U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn., announced a jobs plan this morning based on getting “the government out of the way,” according to a news release.
The ideas listed in the freshman representative’s 33-page proposal include the temporary elimination of the capital gains tax, a reining-in of regulatory agencies and the utilization of domestic energy sources.
“I am proud to introduce solutions I believe will result in real job growth, not government growth,” Fleischmann said in the news release.
In recent weeks, a few local groups have accused Fleischmann of not focusing on job creation. They have said he favors tax breaks for corporations over jobs for average Americans.
