Claims that career politicians in Washington shoulder much blame for current economic and fiscal problems
(Middle Island, NY) Saying that increasingly out-of-touch, career politicians in Washington shoulder much of the blame for the current economic and fiscal mess, self-made businessman Randy Altschuler reaffirmed his support for congressional term limits today.
“The wanton abuse of taxpayer-funded mailers promoting incumbent Members of Congress and gerrymandered congressional districts drawn to protect them, have created career politicians in Washington who routinely put self-interest ahead of what is in the best interests of their constituents,” said Altschuler. “Out of 435 congressional districts, probably less than 100 of them could be considered competitive enough to give a strong challenger a chance to unseat an incumbent. That means more than 75% of the people in Congress are untouchable; if that isn’t a broken system, than I don’t know what is.”
Altschuler said there needs to be a new mindset in Washington.
“I am not running for Congress to make it my career,” said Altschuler, who built two American companies from the ground up, created more than 1,000 American jobs and is running with a 10-Point Jobs Plan for Long Island www.Randy2012.com/jobsplan. “I am running because the economic and fiscal problems created by Washington politicians need to be fixed by people from outside of Washington. As I tell people on the trail every day – if you truly want to change Congress, you need to start by changing your Congressman.”
