TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has told Kansas business leaders that the nation needs a change of direction and called for a “patriot” energy policy, better education and an overhaul of the federal tax code.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Bush spoke Tuesday night at the Kansas Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner.
While he steered clear of presidential campaign politics, Bush was sharply critical of President Barack Obama’s polices on domestic energy production, education and environmental regulations.
“We need to celebrate every time someone starts a business in this country not regulate it to death,” Bush said.
