Stan Jones on Budget & Economy

 


Eliminate numerous unconstitutional federal departments

Q: How would you reduce the federal deficit?

JONES: That's easy for me. Eliminate the unconstitutional department of education. Eliminate the unconstitutional department of energy. Eliminate Housing and Urban Development, and Health & Welfare, and all the unconstitutional agencies and programs in the federal government. Then eliminate the ability for the federal government to pass laws that bribe state governments to pass things that the federal government cannot pass constitutionally. That makes the state government grow. I don't understand how people can take an oath of office knowing that they are outside the law of the constitution. They are outlaws!

BURNS: There's only one way to control the deficit--grow the economy and control spending.

TESTER: It's time that we spend the money wiser, that we prioritize better, and start looking out for middle class folks. But that's not the people who have control--the cronies on K-Street that buy votes have more control than the folks that elect us.
