Bosse Keeps $30 Billion Promise

Conservative Candidate Shows Unmatched Commitment to Cutting Spending

(Concord) Republican Congressional candidate Grant Bosse today completed his groundbreaking “50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending” Initiative, calling for the elimination of the Advanced Technology Program. Over the past 50 days, Bosse has proposed a cut in federal spending every day, showing a commitment to fiscal discipline unmatched by his rivals. Overall, Bosse has proposed over $30 billion in annual savings for taxpayers.

“In the Republican Primary, three candidates are asking voters to trust them to cut federal spending if they get elected. I’m the only candidate willing to tell voters where I would do it,” Bosse said. “If we want to rebuild the Taxpayer Majority upon which the Republican Party is based, we need to give voters more than empty promises.”

The Advanced Technology Program is a poster child for corporate welfare in Congress. It provides $139 million each year in taxpayer subsidies for companies to bring new products to market. After receiving federal money, these companies then profit from their new products, but do not refund taxpayers for their investment. Bosse has made such corporate giveaways a target of his “50 Days, 50 Ways” Initiative, along with pork-barrel projects and federal programs that can not show any results.

“Voters get to choose the direction of the Republican Party at the polls when they pick the candidate to take on Paul Hodes in November,” Bosse concluded. “We can stick with earmarks and empty promises, or we can make a real commitment to cutting federal spending. I’m the only candidate who can be trusted to cut spending in Washington.”

"50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending" proposed a grand total of $30,106,500,000 in taxpayer savings by eliminating unnecessary federal programs. Bosse's opponents combined to offer $0 in taxpayer savings. To learn more about Bosse’s aggressive grassroots campaign, go to
