Creating Good Jobs

As a small businessman, I know what it takes to make a payroll, balance a budget and create good jobs. I also know the value of having a good job, and the pride and dignity that comes with being able to provide for your family.

I believe that it’s time to get Americans back to work by rebuilding America, because infrastructure is not a partisan issue. To invest in our infrastructure, I am one of the lead sponsors of the Rebuild America Jobs Act, which would hire Americans to repair our crumbling infrastructure. Fixing our roads, bridges and schools is vital to our future, and I’m proud to continue to push to get people back to work rebuilding this country.

Finally, I think that one of the most commonsense steps this country can take to create good jobs is to get the government out of our pockets and off our backs, which is why I am fighting against unnecessary and excessive regulation, especially when it comes to our domestic energy producers and small businesses.
