Virginia Foxx stands up for conservative principles

Here’s what I like about Virginia Foxx: She tells it like it is. Sure, that’s gotten her in hot water with some liberals in the news media. But I consider that a badge of honor.

At a time when too many politicians are wishy-washy wafflers, Virginia Foxx is always ready to cut to the chase and explain why our conservative ideas will work and how they can make America stronger.

So who cares if the liberals in Washington wish she’d pipe down? In my mind, if President Obama and his liberal friends are frustrated with Virginia Foxx, then she must be doing something right.

We need more people like her who aren’t afraid to stand up and make the case for smaller government and lower taxes. We need more people like Virginia Foxx who have run a small business, who’ve created jobs and who understand what it feels like to have the IRS reach for their pocketbook again and again.

I trust Virginia Foxx to get the job done because she is a fighter for her constituents and for her conservative principles. That’s why I’m voting for Virginia Foxx — and I hope you will too.
