U.S. Representative-candidate Bill Huizenga (R-Zeeland) today announced his opposition to President Obama's latest "stimulus" plan that will further increase the national debt.
"More deficit spending is not the answer to our economic problems," said Huizenga. "Democrats controlling the House, Senate and White House have tried and tried again this method, and it is clear that government spending is not the solution."
President Obama recently announced a series of proposals including $50 billion in new government spending and temporary tax relief for business investments, a tax proposal originally introduced by House Republicans as an alternative to the first "stimulus."
"Small businesses and families need relief from the government," said Huizenga. "Deficit spending and temporary incentives simply pass the buck down the road. Job creators and families need more certainty to make decisions, as such Congress should extend the 2001 and 2003 tax rates that are set to expire in January."
