Josh Mandel on Corporations

 


Auto bailout was un-American; I won't be the bailout Senator

Brown touted his support of the auto industry bailout and criticized Mandel for calling that support un-American. That was a reference to news reports in late August when Mandel called Brown's vote for the auto bailout "un-American" and six days later said Brown "should be ashamed of himself" for voting for the rescue plan. "How you would be so out of touch with both parties boggles the mind," Brown said, facing Mandel.

"I would not be the bailout senator," Mandel said, meaning he would have voted against the auto bailout and the federal stimulus package. Mandel countered that people believe Washington, D.C. is broken because there is a "crop of career politicians who care more about their careers than their state," referring to Brown's 20-year tenure in Congress, first in the U.S. House and now in the Senate. "The only way to change Washington is to change the people we send there," Mandel said.

Businesses hurt by complicated taxes & aggressive regulation

Less regulations and a commitment to stopping reckless spending are the necessary steps to returning jobs to Ohio, Mandel said. His plan to bring jobs back to Ohio included easing tax burdens on small businesses and farmers and creating an environment conducive to manufacturing. "Small businesses are hampered by an overly complicated tax code and an overly aggressive regulatory environment," Mandel said. "We have a federal government that treats small businesses as guilty until proven innocent."
