James Pearson 2014
Transcript of James Pearson 2014
Ronald Reagan once said that “the greatest leader is not ... the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”
My name is James Pearson, and I believe in the American people. Yet I also believe the Obama administration has failed the American people.
That can change in 2014. If I am elected, I will reform the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to end complex regulations like the medical device tax. I will also give states greater flexibility in tailoring federal programs to meet their needs. This approach has already been successful in Rhode Island, which received a Medicaid waiver in 2008 that allowed the state to contain costs and improve patient care.
On the economy, I’ll eliminate tax loopholes, like the domestic manufacturing tax break, that cost us billions of dollars each year. This and other revenue gains will offset the impact of cutting the massive corporate tax rates that drive businesses away from the U.S. and hurt the job market. I will also emphasize infrastructure investment to create jobs and spur economic growth.
Finally, I will support emerging democracies in the Middle East through assisting rebels in Syria and taking more aggressive steps to combat the terrorist group ISIS. I will also work to strengthen economic sanctions against Iran to better protects our interests at home and abroad.
To put it simply, I want to make the American community a better place to live for you and for my three children. That’s why I want to be your President. I hope you want the same.
Thank you, and God bless the United States of America.

James Pearson's Family

Totally not gonna happen.
Definitely gonna fight for it.
Florida- Base voters will be motivated by tax reform, as Florida prefers lower taxes (for instance, it has no personal income tax). Healthcare reform will appeal to swing voters in the state, which has a large uninsured population.
New Hampshire- Pearson’s emphasis on limited government and states' rights will appeal to voters, as the state is historically more libertarian. Swing voters who enjoy the state's lower tax rates will also support our plan for tax reform.
Iowa- Healthcare reform will motivate the base, and infrastructure development will appeal to rural voters who will see an opportunity for job creation and economic growth.
Virginia- Healthcare reform will motivate the base. Tax cuts and increased flexibility for state and local governments will draw in swing voters, as Virginia's recent economic growth has been slow.
New York- Tax reform and corporate tax cuts will draw in urban and pro-business voters in areas like NYC, and infrastructure investment will appeal to voters in cold-weather or rural areas.
Michigan- Healthcare reform will motivate the base, while infrastructure investment will attract swing voters. Michigan voters may also prefer our candidate because he is from Michigan.
Ohio- Infrastructure investment and tax reform will motivate voters who want economic growth in areas like Columbus and Cincinnati, while healthcare reform will appeal to voters whose insurance rates have gone up.
Colorado- Pearson's focus on limited government and state flexibility will appeal to Colorado voters, as shown by the state's legalization of marijuana despite federal laws. Voters will also support Pearson's socially liberal views.
What now for taxes after Republican sweep?
