Carly Fiorina appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday where she blasted the federal government, saying it, “is in shambles right now.”

Fiorinia also criticized the TSA saying, “TSA fails 96 percent of the time, it’s ineptitude.”

Jake Tapper: Netflix is now offering paid maternity leave— a full year for new mothers. You’re opposed to any kind of mandated paid maternity leave. Why?

Carly Fiorina: Well, when I was the chief executive of Hewlett-Packard we also offered paid maternity leave and paternity leave. The government, for the government to tell others how to do things, when the government hasn’t gotten its basic house in order, is not only ineffective, it’s hypocritical.

Tapper: What do you mean ‘basic house in order?’ The government shouldn’t tell anybody that they have to offer paid maternity leave?

Fiorina: I don’t think it’s the role of government to dictate to the private sector how to manage their businesses, especially when it’s pretty clear that the private sector, like Netflix, like the example that you just gave, is doing the right thing because they know it helps them attract the right talent. What I mean by the federal government not having its in order. The federal government is in a shambles right now. It’s inept. TSA fails 96 percent of the time, it’s ineptitude.
