Republican Jeb Bush backs federal hiring freeze, lobbying rules

(Reuters) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said on Monday he would overhaul Washington's culture with a federal balanced budget amendment, a freeze on government hiring & a longer ban on former members of Congress becoming lobbyists.

"We need a president willing to challenge the whole culture in our nation's capital – & I mean to do it," Bush, the former Florida governor, said in remarks posted on his campaign website on Monday.
