Florida's workers and families have suffered greatly in today's economy. Unfortunately, Washington has done little to nothing to help us recover. The Democrat majority pushed through an $800 billion "stimulus" bill that has not created or saved the jobs it promised and only added to our national debt. This massive spending bill saddles our children and grandchildren with enormous debt that they will have to repay. It is clear; we cannot spend our way out of our current situation. Rooney opposed the Democrats' "stimulus" bill and instead supported an alternative that would have spent half the money while creating twice as many jobs. It would reduce the tax burden on small businesses providing them the ability to hire more employees and get Americans back to work. Tom Rooney is fighting for Florida's families and will continue to advocate for them and oppose plans which make it harder for our economy to recover.
