Economy and Jobs
As a former small business owner I understand firsthand the importance of small businesses to our economy. The government must get out of the way so American workers, families and entrepreneurs can thrive.
Washington has limited job creators with regulations and irresponsible fiscal policies that have weakened our economy, slowed innovation and decreased job opportunities.
With our nation nearly $20 trillion dollars in debt, it is time to find innovative solutions to help balance our budget. We must tackle the fiscal challenges facing our country on every level in order to give future generations a chance for economic prosperity.
In Congress I have introduced legislation aimed to reduce the federal debt and make more responsible spending decisions at all levels of government. Rest assured I will continue to help restore America's middle class and challenge policies that stand in the way of giving Americans the best opportunities for economic success.
