EDITOR: Ron Johnson is campaigning for re-election to the U.S. Senate. He is running against former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold, the candidate he defeated in the last election.
As the former owner of a manufacturing business that he helped build over a span of 31 years, he knows firsthand how a high level of uncertainty causes businesses to delay action. Business owners and managers need to feel confident that the rules of the game won’t change before they are willing to risk their hard-earned capital to start or expand their business.
Washington cannot create the jobs that America needs to pull out of this depressed economy. Going further into debt to expand government won’t solve the problem. Economic expansion must come from the private sector.
Senator Johnson promises to work with his colleagues in both the House and Senate to pass a real pro-growth agenda that will promote long-term, self-sustaining jobs in the private sector.
The elements will include a credible plan to limit spending and the size of government, a regulation moratorium, tax reform, and a Sunset Committee that will actually begin to eliminate harmful laws and regulations.
Wisconsin has a bright future. I recommend that we re-elect Sen. Ron Johnson.
