The Importance of Working Together

There is no question that Congress is broken and out of touch with the working families that sent them to Washington. The Congressional approval rating in our country is at an all-time low, with a recent survey showing only 10 percent of Americans approve of the job that Congress is doing.

Imagine for a second what it would be like if average Tennesseans acted the same way Congress does.

Construction workers would show up to a job site and never pick up a hammer. They’d just stand around and yell at each other. A husband and wife would have a disagreement about something and then run to the nearest TV camera and talk about how bad the other person is, rather than sitting down with each other and finding solutions. A small business owner would take a good idea and throw it away because it came from someone with an R or a D next to their name. Our neighbors would ask which party we support before they agreed to help us move a piece of furniture, look after our house when we’re out of town, or lend us a pair of jumper cables when our car has a dead battery.

Fortunately, that’s not how Tennesseans act or live their lives. They work together. They compromise. They find solutions. Firefighters and policemen work together to keep our communities safe. Football coaches work together with their players to build a competitive team. Men and women working at businesses all across our state show up to work with a goal in mind and an objective at hand, and they get the job done.

When working families in Tennessee are able to see past personal differences to get a job done every single day, why should we expect anything less from our elected officials? I don’t think we should. There are big problems facing our country, and we don’t solve them as Democrats or Republicans, we solve them as Americans.

I’m running for Congress because I believe working families need a voice and Congress needs some common sense. It’s time we stop the fighting and start fixing.
