Republicans need to take advantage of their majority in the U.S. Congress to pass bills rather than simply opposing Democratic President Barack Obama’s priorities, potential presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Monday.
Republicans last month trounced Democrats to win control of the Senate and extend their majority in the House, as exit polls showed Americans were fed up with partisan gridlock in Washington.
“Republicans need to show they’re not just against things, that they’re for a bunch of things,” said Bush, 61, a former two-term governor of Florida who is considering entering the Republican presidential nomination race for 2016.
Bush said he would decide in “short order” whether he would run for president in 2016, adding he was still weighing whether the sacrifice his family would have to make would be worth it.
“It’s the same decision-making process that I’ve always had, which is … do I have the skills to do it in a way that tries to lift people’s spirits, and not get sucked into the vortex,” he said.
