Based on his perspective as a businessman, U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) highlighted how excessive debt, spending, and overregulation in Washington is impeding economic growth and how pro-growth tax reform—combined with a long-term plan to restore solvency to Social Security and Medicare—would cause our economy to take off. Senator Corker also emphasized the importance of embracing free enterprise so future generations will have ample opportunities for success.
Formerly Tennessee’s Commissioner of Finance and Mayor of Chattanooga, Senator Corker was elected to the United States Senate in 2006. He is a member of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, and Ranking Member of the Special Committee on Aging.
