Senator Kyrillos Statement Launching Federal Exploratory Committee


America is in trouble. We have a massive debt hanging over us, a tax and regulatory burden stifling job creation and innovation, and a government we can no longer afford but cannot seem to rein in. There is a growing sense that our children’s future prosperity is slipping away.

It is time to prove again what a free and enterprising people are capable of doing. I know we can reverse the precipitous course America is on because we are doing it here in New Jersey today. I have been proud to stand with the Governor to motivate conservative reforms that will make our state stronger and more competitive. We need the same honest, tough-love approach in Washington.

I have formed an exploratory committee to seek out ways to help our great country which may include running for the United States Senate. As the son and grandson of immigrants who moved to this country in search of freedom and opportunity, I know and believe in the power of the American dream. And as a father with a young family, I also know we must put our country back on the path to future strength and opportunity. In the months ahead, I look forward to traveling the state to learn and discuss how we can work together to put America back on track.

    Strike 1, portraying himself as a conservative; when in fact; he is not

    NJ Senator Kyrillos should focus on solutions for his home state’s mid to long term economic problems, immediate financial problems–health care, pensions, budget deficits — and innovative 21st century job creation. He is member of the NJ legislative leadership that has created “the massive [state] debt hanging over us”. He supported Govenor Whitman when she raided pension funds that, with the willing help of Democrats, has lead to the massive debt that is choking NJ residential and commercial taxpayers. If anything he has helped smother the American dream for NJ citizens. Where is the evidence that he has helped lead when it comes to reversing the “precipitious course” we are on in NJ? What specific reforms has he helped motivate? Trying to frame what he intends to do in the future by using the ‘ shining knight who has rescued the people before and can do it again’ narrative only points to the fact that he has done nothing for NJ that warrants a chance to do the same in the US Senate.
