Here’s an idea. What if a campaign gave voters actual solutions to our current challenges? What if a campaign not only had total transparency but also gave voters the details of those solutions? What if a campaign completely freed itself from Wall Street, K Street PACs and big money, and answered only to voters and directly to voters? Well, you don’t have to wonder “What if?” We are that campaign, Marisa DeFranco is our candidate, we are here and we are fighting for a real democracy that cannot be bought and sold or auctioned off to the highest bidder. Big money campaigns send lots of emails that are long on scare tactics and empty rhetoric, but short on ideas and solutions. We do things differently–we insist on quality and substance. We are happy to have you as a partner in this journey to a healthy, vibrant and thriving democracy. Marisa is asking for just 20 minutes of your time over the next 20 days. Over the next 20 days, we will email you one idea per day on how we can transform the current do-nothing Congress into a democracy that works for hardworking people. Each one will only take you one minute to read. That’s 20 Days, 20 Emails, 20 Minutes.
That’s just 20 steps to a Total Democracy Makeover Marisa’s opponents are in the kowtowing business–kowtowing to party establishment, big money, PACs, and K Street. Marisa is in the solutions business. The solutions business for Main Street’s small businesses–your business. Our small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, but Congress undermines us at every turn. If Congress would stop crushing our innovation and creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, then together we can build a strong and thriving Main Street that will restart the engine of our economy and create jobs. If you think receiving 20 emails in 20 days is too much, tune out and let the insiders continue to rule your life and your business without your input. But if you are willing to take just one minute per day, Marisa will show you that you do not have to settle for empty rhetoric and the status quo.
DeFranco Delivers Idea #2: Equal Opportunity for Small Businesses. Cut all corporate subsidies
Currently, Congress does nothing for small businesses and everything for corporate monopolies. Congress uses our taxpayer dollars and the tax dollars paid by small business to freely hand out corporate subsidies to the biggest corporations while small businesses are shutting their doors on Main Street. It’s a nifty trick–take taxes from small businesses on the front end, subsidize corporate monopolies with no strings attached, stack the odds so small businesses can’t compete with the monopolies, monopolies gobble up Main Street and grow even bigger. Once monopolies have control of the market, they increase prices, and the consumer pays the bill on the back end. Congress and monopolies get you coming and going. And Congress wonders why job growth is sluggish? Any person in the real world would see that this set up is unfair, illogical, and bad for small business. Why hasn’t the 17-year incumbent done something about it?
Marisa said: “It is time to stop corporate socialism. My second idea is a solution that is not only fair, but will also have a tremendously positive impact on job creation and our economy. It will unlock the potential of small business and Main Street. Let’s cut all corporate subsidies to fuel job growth and grow Main Street!”
