Sean Duffy promised to cut spending in Washington and bring down the deficit when he ran for Congress.
He and his house colleagues have passed more than 30 bills, including several jobs bills, which will do just that. The problem is when these bills are sent to the senate, Harry Reid refuses to put them on the floor for a vote or even debate if he doesn’t agree with them.
While Sean Duffy is doing what the people wanted him to do, the Democrat-run Senate is obstructing any forward motion in achieving those goals.
Sean and his congressional associates want a verified revenue source to pay for any new expenses rather than adding to the deficit. Apparently, the Democrats don’t want to “pay as you go,” which is what Nancy Pelosi and President Obama said they would do.
Now President Obama refuses to extend the tax cuts for people earning more than $250,000, which will bring about additional funding to cover government expenses for 8½ days, falling far short of “energizing” the economy.
Many small businesses file taxes as individuals, and according to the National Federation of Independent Business, more than 25 percent of the total workforce is employed by these small businesses. With an unemployment rate that has been above 8 percent for 41 straight months, the longest streak since the Great Depression, we can’t afford to raise taxes on the job producers.
Sean Duffy will fight to prevent this increase on job creators. We need to promote job creation and consequently widen our tax base, which will increase tax revenues that we desperately need to pay down our exorbitant deficit.
We need to support Sean if we want to cut spending and regulations and prevent tax increases that are killing our economy.
