Setting Straight The Minimum Wage Debate (at least in eastern North Carolina)—Marshall Adame (D) v. Walter B. Jones, Jr. (R)

Forget the (R) and (D) after the name.  It’s what they believe that counts in eastern North Carolina.

Greenville, NC—I can’t speak for everyone else but I can attest to Marshall Adame supports a higher minimum wage for eastern North Carolinathe fact that in eastern North Carolina we have a lot of chain stores in our communities.

In and of itself, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  But, consider this: chain stores suck money out of the local economies by funneling profit back to the corporations so they can build more stores and make more money.

This creates a negative cash flow in local communities that makes it harder to sustain local economic growth.

Congress will get their cost of living increase to the tune of $2800 on January 1, 2015. 

Recently, 41 Senators (Republican) blocked a bill to increase the minimum wage.

In eastern North Carolina, Walter B. Jones, Jr.—a 20 year Walter B. Jones, Jr. incumbent, opposes a minimum wage increase.  Marshall Adame (D) running against Jones supports a federal minimum wage increase

Marshall AdameIf you live in eastern North Carolina and if your wage is the only way you have to pay your bills and get ahead in life; then it’s to your interest to vote for Marshall Adame for Congress.

Adame believes in term limits.  Most people in eastern North Carolina would agree that Congress shouldn’t be made into a career, let alone handed down from father to son like a family business.

Adame supports Israel and Israel’s right to defend itself.  Walter Jones flip-flops depending on who he’s talking with.  Jones has found favor with an anti-Israeli group.

Adame believes in sanctions against Iran and believes Iran should NOT become a nuclear power.  Jones voted against Iranian sanctions.

Adame, a born-again Christian who believes government should stay out of the Church—even if that means the Church must stay out of government. 

Adame believes in the 2nd Amendment.  He believes in the protection of that Amendment.  Adame is a retired Marine and United States Diplomatic appointee by the Bush Administration.  He served the Bush Administration under Condoleezza Rice

Adame has an economic plan to create small business incubators funded with venture capital throughout eastern North Carolina. 

It’s time to vote for someone who’s more worried about the 3rd district of North Carolina than he is about getting reelected two years from now.
