“These are difficult and serious times in Delaware and across the US. Families are hurting. Jobs are lost never to return. The American Dream seems to be a faded photograph.
The status quo of Washington first and of everyday Americans last is not acceptable. Washington is broken and unable to fix itself. The incumbent has been in the Senate for nearly 12 years. He does not understand that today’s problem originated in Washington and not by the hands of the American people.
Unlike his predecessor, the late Senator Bill Roth, the incumbent has no lasting legislative achievements to his credit, such as the Roth IRA or Roth-Kemp Tax Cuts. More importantly, the incumbent seems unaware of the desperation in so many homes.
Food stamps were never anyone’s career choice. People are angry and frustrated. They have a right to be angry and frustrated and owe no politician an apology or explanation. It is the politicians who need to apologize. When our families are at risk the political prestige of a career politician means nothing.
I wish the incumbent well but my first concerns are for families, friends, neighbors and our communities. It is time for the people to stand together to fix what is broken. It’s time for the people to fix Washington and begin rebuilding our way of life and rebuilding our country”
