4. Rolling Back Climate Change Regulations
If just about any Republican candidate wins the White House, you can rest assured knowing one of their first orders of business will be to roll back any climate change regulations implemented by President Obama. The majority of Republican candidates have expressed their displeasure in how the President has overreached his federal power when it comes to environmental policies. Climate change is a global issue, and even Jeb Bush has said that this is not a United States issue, and we are not in any position to have to address it alone. Although Bush has acknowledged that the climate is changing, he feels the science is not yet clear on the percentage created naturally and that which is man-made. For that reason alone, there can be no decisive steps taken because the science has not weighed in convincingly humans are to blame. Although Bush believes countries should cut back on carbon emissions, he claims that the United States is not one of those countries.
5. Defunding Planned Parenthood
Jeb Bush said in a town hall speech that Planned Parenthood should no longer receive any funding from the government because they are not addressing women’s health issues. He is by far the biggest pro-life supporter of all the Republican candidates, and he feels he is acting on his own core beliefs when he strips the Planned Parenthood organization of their federal funding. If elected President, Bush promises that the 13,000 community-based Planned Parenthood organizations around the country will all lose their federal funding. His stance is firm, and it might just turn-off those voters who feel that the rights of women should be left to women. Without many of these organizations, the Republicans are looking to spend the funding elsewhere that they feel will be more beneficial for the country.
These are the top five unrealistic promises from Republicans to American people during 2016 Presidential campaigns, and are sure to be deciding factors for many undecided voters as they cast votes for president in 2016.
