"Legislative policy should not be about politics or political parties, but about lives. As a teacher and former small business owner who grew up in Custer County, I've served in the Idaho legislature standing up to budget cuts that increased sizes and eliminated thousands of jobs. I'd be honored to be your Congresswoman, to finally put Idahoans back to work, support fair pay for women and protect medicare and social security." – Former Idaho State Senator Nicole LeFavour.
WHERE DO YOU VOTE? http://www.idahovotes.gov/YourPollingPlace/WhereDoIVote.aspx
THE ECONOMY • Our nation’s job creators are not millionaires or large corporations but small businesses and regular working people. Americans create jobs when they can participate fully in the economy, when they can afford to replace a broken washing machine, buy clothes for their children, fix the car, eat out at a restaurant or afford a home or college degree.
JOBS • I am dedicated to restoring jobs, not cutting thousands more with repeated budget cuts. Our economy and small businesses will never recover if Congress continues eliminating jobs more quickly than America's businesses can create them.
FAIRNESS • In the Idaho legislature I worked hard to lower property taxes for Idaho seniors to keep them secure in their homes. I also successfully stopped bills that shifted taxes from large profitable industries onto Idaho's small businesses and families.
FINANCIAL CRISIS • Congressman Simpson voted again and again to loosen the federal banking regulations that led to our nation’s financial crisis. Sadly he also voted to add $700 billion to the deficit to bail out banks without providing requirement that they help small businesses struggling to get loans to create jobs in our communities.
SECURITY FOR AMERICA's SENIORS • We promise every American who spends a lifetime paying into social security that they will retain financial independence and not be forced to live in fear as they reach retirement. I am dedicated to preserving and strengthening Medicare and Social Security. Sadly, Mike Simpson voted twice for the Ryan Budget Plan which privatizes Medicare, turning it into a voucher system where Seniors will be forced to buy private insurance and no longer have the security of the Nation's Medicare health coverage system.
