GEORGE ALLEN: Americans Want Job Opportunity and Debt Reduction Ideas Emitted from Government

Statement from former Governor George Allen

Allen: “Americans want job opportunity and debt reduction ideas emitted from government.”

Mt. Vernon, Va. – Former Governor and U.S. Senator George Allen issued the following statement today in reaction to President Obama’s new rules that the federal government reduce its emissions by 28% over the next decade:

“President Obama’s call for a 28% reduction in the federal government’s emissions is a worthy goal if it reduces taxpayers’ costs by 28%. Government must operate more efficiently by adopting the most innovative technologies, systems and equipment for heating, cooling, and illuminating government buildings, and reducing transportation and operational costs.

“Virginians and Americans wish to be served by an Administration looking to cut government spending as well as government emissions. Washington is creating a nightmare scenario with unprecedented deficits, steep inflation and potential sharp tax increases to pay for burgeoning debt. Americans are concerned that this unprecedented, dangerous debt will mean our children will not enjoy the same levels of opportunity that past American generations have enjoyed to achieve the American Dream.

“The Administration’s “spending freeze”, which amounts to a less than 1% reduction in spending sometime after elections this November, does not go far enough. Additionally, although the White House anticipates $15 billion in savings with this “freeze”, it has already spent almost $900 billion on a failed stimulus that has created no jobs, and is proposing upwards of $100 billion more in “stimulus”. We the people call on the President and Congress to set spending reduction goals closer to 28% than 1%.”

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
