National Review: Jeb Would Limit the Federal Government to Its Proper Constitutional Role

National Review: Jeb Would Limit the Federal Government to Its Proper Constitutional Role

'What we need is a candidate committed to a structural reset of Washington that puts the federal government in its place and restores the proper balance of power between it and the states. That candidate, in my view, is Governor Jeb Bush. We need a president willing to embrace the idea that Washington is not the answer to all, or even most, of our problems. Jeb’s tenure as governor of Florida gives him a unique appreciation of the power of keeping government local and close to the people. Nothing is more indicative of this than a letter he sent to President George W. Bush just two years into his first term as governor. It’s a heartfelt and personal plea from brother to brother, asking President Bush to not let the fog of Washington obscure his view of the proper role of the states.'

    There is nothing in Jeb Bush's background that differentiates him from his father or brother politically. Both of them markedly increased the power of the Federal government at the expense of the States. I fully expect Jeb to do it too.
