Presidential candidate Nikki Haley joined Face the Nation this morning to discuss Joe Biden’s embrace of “socialism light,” Washington’s bipartisan spending addiction, term limits for politicians, and what Americans are looking for in 2024.

On term limits for Congress… 

“They need to let a younger generation take over. We want to go and start working for our kids to make sure we have a strong national security, to make sure we have a stronger economic policy, to make sure that America is safe. And we can’t do that if these individuals refuse to give up power. This is not just a Republican or Democrat problem. This is a congressional problem. They’ve got to know when to leave. It is time to pass this down to a new generation of conservative leaders that want to take our country to a better place.”

On Washington’s spending addiction… 

“Biden has pushed us into socialism lite. He’s spending on every single thing. They’ve forgotten the role of government. Government was intended to secure the rights and freedoms of the people… I have said that Biden has spent already $5 trillion in his term, but Republicans have spent, too. We’ve watched them open up earmarks for the first time in 10 years. We’ve watched the 2024 appropriations bill has $7.4 billion in earmarks. Democrats have $2.8 billion in earmarks. All of them are spending like drunken sailors. It’s our tax dollars that they’re spending. What we’re saying is, I had to balance the budget when I was governor of South Carolina. Americans have to balance their budget at home. Why is Congress the only group that refuses to balance a budget?… They need to make sure that they are giving money back to the taxpayers. They need to make sure that money is not being wasted.”

On what Republicans want… 

“I believe Republicans want to bring crime down and go back to law and order. I believe Republicans want transparency in schools. I believe Republicans want to secure the border. And I believe Republicans want to prevent war and have a strong national security. That’s what we’re talking about. It’s not about a person. It’s about a country.”
