This week marks the 2nd anniversary of the passage of Obamacare, and more than half of all Americans oppose it.
Obamacare serves as a stark reminder that elections have very serious consequences. We need to send more people to Washington that won’t only oppose job-killing and tax-raising pieces of legislation like Obamacare, but who are also pro-business, pro-jobs, and support policies that will unleash the productive power of the free enterprise system to get our economy roaring again.
As we’ve mentioned, the U.S. Chamber is engaged in an historic and unprecedented voter education campaign in 2012. Because elections have consequences, voters need to know who supports common-sense policies that will create jobs and who supports policies that will harm our economy.
Today, we’re profiling three more voter education ads that highlight the records of three members of Congress:
Wisconsin: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin
Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is one of those Washington politicians who’s making it harder for small businesses. She fought hard for the health care overhaul, which will heap crushing costs onto businesses, strangling them with government red tape, and making it harder for them to grown and put more Americans to work.
Higher taxes. More regulations. New burdens on businesses. That’s Tammy Baldwin’s record. And we want to make sure Wisconsinites know the truth before they vote:
Michigan: Congressman Fred Upton
As chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee in the House, Congressman Fred Upton has stood strong against new taxes that would have sent energy costs through the roof. Upton opposed Obamacare and its job-killing mandates and taxes, and he’s heading the fight to repeal it.
Michigan needs more jobs, and Michigan voters should know that they have a pro-jobs friend in Representative in Fred Upton:
Pennsylvania: Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick
Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is fighting to protect Pennsylvanians from the big government onslaught coming from Washington. He opposed Obamacare, and is working with Fred Upton and others to see that it is repealed. Fitzpatrick knows that it’s not Washington or Congress that will jumpstart our economy — it’s small businesses and American free enterprise that will get America back on track and put Americans back to work.
Pennsylvanians need to know that Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is on their side, working to protect Pennsylvania jobs and get our economy growing again.
