US Chamber Endorsement Tour Press Coverage

Zinga backs tax cuts to spur jobs

Andrea Zinga says the federal government needs to reduce or keep taxes low to promote jobs and economic prosperity. During a news conference in Quincy this morning, Zinga accepted the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and outlined her vision of being pro-jobs and pro-business. Zinga is the Republican nominee for the 17th District House seat held by U.S. Rep. Lane Evans, D-Rock Island.

"Three presidents in my lifetime have cut taxes — Kennedy, Reagan, and of course, Bush," Zinga said. "And when they cut taxes ... that got the economy humming."
Three major legislative goals are supported by Zinga and the chamber. She wants to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, eliminate the inheritance tax, and put a cap on medical malpractice awards and other monetary judgments.

Melanie Bassett of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said Zinga is on the right side of several important issues for business. She said Zinga would support business if elected to Congress.

Glen Bemis of Sisbro Inc. hosted the news conference and said trucking firms such as his know how much damage can be done by bad legislation. Illinois lawmakers increased taxes and fees on truckers in 2003 and have driven many truckers out of the state.

"Under Rod Blagojevich, ... the trucking industry is one of the hardest hit in the state," Zinga said.
Zinga will face Democrat nominee Phil Hare in the November election.
