These are tough times for Pennsylvania families and businesses. As I travel around our state I hear the concerns average Pennsylvanians have about Washington's continuing runaway spending and mounting job losses here in our state. While families and businesses tighten their belts, the federal government continues to drive our nation deeper into debt.
Pennsylvanians are concerned that the proposals being pushed in Washington on health care, taxes, and other issues make it harder for the economy to grow, harder to create jobs, and harder to get us out of this recession. Pennsylvania needs representatives who will focus on creating new jobs and leading us through the harsh economic climate. That’s why I am committed to bringing the values of Pennsylvania to Washington to turn things around.
I want to run a campaign focused on ideas. Please take some time to read my positions on the issues and see how you can get involved with my campaign to change Washington and get our country back on track.
