Jobs and economy

By E. Kent Hinesley

Candidate for United States Representative; District 2

This information is provided by the candidate
Income taxes and the size of government should be reduced.
We should be allowed to earn as much as we can and keep what we earn. Government barriers to entry into business should be eliminated. There should be different standards for large corporations vs. small businesses when it comes to complying with government regulations. The internet should not be taxed. No business should be subsidized. Income taxes and the size of government should be reduced. There are two ingredients to economic success 1) knowledge and 2) resources. The government needs to create a socio-economic environment that allows access to knowledge and resources by all citizens to that they can fully utilize their potential. As a representative I would constantly be asking people in the industry especially entrepreneurs, researchers and inventors, how can we foster an environment of invention and growth. Many would say "laze faire" just leave us alone. That's the philosophy or ideology favored by most Libertarians. Although I favor "laze fair" I don't see it as an absolute. When making decisions regarding our economy we need leaders who make decisions, not based on their ideologies, or what they would like to be true, or the desires of campaign contributors, but on the facts and the numbers. They also need to take into consideration environment and equality because the goal is not just prosperity but the overall quality of life or general welfare of the nation.
