Budget and Tax Reform

f t # e
 
As American families face financial challenges and work to balance their  checkbooks, the federal government should be doing the same.  Unfortunately, federal spending has continued to grow at an unsustainable  rate. Instead of reining in wasteful, unnecessary spending, President Obama  and the Democrat Senate have proposed increasing taxes to force the American people to pay for wildly expensive federal policies, such as  ObamaCare.

Much of the economic turmoil gripping our nation is the result of government spending beyond its means. Washington has tried unwise taxpayer funded bailouts, poorly thought-out stimulus proposals and higher taxes to pay for more reckless government spending. This has to stop! 
America needs leaders who abide by principles of sound fiscal management, not those who rush massive, wasteful legislation which excuses waste and exposes taxpayers to fraud and abuse. As a strong fiscal conservative, I will continue to oppose unnecessary federal spending and higher taxes and will support responsible long-term solutions to shrink the national debt and restore fiscal sanity to this country.
 
Washington owes the American people a responsible, balanced budget that offers a long-term solution for reining in federal spending and reforming mandatory spending to keep programs such as Medicare strong. For the first time in over a decade, Republicans in Congress have adopted a budget that would balance the budget in 10 years, fostering a healthier economy and helping create jobs. I was proud to support this budget and hope you'll visit the House Budget Committee's website to learn more about it.
