Recently President Obama spoke about the economy at a news conference, saying "The private sector is doing fine."  We all know that with an 8.2% unemployment rate nationwide, the private sector is not doing fine.  Couple that with the latest Gallup Poll, that shows the underemployment rate at 18%, and it is abundantly clear that our economy has a long way to go. (http://www.gallup.com/poll/125639/gallup-daily-workforce.aspx)

The question is what do we do about it?  It does little good to engage in playing that old Washington game - blame your predecessor.  The people of Tennessee expect more of us.  That's why, when President Obama outlined his jobs plan back in January, during a joint session of Congress, I knew that it was time for me to act.  It's one thing to be against something - but the people expect more - they expect solutions.

I've introduced a seven point plan called "Less Government, More Jobs."  My plan would eliminate the capital gains tax, strip power from regulatory agencies, open up energy exploration, work to improve free trade and directly address real tax and tort reform.

We simply must do better.  More government is not the answer to our economic problems.  Main Street and everyday Tennesseans are the solutions to our economy's problems.
