GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says her lack of a concrete policy proposal is not an impediment to her presidential campaign.


“How often do politicians put out detailed plans? How often do they get enacted? Never,” Fiorina said in an interview broadcast on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

“Anybody can write a plan, anybody can put a plan on a website. It’s another thing to say, ‘You know what I think we need to do?’ and say it over and over again in public,” she added.

The former business executive said she can be held accountable based solely on what she tells voters on the campaign trail.

“So, in other words, words on a piece of paper are more accountable than words said to people looking them in the eye? I don’t think so,” Fiorina said.

“I think voters have gotten smart enough to know that plans and papers, 50-point plans, 10-point plans, 5-point plans, are written by a bunch of advisers and consultants,” Fiorina said.

The Republican presidential hopeful encouraged people to go to her website if they have questions about where she stands on the issues.
