Former Democratic Senate Challenger
Rein in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Political newcomer Greg Orman made his debate debut against three-term incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts in a race that's drawing national attention. Orman agreed with Sen. Roberts on several policies, including reining in the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, worked to stake out the center, talking about his support for background checks at gun shows, while criticizing social-services programs as making it easier than ever to do nothing. He repeatedly said he tried both parties and didn't like either.

We can protect our environment AND create jobs
In Washington today one side says we must protect our environment no matter what impact it will have on our economy. The other side says doing anything at all will cost us jobs and is therefore unacceptable.
Both sides have dug in and don't believe there's any basis for cooperation.
The truth is this is a false choice, and I know it because as a businessman I did both.
The first company I ever started, Environmental Lighting Concepts, designed and installed energy efficient lighting systems for commercial and industrial buildings.
Our company created jobs, helped the environment, protected natural resources, and made money for our customers. We used the opportunity to cut energy and ultimately help the environment as a good business decision.
