Fiorina on Paul Ryan: ‘Leadership Is About Producing Results’

‘I think everything you heard Paul Ryan say is that he intends to lead the Republican caucus to providing solutions’

RADDATZ: "Now let’s bring in Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, she joins us from Iowa. Good morning, Mrs. Fiorina. I want to start of with Paul Ryan. He was a congressional staffer, elected to the House at age 28. Is he too much of a Washington insider to change so-called business as usual in Washington?"
FIORINA: "Well, we’ll see. But I think everything you heard Paul Ryan say is that he intends to lead the Republican caucus to providing solutions. And I think that’s what people want. You know, when I’m out here on the campaign trail, people want to see results. Leadership is about producing results. It’s not about talking, it’s about producing results. And so one of the things that I would encourage congress to do is pass the zero base budgeting bill that has been languishing in congress for too long, pass the REINS Act, which gives congress the authority, the accountability, to oversee every new regulation that has an impact of greater than $100 million, and pass a border security bill so that we can finally secure our border. Those are things that would be producing results. The American people would see it. And I think it would advance the ball tremendously."
