Listen To The 60 Minute Show
Guests Dan Benishek, Ronna Romney McDaniel, and Jim Stamas were on the show this morning on InTheRightMind on Sunny 101.9 WKQS.
Guest Dan Benishek
The first guest this morning was U.S. Representative Dan Benishek calling in this morning while heading from Traverse City north to Sault Ste. Marie.
The congressman has been on the road lately listening to the people of the district and finding out what the people need. And hearing from small businesses he’s been hearing about how there needs to be less regulations so they can prosper easier.
The problem with the regulations can be seen locally with the issue of the 595 county road. It’s been delayed because of overreach by the EPA. This is prevent jobs for the area. He has been standing up to the EPA because he’s trying to get more jobs up here in upper michigan.
Benishek believes that there can be a clean environment and more jobs added to the area. This is possible.
There has been attacks on Benishek, an example is that he is refusing to crack down on China. The attack mentions that this is from the Columbia Free Trade Bill. There is nothing about China in that bill. Benishek explained that he supported the the bi-partisan bill because it would provide more jobs in upper michigan. One company in the area will be able to sell equipment from Iron River to Columbia because of the bill. Also for farmers in Michigan, they will be able to export their product as well.
Guest Ronna Romney McDaniel
Ronna Romney McDaniel called into the show quickly today as she up in Marquette earlier this to thank and acknowledge because of the accomplishments that the Marquette Victory Center has done. The center actually made it’s 3 millionth contact this past week!
