Think about the challenges facing our economy:
- Unsustainable entitlement programs that threaten to bankrupt the Treasury.
- The largest tax increase in U.S. history starting on January 1.
- More than a trillion dollars in indiscriminate cuts that will eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs.
- Thousands of new regulations in the works to clamp unprecedented controls on every aspect of business and our daily lives.
- These issues, if not addressed soon, could plunge us back into recession and threaten our position as a world economic leader.
Business has a choice: It can sit by as elected leaders punt on the critical issues, or it can do something to change the dynamic in Washington by electing more pro-business candidates to the House and Senate who will pass policies to get our economy back on track. As Congress has grown increasingly polarized and pro-growth legislation has become increasingly difficult to pass, policy changes will depend on putting the right people in place.
During campaign seasons, we hear the media talk about important voting blocs: soccer moms, minorities, suburbanites, and NASCAR dads. This year, let’s make the free enterprise voting bloc the one that makes the difference. Success is in our reach. Of the 435 House and 33 Senate contests, the outcome of a relatively few can tip the balance of power in Congress. With an energized pro-business electorate, we can strike a major blow against uncertainty, pessimism, and lack of confidence in our economy and help create a new environment in Washington that encourages—rather than shackles— innovation, risk taking, and confidence in a brighter future.
This is a democracy. If Americans don’t like what’s going on in Washington, they can change who they send there. Business must take this democratic right and opportunity to heart and pull out all the stops to rescue and advance American free enterprise.
