Economy and Jobs
"I know how jobs are created; and I know big government helps destroy jobs." - Congressman Roger Williams
Roger Williams bring 41 years of private sector experience to the Congress. As the owner and operator of his own car dealership, Roger knows that government can’t create jobs; only entrepreneurs can do that. But government can destroy jobs through high taxes, big spending and over-regulation.
With America still experiencing historically high unemployment rates, Roger is convinced that a new approach needs to be taken to get the economy moving
His plan for creating jobs is designed to take power away from Washington and give it to families and small businesses.
- Lower marginal tax rates;
- An overhaul of the tax code;
- Reduced federal spending;
- Less burdensome federal regulations;
