Ron DeSantis Unveils Plan For ‘Huge’ Reconciliation Package If President

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis revealed his plan Monday for a “huge” reconciliation package if he becomes president in 2024 to advance some of his key policy platforms.

DeSantis pledged to tackle the border crisis, repeal President Joe Biden’s Green New Deal and bolster the economy in a reconciliation package, which is budget and spending legislation Congress can expedite, overriding filibuster rules, he told New Hampshire radio host Hugh Hewitt Monday. This marks the first time DeSantis has addressed reconciliation since his presidential announcement in late May, which he said he and his team will continue to brainstorm on.

“We are going to have a huge package for reconciliation that is going to cover a lot of different things,” said DeSantis. “Obviously we are going to shut down the border. We are going to do the border security. That is just point one. We have got to get that done. Two, we are going to repeal Biden’s disastrous economic policies, his Green New Deal. And we are going to have things that are going to help jumpstart this economy, things like full expensing so that we have more ability to produce manufacturing.”

DeSantis has been particularly outspoken on immigration, and has taken action as governor in response to the expiration of the Trump-era Title 42 on May 11. The governor deployed troops to the southern border, shipped illegal migrants to the sanctuary state of California and visited the southern border last week.

The governor criticized the Biden administration’s energy policy for contributing to inflation, he said during a press conference in February. After his presidential announcement on May 24, DeSantis told Fox News’ Trey Gowdy reversing them is one of his top three presidential priorities, and argued innovation and gaining energy independence should be the focus of the U.S.’ energy policy.

“I have always rejected the politicization of the weather and I think what we should be doing in the United States is focusing on being energy-independent and making sure that we are utilizing the resources,” DeSantis said. “When you have market-based solutions and when you innovate, in Florida we have seen emissions go down dramatically in the last 10 years, but that is through market and innovation.”

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), Biden’s signature climate law and reconciliation package, includes tax credits for the production of batteries used in electric vehicles and other energy-efficient appliances, and seeks to limit fossil fuel emissions.

“It is going to be more than just one because Biden expanded reconciliation,” said DeSantis. “They dumped a lot of stuff.”

  1. We desperately need De Santis for President in 2024. He recently did another interview with where he described how he would dismantle the “Deep State” by appointing highly aggressive and competent D.C. outsiders. For example, the Attorney General is the single most important person a President can select to help dismantle the bureaucratic Deep State as they are in charge of both the Department of Justice AND the FBI. Trump accomplished a great deal, but in this critical appointment, he struck out twice, first with the feckless Jeff Sessions and then with Bill Barr. Sessions was an entrenched Republican politician and Barr a forever D.C. lawyer that was Bush’s Attorney General; both the types of people De Santis vows to eschew. More importantly Se Santis is all action and results and his accomplishments are numerous and impressive. He has fearlessly fought education indoctrination in Florida (from elementary school to college), took on the “woke” international behemoth Disney (and won), passed a six week abortion ban, permitless concealed carry, made chemical castration and physical mutilation of minors illegal, and brilliantly highlighted the Democrats immigration hypocrisy by shipping 50 illegals to the super rich “all white” enclave of Martha’s Vineyard where they were summarily ejected in less than 48 hours. Most importantly, he turned a highly diverse “purple” state into a solid Red State by 20 points by winning over independents and even some “old school” Democrats that Trump will never get.
