We see Linda taking some flack for her background in general and this new TV ad in particular. That brings an important issue to the fore. Linda McMahon has had a JOB, has met a payroll, has built something and created real jobs for real people, not government hand-outs administered by bureaucrats. We're sorry that some may find her family business too coarse but we prefer real world experience to life long politicians with only theoretical knowledge.
“People create jobs, not governments.”
Washington got the stimulus dead wrong. In a matter of months, Washington spent trillions of dollars and ran it all through government bureaucracy. Instead of creating new private sector jobs, we got more job losses, bigger government and more debt — more than $12 trillion in federal debt that will cause long-term harm to the economy.
I believe government’s role in economic recovery must be to help create an environment where small businesses can succeed and grow. Small businesses have historically created 70% of new jobs — jobs that are self-sustaining and have a multiplier effect. Government jobs don’t do that. To grow, small businesses need a reduced tax burden and predictability so that they can plan and make investments. The economy is trying to recover, but Washington won’t let it. It is spending too much and creating tax and regulatory uncertainty that is paralyzing small businesses and stifling job creation.
It’s time for Washington to take an honest assessment, recognize these economic policies are failing and change course. We need to stop government growth and deficit spending. Smaller government will decrease the tax burden on small businesses and it will help reduce debilitating federal regulations that make it difficult to impossible for small businesses to plan for the future, expand and create jobs.
