I have always been a strong supporter of cutting wasteful government spending and making sure that our precious taxpayer dollars are used wisely.
To protect and secure Social Security, pay down the national debt and promote a strong national defense, Congress must balance the need for valuable programs with the need for fiscal responsibility. We can’t afford to continue spending more money than we have.
I also believe that it is necessary to balance the budget without increasing taxes. Tax increases would hurt the District’s job creators and hard-working families whose finances are already stretched thin.
Rather than raising taxes, I will continue to look for ways to get government spending under control and once again balance the federal budget.
