Dave Camp decides not to run for US Senate

August 23, 2013

United States Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI), Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement on the U.S. Michigan Senate race.
“Over the past few months, I have received a lot of encouragement to run for the United States Senate. I have greatly appreciated and am deeply humbled by those calls and conversations. After much thought and careful consideration, I have decided not to run for the United States Senate. I will continue to put my full focus and effort on serving my constituents in mid- and northern-Michigan as their Representative and as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. That includes creating a stronger economy by making the tax code more effective and efficient; opening new markets for American goods and services; and, critical oversight of ObamaCare and the IRS.”

    Dave Camp may be regarded as a great republican; perhaps even the pick if the litter. BUT his service as chairman of the Ways and Means committee leaves great question as to his commitment to American and her citizens. Specifically, his continual squelching of the FairTax Act, a proposal to replace the income tax with a national sales tax and rid America of the dreaded, God-forsaken IRS. It was 1st introduced to the Ways & Means committee over 10 years ago and has never even been considered! Shame on him and the entire Ways and Means committee.
