SCOTT BRUUN FOR U.S. CONGRESS
A TIRELESS AND INDEPENDENT VOICE FOR OREGON
JOBS & ECONOMIC GROWTH
Scott will work to create a better environment for privatesector job creation. Scott will empower American families, workers, small businesses and job creators by lowering and simplifying taxes, reducing regulatory red-tape, and expanding opportunities for Oregon’s agriculture, forest product and trade sectors.
“Scott Bruun understands the issues facing Oregon farmers, foresters, and natural resource workers. He’ll be a strong advocate for private-sector job creation and strengthening Oregon’s economy.”
Barry Bushue, Oregon Farm Bureau Federation
Scott will work to reduce spending and balance the budget. He will work for deficit reduction by fighting out of control spending and special interest earmarks that have become hallmarks of Congress.
“We can count on Scott Bruun to be a voice of fiscal restraint and economic renewal.”
Jason Williams, Oregon Taxpayers Association
FREE-MARKET HEALTH CARE SOLUTIONS
Scott will support free-market reforms that lower health care costs, allow people to purchase coverage across state lines and expand access to quality care. Scott staunchly opposes efforts to nationalize health care and supports reform efforts to stop frivolous lawsuits.
Scott will work to reduce dependence on foreign oil by supporting American-based alternatives. Scott supports common sense conservation, but opposes national ‘Cap & Trade’ legislation, which would increase energy costs for families while exporting millions of our jobs.
