Kirk Adams Unshackles Job Creators

Posted on by admin in main | Leave a comment

During campaign season, a lot of politicians talk about creating jobs. But most don’t have a record of creating jobs or passing policies that unshackle job creators. As Speaker of the Arizona House, I authored and passed the Arizona Competitiveness Package, also known as the Jobs Bill. A recent article in the Arizona Republic outlines the positive results of the law. A few highlights of the article are below.

Business Facilities magazine has ranked Arizona No. 1 nationally for new-business start-ups, largely on the shoulders of property-tax reforms and regulatory reforms that reduce costs for new businesses.

“That made me more pleased than anything,” said Kirk Adams, a former Republican House speaker who sponsored the pro-business tax reforms and now is running for Congress. “Arizona being Number 1 for new start-ups showed that our broad-based reforms really helped us right away.”

Interim CEO Sandra Watson told Site Selection magazine in May that the Adams-sponsored reforms passed in February 2011 — known as the Arizona Competitiveness Package — spawned “a 350 percent increase in projects that we are working on at a state level.”

Do you believe Washington needs results like these? I do. And I know that I can take common sense Arizona solutions to Washington. Please vote Kirk Adams next Tuesday, August 28th.

MORE UPDATES: Lobbyist Matt Salmon Cashing in on Obamacare

Posted on by admin in main, Press | Leave a comment

Matt Salmon’s lobbying firm was paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to lobby for Obamacare. As an opportunist, Matt Salmon the lobbyist wanted to get his piece of the federal healthcare pie.

***UPDATE #2***
The Salmon campaign has made some disappointing attacks on Kirk’s integrity. Click here to read JaNae Adams’ response or here to read an article on the subject by the Western Free Press.

***UPDATE #1***

Matt Salmon Lobbied to Expand Obamacare

Salmon Listed as Obamacare Lobbyist on 7 Different Documents

Today, Matt Salmon revealed that he lobbied for the expansion of Obamacare.  Salmon says that his former firms were hired to “change a provision in the proposed law which would have restricted access of people with some rare form of disease from getting the appropriate drug therapy.” A really long Washington way of saying, they actually lobbied to expand the bill by expanding drug coverage.  Only a Washington lobbyist could work to make a bill larger, and then claim, with a straight face, that he didn’t support its passage.

Salmon says that he didn’t personally lobby on Obamacare.  I’m sure he wishes this were true, but unfortunately his name is listed on 7 different disclosure documents under, “name of each individual who acted as a lobbyist in this issue area.”  Washington lobbyists like Salmon can find many ways to justify such doublespeak, but Arizonans know that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck – it’s a duck.

The companies that Salmon represented were both members of PhRMA, which spent more than $150 million to secure Obamacare’s passage. The truth is, that instead of opposing the bill, Matt Salmon was paid to make sure the pharmaceutical special interests got their cut.
