"What I believe is that this country has always tried from the very beginning to become a more perfect union, and certainly we’ve had our challenges throughout this nation’s history, and there is no hiding from that" he explained. "But when you hear comments like you heard from President Biden and others that throw fuel on the fire, that explode the tensions that we have in this country, that’s not good for hoping to unify this country."
“In my part” Cameron went on, “I try to stay away from hyperbolic terms, I try to make sure that I reflect love, and christ in my comments”
“Im am going to continue to do that, I'm going to continue to reach out to folks that have different views from me,” the Kentucky AG said.
“Of course,” he stressed again, “we have challenges in this country, but the promise of a more perfect union is always one step away, and always one step closer”
Cameron, Kentucky’s first Black attorney general in history and first Republican in almost 70 years, emphasized the value of Republicans across the country pushing back against damaging rhetoric of this kind.
Cameron explained he’s anticipating Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., facing the left on their economic agenda and shaping the overall vision of America for working men and women.
"It’s important for Republicans to make sure we’re tapping into that renewed spirit of reaching out and working with the working men and women of this country," he announced.
“I am excited that after President Biden tells us what he is going to do in terms of taxing and spending, we’re gonna hear a very positive, a very forward looking vision from Sen. Tim Scott,” he said of the South Carolina Senator.
The AG is leading a lawsuit to prevent the administration from enforcing a mandate in the American Rescue Plan Act that would prevent Kentucky and other states from cutting taxes. Cameron claimed that the Treasury Department cannot tell individual states how to run their own economic policy.
"It’s unfair and we’re going to stand up to those sorts of intrusions and that federal overreach into the commonwealth of Kentucky," he said. "It blows up the concept of federalism and state sovereignty that I think all of us across the country appreciate and respect."
