This past week as I was traveling around the district, I was reminded of a core truth that I have seen in my life: talk is cheap in politics.
Change in our country is so important right now. We face a mountain of challenges, from stagnant unemployment, to unprecedented debt, to stifling government intrusion. Businesses are worried about the policies coming out of Washington, and as a result, are not adding jobs.
We need less talk, less attacking our political opponents, and more action to return some sense to Washington. We need less talk and bickering, and more action to reign in Congress' uncontrolled spending. We need less talk and fighting, and more action to calm fears in the private sector to get this economy moving again. We need less talk about jobs, and more action to actually aid job creation. Less talk. More solutions.
Now is the time for two things: praying for our future as a country, and working for solutions to our serious challenges.
Yes, talk is cheap these days. Anyone can make false attacks. Action, like balancing budgets, voting to cut taxes over 150 times and creating a stable business environment, takes discipline and commitment. I'm committed to running this race on ideas, not attacks. I'm committed to doing my part to take this country back.
I need your help!
