I have seen my fair share of battles throughout my years of service to our country. In the Senate, I have waged war against wrong, whether it is today’s massive federal spending, government-run health care or violent extremism that threatens our great nation.
President Obama is leading an extreme, left wing crusade to bankrupt America — leaving the bill with our children and grandchildren. I stand in his way every day in an effort to serve as a voice for the millions of Americans who disagree with the direction he is taking our country. If I get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in Washington, so be it. I’ll keep fighting for jobs, economic growth and reduced spending as long as I’m in serving in the U.S. Senate.
My sincere thanks,
