Texas’ job creators are being attacked in a very real way. Employers are put at risk from the job-killing regulations of the EPA, mountains of regulations, health care fines, and more. Increasingly, business owners are making more and more of their hiring decisions based on potential government regulation. This is wrong. Government should encourage – not restrict – economic opportunity.
As Attorney General, I am advocating for hard-working Texans by keeping the heavy hand of government at bay. I believe government should be limited to its core functions and then perform those core functions well. I will defend the free market economic model that has made Texas the economic envy of the country and not succumb to pressure from the federal government or other elected officials that seek to increase government regulations.
Help us keep Texas jobs!
