Just today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) wrote an op-ed in The Davis Clipper about the burdensome regulations that are hurting hard-working American families. Whether it’s extremists at the EPA sanctioning how you live your life or regulations on small businesses that cost our economy $1.89 trillion in lost productivity, the Obama Administration has been adamant about making sure it is their way or the highway.
Rolling back red tape is at the heart of our plan for tax reform that is built for growth. These burdensome regulations have caused the economy of the United States to be less competitive abroad. This is simply unacceptable and we’ve presented real, tangible solutions to fix this problem.
Rep. Stewart makes clear that even, “the Supreme Court has slapped down the President’s regulatory overreach with alarming frequency.” This is not the way the American People want their government to function. They want their voice back—and we’re fighting to return it to them.
In this video message, Rep. Mimi Walters (R-CA) talks more about how we’re fighting for common sense solutions, united on behalf of the people. Says Rep. Walters, “the American people expect and deserve accountability and transparency.”
And then there’s Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-PA), an attorney who has fought for ways to replace Dodd-Frank, because he understands that the, “Washington-centric ‘solutions’ to the challenges that we face resulted in the slowest economic recovery in our history.” The government is supposed to work for the people and not the other way around.
Our economy is supposed to work for all Americans; if you are willing to work hard, you should have the opportunity to move up the ladder of success. This principle has been at the heart of our efforts to help grow the economy and provide opportunity.
As Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) puts it, “We talk a lot about breaking the cycle of poverty– this is a chance to put those words into action.” We will continue to visit Americans across the country to share our ideas and get their feedback. From small towns to big cities, ocean to ocean—Look out, because we might be stopping by your local food bank to make sure we get this right.
