Congressman Ander Crenshaw pledged continued commitment to cutting job-killing taxes and wasteful government spending, reducing federal regulation, and repealing and replacing the costly new health care law during stops at two of Jacksonville's larger employers on Tuesday, July 6.
"Companies across Northeast Florida and the nation understand the economic policies that are needed to make their businesses thrive, and they are no-where to be found in the Obama Administration's job-killing agenda," said Crenshaw, a member of the House Appropriations Committee and the Republican leadership's deputy whip team. "With double digit unemployment, $13 trillion in debt, a $1.4 trillion deficit, and a budget-busting new health care law, they need policy that will promote solid job and economic growth. That comes from tax cuts, the elimination of wasteful government spending and stifling regulation, and repealing the new health care law with reforms that will provide common-sense, affordable health care."
On Tuesday, July 6, Crenshaw made two stops at two of Jacksonville's larger employers - Aetna and CSX. At both, he talked with employees, answered questions about current legislation on Capitol Hill, and outlined the work that is needed to heal the economy and provide common-sense, affordable health care.
"Just last Friday, we learned the economy shed 125,000 jobs in June -- another example of the urgent need for change and further proof that the Administration's trillion-dollar "stimulus' plan isn't working," Crenshaw continued. "Washington roadblocks - big spending, burdensome regulation, and high taxes - are standing in the way of a strong and bright economic future. My focus remains on pushing them aside so our free market can do its work."
