  • Baltimore, MD (1888PressRelease) July 02, 2010 - Mikulski has spent a lifetime in Washington helping to create the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Legislation and policies supported by Barbara Mikulski are contributing to an economy that continues to falter under the weight of irresponsible spending to pay for a liberal social agenda. Jim Rutledge said, "It's time to tear up Barbara Mikulski's credit card".

    This week economic reports show that efforts to stabilize and grow the economy are failing. Manufacturing growth has slowed while jobless claims have risen. Manufacturing activity has fallen to the lowest level in six months and pending home sales continue to decline. Americans don't believe more spending and higher taxes are the answer. Over 60% of Americans think the Nation is heading in the wrong direction and so does Jim Rutledge.

    Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts summed up the philosophical differences in Washington regarding how Congress should provide solutions. Sen. Brown said, "It's the checking account versus the credit card." Democrats like Barbara Mikulski want to spend and tax their way out of a recession while conservatives like Jim Rutledge believe we need to lower taxes, cut spending, and reduce the deficit. Rutledge said, "President Reagan showed us that America can grow and prosper by reducing the size of government and lowering taxes."

    Americans are paying a heavy price while Barbara Mikulski and Barack Obama experiment and push for a liberal social agenda which is already destroying the economy of many European Nations. World leaders whose countries are suffocating under a mountain of debt and social entitlement programs rebuffed Obama's economic initiatives this past week. The solutions are clear to the rest of the world that it's time to stop spending and reduce the deficits. Jim Rutledge encourages Marylanders to help restore the economy by ending Barbara Mikulski's spending spree.
