stopped ObamaCare in New Jersey because we refused to participate in the federal exchange. What do you think's going to happen when Hillary Clinton's elected president? What she will do is move us towards a single payer system. She will completely nationalize the federal health care system. That's what she wanted to do 20 years ago, and I guarantee you that's what she'll do if you give her the keys to the White House.

On Homeland Security: Yes, there is a crisis at the VA

The way to reconnect Americans to the men and women in uniform is to give them a Commander in Chief who respects the military and respects everyone who wears the uniform. Secretary Clinton says, there's no crisis at the V.A.. That send a hard message to our veterans that she doesn't get it, and she doesn't respect their service. When the President of the United States doesn't back up law enforcement officers in uniform, he loses the moral authority to any man or woman who is uniform.

On Tax Reform: Get rid of deductions except charitable & mortgage deduction

Q: What is the highest percentage, all in, in the way of taxes, that any American should have to pay and what is the lowest? I'd like to to hear from each of you.

CHRISTIE: Our plan puts forward a rate of 28% for those who are making the most and 8% on the low end. We get rid of all deductions except for the home mortgage interest deduction and the charitable contribution deduction. That means getting rid of the state and local income tax deduction because that will put more pressure on governors and on local officials not to keep raising those taxes, saying we can deduct them. So ours will be 28 on the high end, 8 on the low end.

Sen. SANTORUM: I have a 20% flat tax. That's on all income--so capital gains, corporations, individuals, 20%. I think that's a fair number. [With state taxes, that makes] probably 33% overall.

Gov. JINDAL: Under our tax plan, the top rate is 25%, [then for the middle class] 10%, [then everyone else pays] 2%.

On Tax Reform: Get rid of all deductions; get government off our backs

Make the tax code fairer, flatter, and simpler. People feel like the tax code is rigged for the rich, and you know why they feel that way? Because it is. We'll get rid of special interest deductions except for the home mortgage interest deduction and the charitable contribution deduction. Everyone will get lower rates, keep more of their own money, be able to file their tax returns in 15 minutes. We need to get the government off our backs.

On Technology: The Chinese don't take us seriously, and why should they?

Remember why we're in the position we're in with China, because an absolutely weak foreign policy that was engineered by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The Chinese don't take us seriously and why should they? They hacked into the American government's personnel file and took millions of records. I'm one of the victims of that hack. And what has this president done? Not one thing.

On War & Peace: I'll fly Air Force One over China's artificial islands

The Chinese don't take us seriously and why should they? What has this president done? Not one thing. Let me be really clear about what I would do. If the Chinese commit cyberwarfare against us, they are going to see cyberwarfare like they have never seen before. And that is a closed society in China, where they're hiding information from their own people, the information we take, we'll make sure all the Chinese people see it. Then they'll have some real fun in Beijing when we start showing them how they're spending their money in China.

And they're building those artificial islands in the South China Sea and the president, up until recently, wouldn't sail a ship within 12 miles or fly a plane over it. I'll tell you this, the first thing I'll do with the Chinese is I'll fly Air Force One over those islands. They'll know we mean business.
