Speaking at an Ohio delegation breakfast, Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton maintained that change is needed in America’s economic and tax policies, saying that only certain groups, such as the wealthy, political insiders and those working with renewable energy, are seeing benefits.
“For everyone else in the working class and the working poor, there is zero growth,” he said. “The Obama economy is not working for those people.”
Allen County (Ohio) Republican Party Chairman Keith Cheney said Cotton’s message resonated with the audience.
“(People in America) don’t realize at times that, as Sen. Cotton said, that we’re basically taxed from the time we get up until we go to bed,” he said. “We need some tax breaks in America.”
Madison County (Ohio) delegate Kathleen Henry also agreed with Cotton’s assertion of Americans paying too many taxes.
“Increased taxes is not a solution. It’s a problem,” she said. “We need a president who believes in less tax and who can lead our country to reduce our deficit at the same time.”
