Cutting Spending, Putting a Stop to Historic Deficits
Families and businesses in Central Washington must live within a set budget – and when times get tough we don’t fix it by spending more. Why should it be any different for the federal government?
With record levels of debt, massive stimulus spending bills, new taxes and a government takeover of health care – our nation is headed in exactly the wrong direction.
It’s time for Congress to stop spending and start listening to the American people. That means putting a stop to the reckless spending that has left our nation with the largest deficit in history.
I voted against the each and every bailout – under President Bush and President Obama. I don’t believe your taxpayer dollars should be used to implement a government takeover of our economy or to pay for the actions of Wall Street and others who made reckless decisions. And, I certainly don’t believe that billions in taxpayer dollars should be sent overseas to bailout Greece and other European nations – especially as we face record deficits and high unemployment here at home.
I said no to each stimulus spending bill.
I voted for across the board spending cuts.
I voted to repeal and defund ObamaCare and replace it with common sense solutions that will actually lower health care costs.
And, I support reforming the way Washington, DC works. I have supported a moratorium on earmarks, a Constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget each year and new tools to end wasteful spending.
