Fox Business 2016 GOP primary debate: on Government Reform


John Kasich: Freeze all federal regulations for one year

Q: This stock trading year is the worst start to a new year ever. Many worry that banks and financial stocks are particularly vulnerable. What actions would you take if the Great Recession meltdown happened all over again?

KASICH: [I would do] the same thing that I did in Ohio. It's a simple formula: common sense regulations, which is why I think we should freeze all federal regulations for one year, except for health and safety. It requires tax cuts, because that sends a message to the job creators that things are headed the right way. And if you cut taxes for corporations, and you cut taxes for individuals, you're going to make things move, particularly the corporate tax, which is the highest, of course, in the world.

Mike Huckabee: Government takes too much money from hard-working Americans

I wish I saw the country in the same place that the president presented it to be in the State of the Union. I wish I could introduce him to the lady who cleans the building of our campaign headquarters. She's not working 15 hours a day because she loves scrubbing toilets. There are people all over this country who are working like that. Because of the fact that they're punished for working harder if they work that many hours. The government gets more of their second shift than they do.
