NY Congressional Candidate Stefanik: My Generation Must Solve Problems

By    |   Saturday, 04 October 2014 09:55 AM

New York Congressional candidate Elise Stefanik said in Saturday's GOP address that she's decided to seek office "because my generation can't just complain" about problems such as Obamacare and the economy — it has to help solve them as well.

Stefanik, 30, works in North Country sales and marketing for her family's business, Premium Plywood Products Inc., which it founded in upstate New York more than 20 years ago. She is also a former Bush White House aide who helped prepare Paul Ryan for the vice presidential debate.

She says that Washington has made it difficult for small businesses, such as her family's, to succeed and grow because "President [Barack] Obama has piled on more taxes, more regulations, more debt for future generations, and higher healthcare costs, hurting our Main Street economy."

"Because of Obamacare, my family's small business had our coverage canceled," she said. "Our new plan carried a 30 percent premium increase, higher deductibles, and higher out-of-pocket co-pays."

That story is becoming common around the country after the president promised lower costs and that Americans would be able to keep their health plans.

"We also have to work to repeal and replace Obamacare with commonsense proposals that lower costs, improve healthcare quality, and increase accessibility, especially for rural communities like New York's North Country," Stefanik said.

Further, she says she's pledged to work on overhauling the nation's tax code "to make it flatter, fairer, and simpler." She also wants to "clear out all the special interest loopholes and put the focus on promoting job creation and economic growth, especially for our young people."

Stefanik also said the nation needs to address energy costs.

"We need a national energy policy that helps create jobs and lowers costs while protecting our environment," she said, calling for expanding energy exploration, using alternative sources, developing nuclear energy and reining in mandates on suppliers.

"One month from today, all Americans face a clear choice: stick with the status quo of more government, more spending, and higher taxes or choose a new direction of new ideas to unleash job creation and economic growth," she said.
