Jon Huntsman on Government Reform
Republican UT Governor
HUNTSMAN: I would clean up the balance sheet. We certainly have failed leadership. President Obama had two years to get this economy going and to move us toward an environment that speaks to job growth, and he's failed miserably. But along with that, we have a real trust crisis in this country. Between the American people and our institutions of power, Congress, the executive branch, Wall Street as well, there is no trust. We are running on empty. And when a democracy begins to run on empty because of government holdings and bailouts and being involved in ways that are absolutely inappropriate, based on constitutional and where we should be, that results in a diminution of trust by the American people. We've got to raise that trust.
"We have wide open campaign-finance laws. There is unlimited giving and no immediate (financial) disclosure. And I think that can lead to political mischief, that level of influence unregulated in the system," Huntsman said, just before departing to China. Without more information, we can only presume that Governor Huntsman will be no ally to the pro-free speech cause.
