Ms. Fiorina may be among the longest of long shots to win the GOP nomination, but at Monday’s event hosted by the Committee to Unleash American Prosperity she demonstrated an impressive depth across a range of policy issues. The former tech executive chose to focus on the crushing burden imposed on small business by the modern regulatory state.
Her compelling tour of the landscape included unemployed farm workers left nearly hopeless after endangered species rules cut the flow of water to California’s Central Valley.
She explained how the Federal Communications Commission’s new Internet regulations violate the FCC’s own rules and would succeed only in “crushing the little guys” trying to compete online.
And she noted that even before ObamaCare, health insurance markets suffered from stifling regulation at both the state and federal levels. “Let’s try the one thing we’ve never tried in health care—a free market,” said Ms. Fiorina. She then compared bureaucratized health systems to the vibrancy of the tech sector that constantly delivers more powerful products at lower prices.
