So it didn’t take long for my opponent to trot out the tired “War on Women” attacks, which began today. And while some Republicans may fear these nonsensical ads, I have been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to address this political absurdity.
The only political “war” going on right now is the current administration’s war on our pocketbooks, our healthcare, and our children’s futures.
What some Dems, and my opponent, won’t tell you is that they vigorously support Obamacare which has abruptly terminated the insurance plans of millions of American women, my wife and daughters included. These women have been forced to purchase insurance they either cannot afford, or do not want and the administration’s response has been “just deal with it.”
What the Dems also won’t tell you is that while the “War on Women”, sleight of hand, magic-act they are performing continues, millions of American women are toughing it out through the worst recovery in post World War II history. Every prior administration, Democrat and Republican, has presided over an America which found its growth potential again after a deep recession. But not this administration. So while millions of women are toiling away in jobs which they are overqualified for, and millions more are hoping and praying for that resume to finally reach the HR department for the job they desperately need, a group of insulated, out-of-touch DC insiders, like my opponent, are sitting around a table laughing at their own attack ad “genius”. I assure you, he will not be laughing on Election Day.
And, while we are discussing the topic, my big-spending opponent and his DC cronies still haven’t told my daughters, or yours, how they plan on helping them pay off the TRILLIONS in debt DC has piled upon their backs. Please tell my daughter why she is likely to pay incredibly high interest rates on her mortgage or car loan because there will be no “easy money” left.
I understand that there are some issues which may divide us. I also understand that some on this page may choose my opponent based on substantive policy disagreements. That’s ok. But, what’s not ok, is my opponent playing silly games while the American economy slowly strangles to death through taxation and excessive regulation.
We can fix this. I am sure that medical technology, materials science, abundant energy under our feet, food production advancements, and supply chain productivity are leading us to a tomorrow which lives now only in our dreams. But we will never get there with six-figure ad buys, by connected DC insiders, which lecture select groups of Americans about how other Americans hate them. It’s time to grow up and fix tomorrow. Americans deserve it.
