Should GOP be Party of Big Business? Jindal says No

Miranda Myers on July 06, 2015
"I don't think the Republican party should be the party of big government but I also don't think it should be the party of big business," Governor Bobby Jindal said at a "Walk and Talk" event in downtown Manchester.

Today in Manchester, NH, Governor Bobby Jindal participated in a Walk and Talk event with Mayor Ted Gatsas. At the event I took the opportunity to address the concern of corporate cronyism. I asked Jindal what his plans for stopping corporate cronyism were and he responded "I don't think the Republican Party should be the party of big government, but I also don't think it should be the party of big business." He also went on to share that he believes a "lower, flatter tax cut" would be the solution. 

"Do you believe that money is free speach or do you believe that we should eliminate the amount of money that is being dumped into presidential candidates?" another bird dog asked.   "I'm for free speech, and I don't think we should limit free speech," Gov. Jindal replied.   

The bird dog followed up, with a question about whether money is covered in the first amendment.    "I think people have the right to express their views," Jindal said.  He went on to talk about the importance of a "level playing field" when it comes to campaign finance.
