WDPAC supports Carter’s pro-business stance
(ATLANTA)— Congressional candidate Liz Carter has formally received the endorsement of the Wholesaler-Distributor Political Action Committee (WDPAC) in her campaign for the Georgia’s 4th Congressional District seat.
WDPAC is the political arm of the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW)—a Washington, DC-based trade association that is the national voice of the wholesale distribution industry. WDPAC endorses pro-business candidates supportive of the wholesale distribution industry.
WDPAC Political Director Jim Anderson said WDPAC measures candidates for federal office based on their belief in low taxes, spending and borrowing and fiscal responsibility rooted in limited government; free enterprise in which economic outcomes are driven by market forces and not by politically-motivated manipulation of markets by the federal government; and a rational regulatory environment that leaves business owners free to grow their businesses, earn profits, attract investment capital and create jobs.
Anderson said that during the current 111th Congress, U.S. Representative Hank Johnson has failed to register a “correct” vote on any issue the WDPAC has identified as a “key vote.”
“Mrs. Carter, on the other hand, has taken pro-free enterprise positions on several issues our members care about,” Anderson said. “Including extension of the tax rates enacted in 2001 and 2003, oversight of federal spending programs, ‘cap and trade’ and energy supply, and health care,” Anderson said.
The evidence of Carter’s commitment to limited government, fiscal responsibility, low taxes and free markets resulted in the WDPAC endorsement.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of WDPAC,” Liz said. “Pro-business policies are key to getting people back to work and turning around our economy. It is obvious by the lack of growth and increased unemployment that we need individuals with business experience and pro-business solutions.”
