Wilson on spending, healthcare, regulation and national security

-A A +A
By Harold Morgon

This is the second of two columns sharing my mid-October conversation in Albuquerque with Heather Wilson, former congresswoman and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate.
Morgan: What are your observations about the financial challenges facing the country?
Wilson: (President Obama has) chosen to make this a political issue rather than trying to figure out what’s right to do for the country and start working to figure out how we’re going to bridge these gaps and get back on the right path to something that’s fiscally sustainable.
I just found that tremendously disappointing. So it does require the political will to say we will do what is best for the country.
I think there are two parts to this: One is major reforms, like (Sen. Daniel Patrick) Moynihan and President Reagan did.
The other one is the day-to-day hard work of oversight, to try to find things that aren’t working in the federal government and stop doing them. I’ve done that, both in the federal government and in state government.
Everyone talks about waste in government, but it’s actually very hard work to identify the things that are not working and stop them.
Morgan: You have called for the repeal of Obamacare. All of it?
