Hurt will assume a seat on the Financial Services committee, where he:
"...look[s] forward to representing the interests of Central and Southside Virginians on the Committee. The Committee will be addressing issues that will impact tax payers, businesses, financial institutions, and job creation in the 5th District. I am committed to supporting policies that will increase access to capital for small business and individuals, reduce the regulatory burden on Main Street banks, protect taxpayers by reforming Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and lead to aggressive oversight of the Regulatory Reform bill. "
Although Hurt calls for "limited" government, his policies do not advocate this view. I will note again that Hurt did not mention the Constitution ONE TIME during the campaign except to express his support of Amendment II in a "sportsman's right" fashion.
He will prove to be a poor choice.
