John Kasich in Fox Business 2016 GOP primary debate


On Budget & Economy: We're nowhere close to a balanced budget; needs 3 things...

It takes three things basically to grow jobs. And I've done it when I was in Washington when we paid down a half-trillion of debt and our economy was growing like crazy. It's the same thing that I did in Ohio. It's a simple formula:
  1. Common sense regulations: we should freeze all federal regulations for one year, except for health and safety.
  2. Tax cuts, because that sends a message to the job creators that things are headed the right way. And if you tax cuts--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.
  3. But in addition to that, we have to have fiscal discipline. We have to show that we can march to a balanced budget.
And when you do that, when you're in a position of managing regulations; when you reduce taxes; and when you have fiscal discipline, you see the job creators begin to get very comfortable with the fact that they can invest.

On Government Reform: 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.
