Buddy Roemer will be on The Angel Clark Show on Radio Freedom on December 14, 2011!
Buddy is the only candidate with executive, legislative, and private sector experience
Governor Roemer served four terms in the United States Congress from 1981 – 1988 as a conservative Democrat who often broke ranks with his party to vote with President Reagan, and was Louisiana Governor from 1988-1992 as both a Democrat and Republican.
During his tenure in the Governor’s office, unemployment in the state dropped by approximately half, the state budget was balanced all years despite inheriting a huge deficit, teacher pay was linked to performance, education accountability standards were enacted, government unions were challenged, and sweeping campaign finance reform legislation was passed.
Since leaving public office, Governor Roemer has been involved in a number of business ventures. Most recently, he served as the founder, CEO, and President of Business First Bank, a small business community bank with approximately $650 million in assets that took no bailout money from the federal government.
Governor Roemer lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with his wife Scarlett, and is the father of three children. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College and his M.B.A. from Harvard Business School
Also joining us is Dan O’Connor!
Dan O’Connor understands economics
Dan O’Connor saw the economic collapse coming and has warned against Washington DC policies which have only prolonged the economic misery. The politicians in DC did not see the economic collapse coming and afterwards, they responded by approving of trillions of dollars to be given to their friends in the large banks, corporations and businesses that keep them in office.
Dan O’Connor was born in NYC and attended elementary school in Brooklyn. While studying business at Rutgers University, Dan developed a strong understanding for the way that the economy works. Later on, he studied economics intensively while pursuing a master’s degree in International Relations at a program established through The United Nations and Seton Hall University. After graduating Dan moved to Asia where he mastered the Chinese language and studied economics even further at Johns Hopkins University in Nanjing, China. Mr. O’Connor lived in Greater China for 6 years and spent the tail end of his time abroad working for an economic think tank in Hong Kong.
Returning to the U.S. at the end of 2009, Dan sought out a career in Green Energy in Manhattan, where he has been working ever since.
Over the years, Dan has written extensively on subjects related to economics and the corrupt relationship between businesses and government which have brought our economy to the awful stage that currently exists. Unfortunately, the economy is showing no signs of recovery.
Most of the politicians in DC have no training in economics and no respect for the US Constitution and the rule of law. They are more concerned with getting re-elected and pleasing their corporate sponsors. It’s time to bring fresh faces to Washington DC who are not in bed with the the big banks and corporations and understand how to get the economy back on track again!
