Country before Party

Robert's Positions

Robert Tager offers a fresh alternative to the past decade of ineffective leadership in the 12th Congressional District. More issues positions.

“My positions are very simple and crafted through common sense:

     Country must always come before party in policy considerations.

   What is good for the middle class and working class is also good for America.

While the Republican leadership has been working for corporations and the wealthy elite and the Democratic leadership has been busy working for the poor and minorities, we in the middle have been ignored and financially squeezed.

Let me be very clear, corporations and the super rich do not care about us, our success, or failures. They want us to buy their products and give them our money. We have heard from Republican leadership for decades, ‘give them tax breaks and they will create jobs.’ Do you want to know why corporations and the top two percent are richer now and we in the middle are struggling? It’s because they got their tax breaks, and we got the shaft. They now own over 60 percent of our nation’s wealth and they aren't about to ‘trickle it down’ through jobs or higher wages.  They would rather export jobs, put us out of work, and grow their own profit margins at our expense
