Get Our Country’s Fiscal House in Order
The same irresponsible financial policies that got Wall Street into trouble are now repeating themselves in Washington— only this time on an even bigger scale. As early as 2004, Peter Schiff started warning about the looming financial crisis. His book, Crash Proof, published in Feb 2007, outlined how monetary and regulatory policies distorted market forces, resulting in risky mortgages that would lead to a severe financial crisis. His predictions came true in 2008!
Peter remains a strong opponent of the government’s $700 billion Wall Street bailout package. As Connecticut’s next Senator, he will keep Washington’s spending addiction in check. Peter believes that we cannot borrow and spend our way to economic prosperity. Most Connecticut families are making cutbacks during this recession, and Washington needs to match their sacrifice.
No More Bailouts: Peter Schiff Was a Vocal Critic of the $ 700 Billion Bailout Package (TARP) & Will Always Oppose Government Handouts
Impose a Hard Cap on the National Debt to Control Government Spending
End All Pork Barrel Spending & Congressional Earmarks
Oppose Obama’s “Stimulus Package” that Puts America Deeper in Debt
End Government’s Assault on Jobs & Stop Outsourcing the American Dream
Connecticut’s unemployment rate is rising fast. But, don’t believe any politician who tells you that he or she can create jobs. Government is the least efficient and most expensive means of job creation. President Obama’s stimulus package cost taxpayers $160,000 for every job it created. That’s an ineffective way to put the country back to work, especially when taxpayers ultimately pay the bill. Obama’s stimulus plan probably destroyed more jobs than it created. We need government to get out of the way and allow small businesses to create jobs. Small businesses aren’t asking for a bailout; they just need the freedom to grow and prosper.

Encourage Capital Investment by Letting Small Businesses Immediately Write-off All Long-Term Investments
Provide Tax Incentives to New Manufacturing Businesses
End the Weak Dollar Policy that Undermines Savings, Lowers Our Standard of Living & Discourages Investment
Reduce Government Regulations that Prevent New Businesses from Starting Up & Keep Established Businesses from Expanding
Get Our Government Back to Basics
Congress can’t handle the problems currently in front of them. Yet, that hasn’t stopped President Obama and the Democrats from plotting new expansions into every aspect of our daily lives. All the while, our roads are deteriorating. School facilities are out-of-date. And public infrastructure is on the verge of collapse. The government’s priorities are backwards.
America’s Path to Prosperity Lies with Savings, Investment & Production
End Runaway Entitlements, Government Handouts & Corporate Bailouts
Fight Against Backdoor Regulations on Global Warming
Support the Limited Government Principles of America’s Founding Fathers
Health Care: Keep Government Out of Personal Medical Decisions
The government can’t handle the problems that they currently have on their plate, and they want to expand their influence to our medical decisions. Not only is President Obama’s socialized medicine a scary intrusion into our personal lives, it’s also too expensive. The national debt is approaching $14,000,000,000,000 while our national deficit is $1,420,000,000,000. We can’t saddle future generations with another trillion dollars of debt to pay for Obama-care. It’s as unwise as it is irresponsible.
