Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:
“Senator Sanders’ third strong showing in the Democratic caucuses is an alarming result for the country. His socialist agenda is a full frontal attack on the policies that promote small business, limited government, freedom and capitalism — all the ingredients that have created the booming economy we are now experiencing. President Trump’s low taxes, low regulatory policies have resulted in record unemployment and increased wages for American workers. Socialism has been tried and has failed all over the world.
Senator Sanders socialist agenda will increase taxes, nationalize American industry, and lead to socialized medicine in which government bureaucrats rather than doctors will be deciding what treatments we need, and what prescription drugs we have access to. This approach to government has not worked in Cuba or Venezuela and it won’t work in the United States.
Small business and everyday Americans are experiencing the best economy in decades with low unemployment in every demographic, rising wages and more jobs available than people to fill them. Americans just need to ask themselves whether they are better off now than they were four years ago, and the answer is a resounding yes.”
