Greg Brannon on Government Reform

 

 


I believe in a constitutionally limited government

Brannon said, "This campaign I'm mocked because I talk about the Constitution. If you came to me and I have the honor of being your surgeon and I didn't talk anatomy and physiology, would you trust me? With a pilot flying a plane or an engineer building a building, you always have an authoritative structure of documents to go by. But not government?"

Brannon questioned whether Burr uses the constitution as a strict guide, and questioned whether Burr is truly a conservative. "Is it conservative to fund an unconstitutional executive order to have amnesty?" Brannon asked. "That's Obama's plan. [Burr has] not done the job of hindering President Obama. He's actually aided him in fundamentally transforming America."

When asked if he agreed with Burr on any policy matters, Brannon would only say that Burr believes in a "bigger government than I do." Brannon said he believes in a constitutionally limited government. "What has he done to shrink government?" he said. "Can you name one?"

Free-market alternatives to federal programs that don't work

Despite talking points, promises, and pledges to the contrary, big government Republicans have significantly contributed to increased federal spending, doubling the national debt during the Bush administration. Now our national debt is over $18.7 trillion.

We have to do more than just talk about reducing spending and eliminating the deficit. We cannot continue to fund federal programs we can't afford, dumping ever more debt and interest onto the shoulders of our children and grandchildren to pay back into perpetuity.

As your Senator, I will be committed to eliminating federal programs that no longer work, finding free-market alternatives to healthcare and other liabilities, curbing runaway spending, finally balancing the budget, and dramatically lowering taxes.
