STRONG GOVERNMENT, NOT NO GOVERNMENT NOR BIG GOVERNMENT:
A GOP Leader Aims to Change Party's Message (COREY BOLES, 2/03/13, WSJ)
In a policy speech scheduled for Tuesday to the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute, Mr. Cantor plans to talk about a range of areas--from education to medical research to job training, as well as an overhaul of the tax code--in the context of how Republican ideas could benefit families across the nation, a top aide to the majority leader said.He plans to detail both existing and new GOP policies that he believes would serve as a strong framework that Republicans could use to make the case that their party's ideas are better than Democrats', the aide said.The overarching theme of the speech will be that, while Republican determination to pare back federal budget deficits and the size of the federal government shouldn't fade away, it should be supplemented with talk of how the party wants to make the government work better, the aide said.
