Criticizes brother’s spending

Makes Statement0 Comments

Jeb Bush says that while he agrees with his brother George W. Bush on many things, he disagrees with his brother on other policies:

I want to share a little about my life, because apparently there’s a little confusion that all family members are supposed to be clones of one another

On budgeting and controlling spending, Jeb:

I think that, in Washington during my brother’s time, Republicans spent too much money. I think he could have used the veto power. He didn’t have line-item veto power, but he could have brought budget discipline to Washington, D.C.

On the Patriot Act:

There is not a shred of evidence that anybody’s civil liberties have been violated by it. t’s already been proven constitutional, and there is ample evidence that it has protected us
