There are less than 3 months left until voters head to the polls with an opportunity to vote for jobs and American free enterprise. And while a number of candidates for running for office clearly embrace the power of free enterprise, there are unfortunately those that believe that more government is the solution, not the problem.
Our economy is suffering, and voters need to know where their candidates on issues vital to our economic recovery.
People such as…
Ohio: Sen. Sherrod Brown
For Sherrod Brown, it doesn’t matter what the question is, because the answer is always the same: more government. Brown was a key vote that allowed Obamacare to pass into law. As a result, we’ll have higher taxes, crushing burdens on businesses, and unaffordable costs of upwards of $1 trillion. And while energy prices were on the rise, Brown voted for less energy exploration.
Sherrod Brown: Supporting big government at every turn.
Wisconsin: Rep. Tammy Baldwin
Why is Tammy Baldwin voting to make it more difficult for us to recover from the great recession? She voted for new regulations that will strangle small businesses instead of empowering them to lead our recovery. And she fought vigorously in support of the President’s health care law, a policy that will mean lost jobs and impose crushing new taxes and burdens on Americans and businesses.
We need leaders in Washington who create conditions for businesses to grow, not stifle them with anti-growth policies.
Virginia: Tim Kaine
With unemployment still over 8%, we need policies that will create new American jobs. But Tim Kaine seems to think we need more big government. Kaine supported billions in new taxes on Virginians, to increase burdensome regulations on businesses, and supported policies that would have increased energy costs for families. And, he’s still defending Obamacare, even as it’s set to cost Americans more than $1 trillion dollars, with the majority of Americans opposing it.
It’s American business that will lead the economic recovery. Not Tim Kaine and his big government policies.
