Issue Position: Job Creation and Economic Development
We face tough times. We face challenges to small businesses and struggles to create jobs. We need a congressman who understands tough times, has started businesses, and created jobs. We need Travis Childers . Our leaders should have been thinking of the economic problems we face today when they passed unfair trade deals that sent our jobs overseas, gave billions in subsidies to big oil companies, ignored the home mortgage crisis, and kept spending as the deficit and national debt hit all time highs. Travis Childers believes that Mississippi needs to focus more on education and economic development in rural areas and small towns, not just in big cities. As congressman, Travis Childers will draw upon his economic development experience and work tirelessly to bring good-paying jobs to North Mississippi so young people do not have to leave the area to find good-paying jobs. In Washington, he will fight for b alanced budgets, fair trade deals, and broad middle class tax reform . . . the right prescriptions for this economy.
