Phoenix, AZ – Today Republican Congressional candidate Vernon Parker released his plan to get the economy back on track and get Americans back to work. The plan is not an esoteric approach to economics. It’s a practical approach – an approach devised after Parker spent weeks speaking with small business owners and CEO’s throughout the Valley. The plan illustrates what those business people have said is necessary to allow them to grow and hire.
"Americans need cash in their pockets and confidence in our economic future in order for our economy to recover,” said Alyssa Pivirotto, Communications Director for Vernon Parker. "Democrat Kyrsten Sinema doesn’t seem to understand that as she’s advocated, among other misguided ideas, to close Luke Air Force Base – a move that would cost more than 17,000 jobs. The bottom line is this: We cannot tax or cut our way to an economic recovery. But we can restore America’s promise by working together to make some tough decisions.”
Some of those decisions outlined in Parker’s jobs plan include:
- Implementing a 5-year freeze of the current tax rate
- Cutting the corporate income tax rate
- Cutting unnecessary government regulation
- Eliminating the death tax
- Simplifying the tax code
Here in Arizona we need to:
- Protect Luke Air Force Base
- Build Interstate 11
- Strengthen and increase ports of entry
- Invest in education
Fixing our economy is not something we can accomplish overnight. It will take hard work, tough decisions and cooperation. Vernon can get that done. In fact, the world’s largest business federation, the US Chamber of Commerce, endorsed Vernon because of his record on pro-business issues saying,"At no other time in our nation’s history has it been more critical that Members of Congress provide leadership that protects and advances the interests of the business community.”
