Create work, cut our taxes

The Republicans were right. They talked the talk, but didn’t walk the walk.

Rep. Rick Larsen can promote vital, lasting employment and not some artificial stimulus from the government. We need work that people would pay for out of their own pockets without coercion.

He should reduce taxes, a form of enslavement, and reduce regulations to business growth.

Rick, and every other government spokesman (which is all he is since Obama took over the purse strings) is attempting the opposite.

After stealing trillions from the workers, he is touting his benevolence by giving government employees millions of dollars collected from the taxed and raising our indebtedness to other nations.

We are smarter than that. We know how to spend for our own families in a creative and thrifty way. Let us keep our money, unleash us. We will do much better than ol’ Rick and his gang.
