Budget and Spending
I am gravely concerned by Washington’s out-of-control spending and borrowing which is harming our economy today and threatening the future of the American Dream.
Under President Obama our national debt nearly doubled to $20 trillion. This mountain of debt is one of the main reasons our economic recovery has been so sluggish.
Since Republicans took control of the House in 2011, spending has fallen by the largest amount in decades and the annual deficit has been cut in half. However, in 2016 the annual deficit began to rise once again. This is unacceptable.
To put our fiscal house in order, I support significant, across-the-board cuts to federal spending. I also support a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
We must act urgently to protect our children’s future and make sure they do not become heirs to a bankrupt nation.
