Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee composed an economic opportunity editorial in the Greenville News in South Carolina that details his plans to reform Washington and criticizes the status quo.

“For the first time in history, we have a president who celebrates government dependency and discourages hard work,” Gov. Huckabee said. “Ninety-three million Americans don’t have jobs and many have seen their full-time jobs with benefits become two, part-time jobs with no benefits. We’ve had 40 years of stagnant wages for the bottom 90 percent of American workers. Meanwhile, the cost of healthcare, education and housing keeps ballooning. One in four American families pays more than half their income on housing.”

The editorial outlines his reform proposals, including the elimination of the IRS. “As president, I’ll pass the FairTax and abolish the IRS to let every American worker keep his full paycheck. My plan will untax the poor and untax seniors living on a fixed income. It will also bring trillions of dollars in offshore investment and manufacturing back to the United States.”

He also expresses his support for America’s seniors,”I will protect Social Security and Medicare. I will never rob seniors of the benefits our government promised them and forced them to pay for. I’ll also repeal Obamacare and return the $700 billion Obamacare raided from Medicare.”
