Nancy Mace on Government Reform
"I believe the real fight is between the political class and the working class: the ruling elites are entrenched on one side, and the American people are taking the punches on the other. Well, it's time the American people fight back; it is my firm belief that most Americans are tired of out of control government and the double talk that comes from the career politicians who have put us in this fiscal tailspin with no clue of how to correct course," writes Mace in her new press release titled "Term Limits Are the Only Way to Stop the Ruling Elitists.
"For 59 years, two men have occupied the senate seat now held by South Carolina's senior Senator Lindsey Graham. In fact, the end of his current term will mark 20 years in Washington for Senator Graham. Of course, 20 years of "service" isn't enough for Lindsey Graham, as he has already announced his intention to stay in the beltway for at least six more years."
"Term limits would not only cap the number of years a specific person would serve in Congress, it would limit the power of lobbyists, corporations, and other special interests that invest millions of dollars in the status quo," said Mace.
Mace went on to say, "Today, countless Americans have lost faith in our government. Establishment politicians cannot be trusted. I believe we can fix the mess in Washington, but we need the right tools to make it happen. Term limits are a great place to start, but we also need bold leadership to make it happen."
If elected, Mace plans to serve no more than two terms in the U.S. Senate.
The problem we face today is that the government has overreached its boundaries. We have a federal government intruding in our families, churches and businesses. This is the definition of an oppressive government.
The question facing voters this election is simple. Do you trust this government? With your health care, with your taxes or your cell phone records. Because I don't. I believe this government is too big, too intrusive and too powerful, and must be put back in its place by the people. If we get back to the principles based in our Bill of Rights, we can reclaim the promise of America.
