One Overhead Expense with which businesses have to deal is government regulation. Without question we have to create specifications for a safe work place. When permissible levels of non-toxic chemicals in the work environment are tightened from Parts per Million to Parts per Billion, however, the dramatic increase in cost to do that is borne on the backs of our businesses.
I believe government can rationalize many of the onerous regulations it has imposed without doing any harm whatsoever to the health and safety of its citizens or the quality of its natural environment. With your help I will take my place as your spokesperson in the US Senate and begin implementing these needed changes.
During his campaign, Zaccaria said, he will also lay out Reed's "anti-economy and anti-business stands," and how much his support for the Affordable Care Act--known as ObamaCare--threaten to "cost the average Rhode Islander."
REED: These are serious challenges to the military. I don't think it has to happen; [there is] proposed legislation that would defer the sequestration to next year. It would be paid for in a balanced way by additional revenue as well as additional reduction in spending.
Q: Tax hikes?
REED: Indeed. And that, I think, is the way to proceed, avoiding the blunt across-the-board cuts and also giving us chance to get back into regular order, proposing a budget, doing an appropriations bill. The sequestration will preempt us from getting a budget done.
Q: It's always that you guys need more time and that--can we put it off until next year. Answer me this: if these cuts not just go into effect but are allowed to stay in effect, will the U.S. be less safe as a result of these across-the-board cuts?
REED: Even if you give flexibility, you still have significant reduction. It's not just defense. It's education, it's border security.
