Goode is getting a lot of press in Virginia. This doesn’t sound too bad:
House Republicans are leaving it up to the House committees to decide what to cut and how changes in the tax law would help balance the budget, Goode said. He added that of the Republicans who have sought the party’s nomination for the November race, only Rep. Ron Paul of Texas “has the will to cut” spending.
Goode said he always was at odds with Ryan and the House budget committees. For instance, he wanted to slash foreign aid and funds to rebuild Iraq, but they did not. If illegal immigration stopped and the No Child Left Behind law was repealed, it would save billions, he added.
“I do not want green card admissions” of immigrants with only a few exceptions, such as if no one else can do a particular job, while Obama favors green card admissions, Goode said. He said that is because many of the immigrants are from Third World countries and when they eventually become citizens, often they are Democrats.
