I am a little late in posting this article/email from my representative to Congress. Bill Flores is a freshman. I like what he said about Obama’s job speech so I am going to post his e-mail. In doing so I want to keep the pressure on him and the rest of congress not to cave in to Obama and his brown shirts. We the people are going to hold you responsible for you actions, we are keeping record of how you vote, how well you keep your campaign promises, letters etc. Do not back down my fellow patriots, keep up the phone calls, e-mails, letters however you correspond. Let them know you are actively monitoring their actions. If you are not active now is the time to become active. Remember freedom is not free! When good men do nothing evil men prevail. Stand up and be counted among the brave and the free. Now for the letter. GRW
Howdy Texans! Last night, President Obama addressed a Joint Session of Congress to ask for even more taxpayer money. The American people have heard this speech before and are tired of listening to the Obama administration’s ineffective Washington rhetoric without seeing any results.
The president’s economically unsound policies, unfulfilled promises and massive spending programs have failed to create an environment conducive to job creation and economic growth. Our national unemployment rate is currently at 9.1 percent and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that it will remain above 8 percent until 2014. After two and a half years of record spending, job-destroying taxes and an oppressive regulatory regime, President Obama and Washington Democrats have continuously abdicated their responsibilities and left struggling Americans with no plan to lead our country out of this spending and debt-driven economic crisis. In his speech last night, President Obama proposed the same failed idea that Washington can grow jobs and restore the economy; however, the American people know that the government does not create jobs or economic growth. So-called government stimulus spending only wastes hard-earned taxpayer dollars. The private sector needs certainty to invest in people, property and equipment.
Throughout the district work period, I visited with job creators from many industries in Central Texas. Their message was clear. Americans want Main Street solutions – it is time to get Washington out-of-the-way. For eight months, House Republicans have continued to focus on a common-sense, private sector blueprint for job creation and economic growth. In our “Plan for America’s Job Creators” we are pressing for comprehensive tax reform to improve American competitiveness, significant cuts in federal spending, an improved regulatory environment in Washington and a comprehensive energy policy in order to restore the confidence needed for small businesses and entrepreneurs to invest in our economy. House Republicans are committed to taking every possible step to spur job creation and get our economy back on track so that we may get America back to work again and restore our Nation’s promise, prosperity and security for future generations.
