Gary Johnson on Corporations

Former Republican NM Governor


Started a one-man handyman business; grew it to 1,000 people

Q: You are an outspoken libertarian. What makes you a better choice for libertarian Republicans than Congressman Paul?

A: I bring a unique perspective to this stage. I started a one-man handyman business in Albuquerque in 1974 and grew it to over 1,000 employees. I have run for two political offices in my life: governor of New Mexico and reelection. I promise to submit a balanced budget to congress in the year 2013. I promise to veto legislation where expenditures exceed revenue.

Lower the tax burden; eliminate corporate tax

Americans are more concerned than ever before about the future of our economy, and those concerns are well-founded. As a nation, we simply can't afford to continue borrowing 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. The US must adopt 3 approaches:
  1. Cut Spending: We must restrain spending across the board.
  2. Cut Taxes: The US tax system imposes an enormous toll on productivity through high marginal rates, absurd complexity, loopholes for the well-connected, and incentives for wasteful decisions. The government must lower the tax burden to stimulate the economy.
  3. Reduce Federal Involvement in the Economy.
