U.S. Senate candidate Ken Cope offers 4-point jobs plan to spur U.S. economy (Cornyn opponent)

MIDLOTHIAN – Getting government out of the way of the private sector is key to driving growth and creating more jobs, Ken Cope, candidate for U.S. Senate, said today as he detailed the four fundamental elements of his plan to revive the nation's economy.

Cope, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel and successful business executive, is challenging incumbent Sen. Cornyn in the March 4 Republican primary.

"Things may look bad for our country right now, but America is far from finished," Cope said. "Strong leadership can fix our country's problems. That is why in my campaign I have done more than just criticize Sen. Cornyn and Washington.

"I have put forth thoughtful solutions to this country's problems. That is the leadership that Texans have the right to expect in their U.S. Senator, and today I'm proposing what I call the Ken Cope Jobs Plan."

Cope noted that the most important element in his Jobs Plan is the repeal of Obamacare, which has weighed down the economy ever since its passage in 2010.

"Obamacare must go. In its place, I have proposed a free market alternative that could start to repair the damage that the horribly designed Affordable Care Act has done to our economy. While the President plays politics, we must remain focused on repairing what the Democrats and our weak Republican leadership have wrought," Cope said. The other elements of the Ken Cope Jobs Plan are:

•Scaling back the reams of over-intrusive regulations that do little more than hold businesses back, and trimming the power of agencies such as the EPA and the departments of Energy and Labor.

We had all of those ideas in the Bush administration and jobs were leaving for China by the boatload.

The only way to spur the economy is to get rid of unconstitutional agencies like the EPA. Unless the agencies that put so much red tape and expense in the way of small business are eliminated there will be no recovery other than to the pockets of those in office.
