Statement: I believe in this election that jobs and the overall economy will shape the nation's and our state's future. The best welfare program for most people is a good job, so let's get the economy going. The rising tide lifts all boats, so with more and more jobs the solutions to the state's current woes will be found. If I was given the choice between raising taxes and supporting small business, i would side with small business as that is where a lot of jobs are created.
