Does America Have 9 More Years to Wait for Reform?

Friday, June 15, 2012 | Comments (6)
By Kevin Lundberg's own admission, his nine years in office have produced little tangible benefit yet. A quote from his website: "In my nine years in the Colorado legislature I have had many opportunities to take the easy way out and leave the hard fight for someone else. That has never been my style. I have been tenaciously introducing bills year after year to go after the big issues, and my ideas are slowly taking root."

America is at an important crossroads and is in need of serious reform and decisive leadership on issues. America cannot afford to wait nine or more years for important reform ideas to "slowly take root."

Federal spending is 25% of GDP and climbing. By comparison, in the post World War II era, federal spending has averaged only 20 percent of GDP. The predictable but devastating result of this over-spending is massive deficits and debt.  Debt has reached truly alarming levels.  Something must done quickly to cap federal spending and cut wasteful programs that serve the needs of politicians in Washington rather than the constituents they represent.

Misplaced Priorities

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 | Comments (4)

Government spending sets new records every year. Our nation's debt is growing by the trillions. Millions of Americans are without jobs, are underemployed, or are at risk of losing their jobs. The focus in Washington needs to be on getting our nation’s fiscal house in order. I have committed to do that and I am the only candidate running in the 2nd Congressional District who is prepared to do that on Day 1.

Eric Weissmann, along with other prominent Republicans, spoke at the 2012 Denver Lincoln Day Dinner to a group The Colorado Statesman deems "crucial" to the presidential election.  In the current dismal economy, Colorado needs business-oriented candidates from the top of the ticket with Mitt Romney, to Eric Weissmann at the Congressional level, to help get our state back to work.  Eric is committed to Firing Jared Polis in the 2nd Congressional District, a plurality Independent district with less than 2 percentage point Democrat active voter registration advantage.

Don't take our word for it...
