Another week, another disappointing jobs report. And, predictably, still no plan put forward by incumbent Congressman Tim Bishop to fix this economic mess.
Congressman Bishop likes to blame other people for the economic woes facing Long Island.
In Tim Bishop’s world, he’s never accountable. He never takes responsibility. It’s always some else’s fault.
Well, the fact of the matter is that Tim Bishop deserves his share of the blame for our dismal economy and soaring unemployment here on Long Island.
According to the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 45,272 more people unemployed on Long Island today than there were the day that Tim Bishop was sworn into Congress nearly a decade ago.
Long Island’s unemployment rate has risen from 5.2% all the way up to 8%. That’s a 54% increase!
Congressman Bishop’s repeated votes for trillions in higher taxes, more spending and irresponsible debt have helped to cripple Long Island’s economy and put our nation more than $16 trillion in debt.
His rabid support for President Obama’s big government takeover of healthcare has only made it worse for small businesses too afraid to hire new workers.
The $700 billion in cuts to Medicare and multitude of new tax increases that are being implemented to pay for Obamacare will only make Suffolk County a more expensive place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
It’s clear that we need to change Congress. And we can start by changing our Congressman.
I am running with a specific , boost small businesses and grow Long Island’s economy. My plan will help to make Suffolk County more affordable for middle-class families, small businesses and seniors on a fixed income already struggling to pay sky-high property taxes.
I urge you to read the whole plan at www.Randy2012.com/jobsplan or call my Campaign Headquarters at 631-775-9230 and we will send you a copy.
With your support for me on November 6th, we will work together to fix the mess in Washington and move Suffolk County in a new, more positive direction.
