Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, told Fox News on Tuesday that if Democrats continue to push an anti-capitalism message they will likely lose the 2020 election.
“I think behind this ‘let’s tax the rich’ theme is an assumption that giving more money to government and politicians works,” Fiorina told America’s Newsroom. “It demonstrably doesn’t work. The government has been getting more money every year for 50 years. It’s one of the reasons people are so frustrated with politics. The problems seem to fester whether it’s immigration or healthcare or deficits.”
Fiorina says she wrote her new book “Find Your Way: Unleash Your Power and Highest Potential,” to help people who feel “helpless and powerless and frustrated by the fact that problems just fester all around them.”
