NASHVILLE, Tenn.--The Tennessee Republican Party released the following statement from Chairman Ryan Haynes to mark the celebration of Labor Day:
Whether it was the abolitionist movement that gave us our start, the Civil Rights movement that we aided, or the pro-life movement that we're leading, the common theme throughout the history of the Republican Party has been a belief in the inherent dignity of every human being. We believe, and fight for, unlimited opportunity for all. That is the foundation for the American Dream.
Unfortunately, in the last seven years, that dream has grown harder to achieve. Income inequality has been exacerbated and government has grown into uncharted territories, not to help our working individuals, but to stifle them. Visions of prosperity for busy families have been replaced by dim prospects. Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner for president, would only continue these failed policies. This is not how our country should be and the American worker knows that all too well.
So we're going to continue pushing for a better America for all workers, whether they're in the factory, field, offices, or schools across the land. Safer streets in our communities, access to a quality education, and the ability to find a good job are our aims, on Labor Day, and every day. This nation is brimming with potential and more government is not the solution to unleashing that--the innovation and ingenuity of the American worker is.
