Responding to today's report by the U.S. Department of Commerce showing a paltry 1.5% growth of the U.S. economy in the second quarter, Republican Senate candidate, Congressman Connie Mack made the following statement:
"The Nelson-Obama policies are putting shackles and uncertainty in our free market system and strangling it. Liberal Senator Bill Nelson has voted over 150 times to raise taxes, voted to undermine the Reagan-era tax cuts, the Bush-era tax cuts, and has now hitched his wagon to Barack Obama's failed, wasteful stimulus programs and the largest tax increase in American history -- ObamaCare. For 40 years, Bill Nelson's liberal policies have failed, stalling our economy and strangling job growth. If our economy is to compete and win on a global scale, then it must be allowed to flourish and prosper, with a leaner, more efficient government. The Nelson-Obama agenda has failed the people and it's time for a change. Enough is enough."
