Jeff Perry talks about his plan to reform Congress today:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 18, 2010 Perry announces plan to reform Congress
Would make federal government more responsible, accountable
SANDWICH – Jeff Perry’s slogan for his congressional campaign is a vow to “Wake Up Washington.” Today, he announced a specific plan to help accomplish the feat.
Perry’s Plan to Reform Congress is a list of ten proposals Perry believes would make Congress more accountable to the American people and more fiscally responsible. In particular, his proposals would help to address excessive government spending that is adding to the $13 trillion national debt and procedural issues that would make Congress more responsive to public concerns.
“Altogether, I believe these proposals will dramatically improve the way Congress does business and the quality of its work,” said Perry. “Congress needs to be more responsive and accountable to the desires of the American people. We also need more fiscal discipline and responsibility to make sure that our crippling national debt is brought back under control. My ten point plan for reform would achieve just that.”
Perry also noted that his ten-point plan for reform is only part of his agenda to “Wake Up Washington,” which is focused mainly on issues. “We need procedural and rules reform in Congress to improve the way things work in Washington. But the issues themselves matter, too. I am firmly committed to protecting Medicare and Social Security benefits for seniors, while taming the federal budget and working toward real reform of health care in our country. I am also interested in implementing a comprehensive plan to deal with illegal immigration and to passing reform of our tax laws to help small businesses create jobs.”
Perry is running for Congress in the 10th Congressional District, which includes the South Shore, Cape Cod and the Islands. For more information about Jeff Perry and his campaign, please visit: www.JeffPerryforCongress.com.
