Now have the pleasure of having his opponents -- Thought that maybe I was little two kinds to the Bill Owens.
Matt Donnie and Republican running for congress in this -- districts here I'm glad to hear.
I -- -- so we topped with representative -- about.
Small business legislation.
Regulation lifting it.
I cut off all that was really good.
We'll certainly but unfortunately have to look at -- -- the total what's going on Washington look out the policies.
The laws and regulations that start with Fresno mama.
And -- fortunately my opponent continues to support.
Mean when you talk about obamacare when you talk -- regulations and have to deal with the NLRB.
When interview with the continuing.
Regulatory -- -- EPA Department of Labor and the list goes on and on a non.
You know we wouldn't talk to -- on the -- small business folks that I did he talks to like talk to back home.
In the reality people say enough is enough until it's not enough to say hey can give any exemption we needed change the culture and change the atmosphere to give people starting business.
Here let's remind people what district you guys -- enter your this is the 23 congressional district sort of the top.
Most northern part of northern New York right at northern York -- you got a lot.
-- and what accounts a lot of.
I want blue collar but you got a lot of that we have agriculture small manufacturing.
Energy things that are you know resource intensive.
And that whether it's agriculture tourism or energy things like that but it's so it sounded to me that you -- on similar pages about things I think when push comes to -- me he what you're seeing is.
Democrats vote with Democrats.
Well -- and when -- again to my opponent for -- he did when he got to congress couple years ago was to vote in favor of obamacare now.
I don't know of anything that is more job killing that would Alter the fundamental nature of our American economy and -- obamacare now we'll see what happens with the Supreme Court.
And we'll see you know where that is certainly help people like myself we pledged to overturn that because.
Not only see job killing it's gonna continue to add to the deficit which we've seen a -- of you know if you weeks back where the class act also in its -- Which was allegedly -- most of the deficit savings or at least not having to -- deficit.
It's flat out wrong for America but on -- -- -- we're already seeing back in the district.
The people get there insurance bills and medical premium coverage where it's going up 51015.
Sometimes over 15% in terms of year over year growth.
That's -- it's wrong for small business people and it's wrong for the average American.
It's mom -- -- in particular are I think are hurting more so than anybody these days meaning because of the way that the tax rules are set up and that these guys filed.
On their individual tax returns.
We also hearing a lot of talk of tax rates increasing.
This hurts them directly.
Without question and again another with a difference between my opponent myself where he wants to raise taxes -- never raise your taxes -- If you think about you know -- the people who are small businesses as saying you know you're an account yourself flows through in terms your personal but there's an LP LC -- what have you.
But it comes to its really your profit you know when you have to show for -- -- the individual income tax return.
-- you know those numbers won't truly -- people because right now.
Everybody wants to -- what jobs.
Well our -- -- growth because.
You know what there's no magic you know job fair you need to go out and promote growth you need to have the the the atmosphere.
And the particulars in the economy that will allow people have confidence.
Into what the regulation you're talking about -- take the risk you know how hard it is to go ahead.
Instead I think it's a good idea how many -- -- capital -- it's a good idea should have -- on the one or two people -- And you only have that when you say you don't have the threat of lawsuit of regulation and analysts hanging over your head in the uncertainty certainly is part of his political a lot of its.
-- I think growth though is an interesting.
Amazing she may mentioning because we don't hear about growth ever we don't hear in the Euro -- all the talk about austerity measures we're not talking about growing eurozone.
We never talk about growing the economy here we just talk about spending to fix it.
We total spending -- jobs and the only way we're gonna be able to go ahead and queue work some of the grave challenges that we have right now is to grow our way outages samples that well look back to the Reagan years you look back given the Clinton years.
Our growth was dynamic and that again that more growth more people working higher salaries more people.
Explain to everyone then how you would promote confidence -- I do believe comments is the killer in all this -- you're right.
Why should I hire someone else why should -- take on another employee why should I built that new plant I have no idea what the future's going to be like.
-- proceeded is that we're not gonna change the rules -- you add more rules number one.
Right so right now in the in the pipeline -- -- over 4000 rules.
They're set to come in and actually become new his rules that's Chris wouldn't irritants in any.
People talk well you know when the EPA and came into existence in early 1970s you can put all the rules and a thousand pages.
That's using a lot now we're over 20045000.
Pages it's insanity.
But I will let you can't help people who we're gonna be the actual entrepreneurs the business person or persons the risk takers that we're gonna raise your taxes.
That's that uncertainty people -- well let's just hold up and we'll see what happens in the 2012 election we'll see but actually comes there.
-- Tracy unite and borrowing hear from god rest his soul former congressman Jack -- If you -- love jobs and -- the job creators and that's was going -- my opponent in Washington while that's.
