Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has a solution to the problems in Washington - “fire everybody.”

Speaking in the undercard GOP debate Tuesday in Milwaukee, Mr. Jindal passed on the chance to answer a moderator’s question about which Democrat they admire most on Capitol Hill, calling it a “silly” question and a waste of time.

“Let me use my time to say this: I want to fire everybody in DC in both parties,” Mr. Jindal said. “We need term limits, get rid of them all, and make them live under the same laws they pass for the rest of us.”

Mr. Jindal espoused a tough tone in the four-person event, ripping both parties for allowing the federal government to get bigger and bigger.

He cast himself as the truest conservative in the GOP field and repeatedly warned against “sending another big government Republican” to Washington, saying they would abandon conservative principles.

“If we send another big government Republican to The White House we will not do enough to fix what is wrong with this country,” he said.

Mr. Jindal said he has done more to cut the size and scope of government in his state than Mr. Christie and Mr. Huckabee.

“Records matter,” he said.
