The U.S. Chamber is currently engaged in a historic, multi-state voter education campaign to ensure American voters know where their candidates stand on the issue of jobs.
Are they supporting pro-jobs policies to advance American Free Enterprise and put America back to work?
Or are they playing politics over smart policy ... blocking common sense measures that will get our economy back on track?
Today, we highlight three of our most recent ads that let voters know where Senator Sherrod Brown, Congressman Rick Berg, and Congressman. Jim Matheson stand:
Ohio: Senator Sherrod Brown
Business owners across the country cite the health care law as a major hindrance to hiring and growing their operations. In Ohio, more than 2.2 million Ohioans voted to reject Obamacare. Pretty clear message, right?
Not to Senator Sherrod Brown, who called the vote “confusing,” saying that it didn’t tell us anything. We’re airing this ad to help remind Ohio voters that it was Sherrod Brown’s vote that helped allow Obamacare to pass the Senate:
North Dakota: Congressman Rick Berg
While Sherrod Brown is voting for job-killing policies like Obamacare - North Dakota Congressman Rick Berg is championing measures to put people in his state back to work. For example, he supports the Keystone XL pipeline, which would create tens our thousands of new American jobs and help secure America’s energy future. Berg rejected President Obama’s politically motivated decision to reject the XL Pipeline and the jobs it’ll create. In this ad, we highlight how Rick Berg stood up for new American jobs and new American energy:
Utah: Congressman Jim Matheson
Another Congressman fighting for American free enterprise is Jim Matheson of Utah. He understands that for businesses to create jobs, they can’t be over burdened by oppressive taxes and regulatory red tape. Matheson has a record of voting to lower taxes on businesses and reduce government regulations so that American free enterprise can grow, innovate, and create jobs. Watch our new ad about Congressman Matheson here:
These are just a few samples of our voter education efforts that are currently underway.
