In making my decision to support Ted, I am guided by the principles best espoused by former President Ronald Reagan. I am a Reagan Republican; drawn to his vision of less taxes, less government, traditional values and a strong military. Ted articulates that same agenda with an unwavering devotion to our Constitution, the sanctity of life, and the freedoms enshrined in the Bill of Rights.
Here in Indiana, our economy is among the best in the nation. We have cut taxes every year since I was elected governor and have seen businesses create more than 130,000 private sector jobs, decreasing unemployment from over 8% to 5% today. Manufacturing makes up 30% of our gross state product – the highest share in the nation – in part because we have worked together to create a friendly pro-business environment so that more companies choose to open up shop in Indiana and provide our citizens’ with good-paying jobs.
Ted’s plan to lower and simplify taxes also favors manufacturers: they pay no tax on exports, encouraging more companies to come to Indiana and the rest of America’s heartland, rather than transport jobs overseas.
Indiana needs a partner as president who will reform the burgeoning regulatory state that has cost good-paying jobs while increasing the cost of living for hardworking Americans
