U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore blasted his opponent, Doug Jones for supporting “Bernie Sanders style economics” that the Moore campaign claimed, “would crush small businesses, stifle the free market, and make it harder for everyday Alabamians to put food on the table.”

“Small businesses account for around two-thirds of American jobs,” Moore said. “Alabama business owners and entrepreneurs work hard every day to provide quality products, services, and jobs to our communities and they deserve to reap all of the benefits of a free market that is unencumbered by the burdens of the federal government. As your next United States Senator, I will work hard to roll back unnecessary government regulations, remove tax rules that punish small business owners, and join the President in promoting economic policies that put the needs of the American people first.”
