Jeb responds to question about Pentagon contractors

Muriel on September 04, 2015
Jeb Bush called for more transparency to dilute the influence of Pentagon contractors, then called for stronger military forces abroad. But he did talk about abuses associated with money and lobbyists.

Muriel went to her first candidate event and was the second person recognized to ask Jeb Bush a question.

"When Pentagon contractors spend millions of dollars on lobbying and elections, all to get more contracts, how can we return power to the people to set military and foreign policy?" she asked.

His answer was "transparency,"  then he went on about the need to strengthen our military forces abroad. "He did talk about the abuse of lobbying and the money flooding into it during his speech," Muriel reported.

She added, "I enjoyed the experience."
