Senator David Perdue Discusses President Trump’s Economic Agenda On Bloomberg TV

“It’s high time we tell the rest of the world what’s important to American workers and American businesses”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with David Westin on Bloomberg TV’s Daybreak America about the positive impact President Trump’s agenda is having on our economy, American workers, and American businesses.

 

Accomplishing Job One: “We are already seeing growth. President Trump said job one was growing the economy. He focused on three things. First was the regulatory work. Last year, we reversed around 860 rules and regulations. Second was unleashing our energy potential. We opened up oil exploration in Alaska and addressed Waters of the U.S. and Clean Power Plan regulations. The third was tax. President Trump accomplished the three things he deemed important to grow the economy.”

Growing The Economy: “We have had two quarters of 3% growth and we’re about to have a third in my opinion. Now that we have tax in play we are going to see a continuation of this in 2018. The President has jumpstarted and grown this economy.”

Negotiating Fairer Agreements: “There are things that are problematic with NAFTA. They can be solved, and I think the President is focused on fixing those problems. We need a level playing field, and President Trump wants to have equal access to all of these markets.”

Fighting For American Interests: “President Trump is willing to take a risk to stand up for American interests. President Trump has made it clear that we know what’s important to the rest of the world because they’ve been telling us for 30 years. It’s high time we tell the rest of the world what’s important to American workers and American businesses.”

Recognizing Debt Crisis: “We’ve had four increases in the federal funds rate in the last 15 months. Even worse, over the last eight years during the Obama Administration when interest rates were fundamentally zero, they didn’t go long in our bond portfolio. The duration of most of our $20 trillion debt portfolio is under three years. So this is going to come rolling on our backs. If interest rates were at their 30-year average of about 5%, we’d be paying about $1 trillion a year in interest. That just isn’t going to happen on a $4 trillion budget. We’re in a crisis mode.”

Agenda for Monday Night’s Regular Council Meeting

July City Council Meeting

Community, News

On Monday, July 10, 2017 the City Council met to discuss this month’s agenda. At this meeting the council chose to approve a skid steer from last month’s meeting. This will be an upgrade from the current equipment and hopefully benefit the workers. Follow up with more details on this story with “Skid Steer Disagreements“.

Following the skid steer approval, the current well test in Marble Hill has been approved to change over to Whitestone. The current location doesn’t have as much water as expected. However, in Whitestone there is a considerable amount of water that should be able to save the City of Jasper a large amount of money in the future.

You may notice brown historic signs in surrounding cities in different areas, Amelia McEntyre spoke with the council to take the task of getting our own historic sign. They approved the sign and she will begin working towards one for our town.

McEntyre also discussed the location of The Pickens Arts and Cultural Alliance Cornbread Reunion. The Reunion will allow citizens come out to meet different artists and enjoy family activities.The Council approved the location, it will be held at the corner of South Main Street and East Spring Street, August 12 from 11 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

Donnie Fowler presented the council with business of purchasing a new sanitation truck also known as a garbage truck. He explained to the council that the trucks have been rode hard with 6,650 customers weekly along with one truck completely out of service. The council made the decision to keep and repair the current trucks to potentially save money in the future.

The council also approved the new Pickens County Library Board appointees, Ann Roper and Bobby Edge.

Lisa Hoyle read our finance report, which can be viewed here.
