Dold: Voters Want Real Leadership and Jobs

IR 20 May 2010 No Comment

from the Dold for Congress campaign

Wednesday, Illinois 10th District Republican Congressional candidate Robert Dold expressed impatience with the failure of the Administration and Congress to address the real problem with the U.S. economy – unemployment.  There are now 15.3 million Americans who are unemployed and are looking for jobs.  Meanwhile the federal debt will soon reach $13 trillion dollars, growing at a rate of $5 billion per day.  Unemployment continues to climb and now stands at 9.9% nationally and 11.5% in Illinois. 

Dold believes that voters share his dismay, and are clearly signaling a need for competent leadership.  He cited yesterday’s elections as another sign of the anti-incumbent mood in our Nation.

“These elections, like those held last November, are proof positive that voters are fed up with the arrogance of their elected officials, and their failure to get to work on the real problem, jobs,” said Dold.  “Voters are demanding that our leaders stop playing partisan games and get our fiscal house in order to rebuild our economy.”

Dold will bring his experience and fiscal discipline as a small business owner to Washington, and advance policies that strike at the heart of our core national problems.  

“I’m committed to making job creation my top priority when elected to Congress,” said Dold.  “I have met a payroll, created jobs, and witnessed the burden that more government intrusion has on small businesses’ ability to keep people employed.” 

Dold proposes starting with zero-based budgeting, cutting programs already deemed ineffective or not performing by the Office of Management and Budget, and reallocating stimulus spending to tax cuts to spur job creation.
