STAND TALL SENATOR JIM BUNNING
Bunning Pitches a Perfect Game

ELKTON —Kentucky GOP U.S. Senate Candidate Bill Johnson today issued the following statement regarding Jim Bunning’s decision to block further deficit spending.

“I support Senator Jim Bunning. Frankly, unemployment benefits are currently 99 weeks or almost two years. While I support extending the benefits for a short period of time longer, we must find a way to pay for those benefits. I do not support extending unemployment benefits beyond two years.

“Even Germany limits unemployment benefits to one year. Benefits here in America are exceeding those offered in the most liberal countries of Europe. Two years of government support is not a safety net. It is an entitlement program. I am tired of paying for entitlement programs that continue well beyond a compassionate need.

“I am unemployed having refused a company move to Houston, Texas. I am on Cobra, spending my savings (to live and campaign), but still standing confidently in my abilities. I don’t want government help and I have not taken unemployment benefits. I want the government out of my way so the economy will recover.

“Getting rid of the Department of Education would free up $45 billion per year. Getting rid of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would free up $10.5 billion per year. It is time to draw the line. Stand tall Senator Bunning. You are pitching a perfect game.”

Bill Johnson just made more of a statement here than many people will realize, I fear.

Not only does he support Senator Bunning, and rightly so, he also supports all Kentuckians. The every-day-folks, just like himself, need a hand UP - not a hand OUT!

How refreshing to see a political candidate who respects the hard work and dedication of the American worker.

I just got off the phone with Senator Bunning's field office rep. and he told me the calls have been non-stop since Senator Bunning voted. Many of the," gimme crowd", are very angry that he voted against this extension; what they fail to realize is we need jobs here in Kentucky and an extension will NOT create new Jobs only more dependency on the government and some day someone will have to pay the piper in higher taxes.

Stand on principle, Senator. Bill Johnson is with you and not for a photo op like his opponants.
Johnson is the sole candidate to share your social and economic values.
See you tomorrow, Geketa!

Bill Johnson is more akin to Bunning in all ways! Both are Hall of Famers, one in baseball and one in war.
Neither will walk away from a fight.

Corps,
If we as a nation don't get back to principles we are doomed! Don't forget to bring your loudest voice and your signs. :)
