More taxation, regulation, and litigation will not create more jobs. Government takeovers of the economy have failed while the size and the scope of the federal government has exploded. Washington has tied the hands of small business owners and job creators with onerous regulations and backward fiscal policies that have stalled the economy, slowed innovation and destroyed jobs. We need common sense, pro-growth policies to give small businesses and entrepreneurs renewed confidence in our economy and to remove Washington as the roadblock to job creation.
The private sector creates jobs, not Big Government! This is a fundamental economic principle that Washington has forgotten. Over the past year we've seen our economy lose millions of jobs. Americans continue to be laid off or have a difficult time finding work.
With the right tools, small businesses across the nation can and will create good paying jobs. However, to foster that environment, Washington must promote tax cuts and encourage growth and innovation—not stifle it.
I have steadfastly opposed the current Administration's anti-market, pro-big government legislation. Government intrusion only hurts small business and the private sector as a whole. I will continue to fight for policies that keep taxes low, expand access to credit, and reduce duplicative regulation. Only then will it be easier for small businesses to keep their doors open and to create jobs.
