Creating jobs and growing the economy

As a recovering governor, I believe that one of the most important roles of government is to create a nurturing environment for job creation and job preservation. How do we do that?

We need to invest in a world-class workforce by making our schools second to none. We need to facilitate commerce with a bold infrastructure plan that would rebuild and maintain our roads, highways, bridges and transit systems, while making key investments that reduce congestion and make it easier for goods and people to travel across this great land.

We need to pursue every opportunity to export American goods by breaking down trade barriers and helping our farmers and manufacturers reach new markets across the globe. And we need to reform our tax code to spark innovation and encourage businesses to expand and create good-paying jobs here in the United States. If we do these things, we will see fortunes rise and communities thrive in every corner of our country.
