Budget and Spending

I am a strong proponent of a balanced federal budget and an advocate for reducing the size of the federal government. To facilitate the return to balanced budgets, Congress has a number of tools at its disposal, including reducing spending, improving government efficiency, budget process reform, and promoting economic growth through tax relief.

Reckless spending is one of the biggest problems currently plaguing our federal government and has contributed to the growing budget deficit. As a fiscal conservative, I will continue to hold the line on the federal deficit by working to restrain discretionary spending. This is critical given the current state of our economy. I will do my best to ensure that Congress exercises fiscal restraint in order to achieve a balanced budget, while still allocating sufficient funding levels to meet the needs of our American communities.

As our nation and our allies continue to combat bad actors around the world that seek to do us harm, we must act wisely, and spend prudently. Fiscal discipline is the hallmark of a free society because it enables individuals to pursue their dreams without the burdensome intrusion of the federal government.
