Cowan wants to break logjam

 

You’ve heard the term “job creator” bandied about a lot. Rich Cowan, who is running for Congress, is a real job creator. In 1990, he mortgaged his house, attracted other investors and started the company North by Northwest Productions, which has produced over 40 feature films and now has five divisions. He has brought millions of dollars and hundreds of good jobs to the region.

Have the millionaires and billionaires been taking advantage of the healthy tax breaks they have been receiving since 2002? Have they taken advantage of the near zero interest rates to build new American factories with American jobs? Sadly, we know the answer to that. In fact, companies have received benefits to move jobs overseas. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers wants to give the super rich even bigger tax breaks.

Rich Cowan doesn’t want to become part of the Beltway culture, or be a slave to the party line. Isn’t it time to send someone to the other Washington who wants to break the obstructionist logjam and do something positive for the majority of the people of the 5th Congressional District?

Please vote for Rich Cowan in November.
