Ahead of the next GOP Presidential debate, former SC Governor Nikki Haley has unveiled her economic plan to pursue if she is elected President, even though she is currently a long-shot candidate trailing in the polls.
Haley’s plan includes:
Raising the Social Security retirement age for those currently under 40 years old
Vetoing any budget that doesn’t ‘contribute to reducing the US economy to pre-Covid spending levels’
Eliminating $500 billion in green energy subsidies
Mandatory “zero-based budgeting”
Infrastructure projects funded by general revenues
“Clawing back” $500 billion of unspent Covid-19 funds.
Eliminating the federal gas tax, reducing the income tax, and making small-business tax relief permanent
Most campaign experts give Haley a long-shot of winning the GOP Primary. Her original 2010 run for Governor was a long-shot until she was greatly helped with endorsements by Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin. Now, though, Nikki Haley is slightly more unfavorable among the general public than favorable. Haley has anemic support among GOP Primary voters, averaging around 5% in Presidential primary polling.
Haley started her political career as a State Representative in the South Carolina legislature in 2004, serving until elected Governor of South Carolina in 2010. She was re-elected as Governor in 2014, and then resigned to become Trump’s Ambassador to the United Nations from 2017-2018, resigning in December 2018.
