Bush, Walker, Rubio, Santorum on campaign trail

Aug 24, 2015 Republican presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, and Rick Santorum made the rounds on the campaign trail with topics ranging from Islamic State, corporate taxation, government reform, and U.S.-Mexico border patrol.

In his speech at a town hall meeting in Keene, Jeb Bush, the son and brother of former presidents, told supporters that critics of the recently negotiated Iran nuclear deal aren’t ‘warmongers’.

Under the nuclear deal, previous sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations on Iran will be lifted and in return, Iran will agree to a long-term process to curb its nuclear program which is suspected to be aimed at creating a nuclear bomb.

“I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of the president of the United States saying that anybody that doesn’t embrace his sophisticated, nuanced foreign policy. Anybody that says that the Iran deal is, ya know, that thinks it’s a bad deal, is a warmonger,” Bush said.

Also in New Hampshire was Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker. The Wisconsin State Governor met with supporters at a hunting shop in Ashland and pointed to them his significant track record of successful reforms.

“We fought. We won. We got results. And we ultimately did it without compromising our common-sense conservative principles. If that’s what you want in the next president — a lot of great choices, but I don’t think anybody else can match that record. But going forward for us, a few simple things: It’s all about reform, growth, and safety,” Walker said.

Still on the campaign trial, Marco Rubio has channeled focused on economic reforms and corporate tax cuts, during his speech at the Detroit Economic Club in Michigan.

“As President, I would begin by fundamentally overhauling our tax code. Overhauling it to make it pro-growth and pro-family, because currently it is neither. America will never be the global leader in business in this century, if we continue to have the highest corporate tax rate in the developed world. Michigan alone will lose 11.7 billion dollars in GDP — in its gross domestic product — over the long-term if nothing changes. My tax plan will begin by cutting the corporate rate to be competitive, with the average of 25% for developed nations,”
