Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who is expected to announce a campaign for president, said over the weekend that she could improve the economy by cutting federal worker pay because they were “watching porn all day long.”
In a Sunday interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, Fiorina said that there was a “higher than 90 percent” chance that she would become a Republican presidential candidate.
The former HP CEO explained that she would make a formidable candidate “because I understand technology: a transformational tool, because I understand bureaucracies, how they work and how you need to change them. And our government is a huge bureaucracy.”
According to Fiorina, the United States was “destroying more businesses than we are creating” for the first time in U.S. history under President Barack Obama’s administration.
“Washington, D.C. has become a vast and unaccountable bureaucracy. It’s been growing for 40 years,” she opined. “We have no idea how our money is spent.”
Fiorina said that she had two prong plan for boosting the economy by reforming the federal government.
“One, zero-based budgeting so we actually know where money is being spent, and we’re talking about the whole budget and not just the rate of increase,” she remarked. “And two, pay for performance in our civil service.”
“We have — how many Inspector General reports do we need to read that say, you know, you can watch porn all day long and get paid exactly the same way as somebody who’s trying to do their job?”
