It is of critical importance that we get our economy back on track. The Democratic-led policies of the last Congress created economic uncertainty, hampering business expansion and causing rising unemployment. As a nation with a history of leading the world in innovation and business, we cannot afford to continue with these job-stifling policies. In order to create jobs in the United States, we need to encourage business through lowering taxes and revisiting job-crushing regulations of the past. We live in a great nation in which Americans want to work, not receive unemployment checks. I will work to do my part to bring job security back to our nation and bring hardworking Americans back to employment.
