THE CONSERVATIVE IN THE RACE:

Fact Check: Which Republican candidates actually cut spending? (John Stossel, Maxim Lott,  August 28, 2015, FoxNews.com)


This chart...shows that Bush was indeed the biggest budget cutter. During his tenure, Florida's spending shrunk by 3.6 percentage points more than the average. He cut spending by 1.39 percent per year in his state, while other states increased theirs by 2.3 percent during that same period. Kasich was also conservative by this measure, cutting spending 1.76 percentage points more than other states did.
