Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, a Republican presidential candidate, has pledged to undertake a significant overhaul of the federal government if elected to the White House. In an interview with Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” DeSantis stressed the urgency of reining in the bureaucracy and reversing the negative impacts of the Biden administration.
Describing the administrative state in Washington as “totally out of control,” DeSantis emphasized the need for a president who will take decisive action to clean house and restore constitutional boundaries. He stated, “We need a president to come in and really, really clean house, and I will do that on day one.”
DeSantis criticized the current administration’s policies, referring to Bidenomics as detrimental to the American people. He argued that the agenda leads to increased costs, a decline in the standard of living, reduced freedoms, and an expansion of government power over the economy to advance a liberal ideology.
Highlighting the potential for corruption, DeSantis noted that individuals often have to conform to certain political preferences in order to qualify for various programs. He claimed that this system empowers corporations aligned with the ruling class, further exacerbating the situation.
The governor also raised concerns about the unequal application of justice, stating that individuals connected to the Washington establishment receive preferential treatment compared to ordinary Americans. He criticized the capture of institutions by specific factions, resulting in the wielded power being used against those who hold differing views.
DeSantis underscored the importance of seizing the opportunity to challenge the entrenched power of the bureaucratic establishment, emphasizing that change must happen now. He expressed his determination to confront the accumulated power that has developed over several decades and to deliver the reforms necessary for a more accountable and efficient government.
