On Wednesday, April 12, I debated Kip Smith, Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) and Congressman Mark Neumann in Waukesha.
From jobs and the economy to taxes, spending and health care, I spoke about how I am the only candidate with the real world, practical experience to fix the mess created in Washington by career politicians and political insiders.
During the debate, I talked about a number of issues:
On experience: “I’ve spent 25 years in the private sector building companies, turning around companies and creating hundreds of jobs.”
On the budget: “We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to bring our baseline back to 2006 before all the crazy spending, and I think we also need to focus on the growth side. We need to give confidence to business people…so they will make an investment in this economy and create jobs.”
On raising the debt ceiling: “The most irresponsible thing career politicians have done over the last two decades is raise the debt ceiling...without balancing the budget.”
On ObamaCare: “We need to push our health care system back in a private sector direction. We need to allow people to make choices for themselves.”
On Green Energy subsidies: “This is crony capitalism at its worst…campaign contributions for guaranteed government loans are fundamentally wrong”
