Kyrillos Announces Comprehensive Jobs Plan

Trenton, July 26 2012… A little less than two months ago, Senator Joe Kyrillos announced that he was embarking on a statewide jobs tour. After 41 months of over 8 percent unemployment, and 20 million people unemployed or underemployed, Kyrillos wanted to hear directly from the job creators themselves the challenges they face. 

Kyrillos toured 19 businesses of all sizes and types from Sussex to Cape May Counties and one message became abundantly clear: the policies coming out of Washington from politicians like Senator Bob Menendez are making things worse. 

“Americans are struggling through the weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression,” said Kyrillos. “Families that played by the rules and worked hard are not looking for a handout or another government program, but for the opportunity to use their talent, industry, and smarts to build their own future. After listening to the difficulties these job creators face first-hand, I was able to create a jobs plan that directly addresses their needs. 

“We need jobs and my plan creates them by restoring fiscal responsibility, reforming the tax code, reducing unnecessary and burdensome red tape, and restoring our nation’s place as the home of innovation. It will also establish programs to build a competitive workforce and put forth solutions to our nation’s energy crisis. The prosperity of our country is in jeopardy. We cannot afford to stay the course Bob Menendez has charted for our future. The opportunity for profound economic growth is before us, and we must seize it.” 

Kyrillos also accepted an endorsement today from the National Federation of Independent Business. 

“Senator Joe Kyrillos has proven himself to be a strong advocate for the small-business community,” said Laurie Ehlbeck, State Director, NFIB New Jersey. “He has established a reputation in our state for supporting measures to help businesses thrive, and we need his leadership at the federal level now more than ever. Senator Kyrillos has been awarded the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award for his work in the New Jersey legislature, and we trust that he will continue to fight for small business in the United States Senate.”

NFIB has over 5,000 members in New Jersey. Kyrillos’ endorsement comes from NFIB’s Save America’s Free Enterprise Trust (SAFE), the association’s political action committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues including health care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
