Delivering the Weekly Republican Address, small businessman and Congressional candidate Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) discusses the impact that red tape has on his plumbing business, which spends 40 cents of every dollar it takes in on complying with regulations. Mullin, who is running to represent the Second Congressional District in eastern Oklahoma, also touts the House-passed REINS Act as one way to curb excessive regulations and free up small businesses to help grow the economy and bring jobs home.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) today announced that Oklahoma small businessman and rancher Markwayne Mullin will deliver the Weekly Republican Address on Saturday, October 13.
“Small businesses continue to struggle in this weak economy, and all the taxing, spending and red tape coming from the Obama administration is only making things worse,” Speaker Boehner said. “Markwayne Mullin has run a business and created jobs, and he understands the need to shut down the jobs-destroying red tape factory in Washington, DC. I’m looking forward to hearing Markwayne’s address, and, if elected, I know he’ll be a strong voice in the House for a smaller, more accountable, and less costly government.”
Today, the Mullin for Congress Campaign received the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business. The NFIB is a non-partisan organization with affiliates in all 50 states, dedicated to advancing policies that foster growth among small businesses.
Markwayne Mullin is an eastern Oklahoma native, successful businessman, rancher, family man and youth leader in his church. The youngest of seven children, he was raised in the small Adair County town of Westville, Oklahoma.
