Kasich on His Conservative Credentials: What Is There Not to Like?


By    |   Sunday, 01 Nov 2015 04:25 PM

Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he's as conservative as anyone else running for the GOP presidential nomination, but says, "I care about poor people."

In an appearance Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Kasich listed his conservative resume.

"I balance budgets. I was the chief architect in Washington. We created jobs, families were better. I came to Ohio; we were $8 billion in the hole. Now we're $2 billion in the black. We have lots of school choice. I've cut taxes by more than any sitting governor in America," he said. "Wages are growing faster than national average. Our credit is strong. What is there not to like?"

He said some people don't like his tone because he calls out front-runners Donald Trump and Ben Carson over Trump's plan to deport more than 10 million illegal immigrants and build a border wall or Carson's plan to reform Medicare and Medicaid.

Kasich also has refrained from joining his fellow candidates in criticizing the moderators after last week's contentious CNBC debate. He did admit, however, that it's tough to get a message across to voters in the limited time allotted.

"I know that Harry Truman couldn't get elected president with explaining the United States of America's healthcare plan in 30 seconds," he said.
