FLORENCE, Kentucky – Retired Campbell County Judge Executive and author of the REINS Act, Lloyd Rogers, has endorsed Thomas Massie for Congress in Kentucky’s 4th District. The following is a statement released by Judge Rogers:
Why would anyone vote for Thomas Massie for U.S. Congress?
Could it be he will address the national debt? Could it be he will work for a balanced budget amendment? Maybe it is because of his strong belief in the Second Amendment. Businesses like his stand on reducing regulations that hurt the business climate.
I’m the author of the REINS Act introduced by my current congressman, Geoff Davis. I’m very concerned about government overspending and so is Thomas Massie. I personally like his pro-life and family commitment. Most Kentuckians support his stand against confiscatory taxes and stopping the stupid spending by the federal government. When he votes in Congress, sending our money to foreign counties will be a no-no.
Most politicians are like snakes. They shed their skins when they get in Congress and voters really get to see who they are. Thomas Massie is cut from the same cloth as Sen. Rand Paul in that what you see now is what you will get when he gets to Washington.
Thomas Massie believes veterans, the defenders of our freedoms, should be better provided for and not forgotten. He does not want our military cut in light of the turmoil in the Middle East.
These are but a few of the reasons why Kentuckians will never be sorry they elected Thomas Massie.
