The most critical issue our nation faces is the irresponsible spending by our government and the out-of-control debt it has created. Our federal budget has been so poorly managed during the past few decades that now our country’s unhealthy fiscal situation impacts everything else government, businesses, and individuals do. Everyone inherently knows that one cannot continue to spend more than one makes – what is true for our personal home budgets is true for our nation. Attempting to spend ourselves into prosperity is akin to standing in a bucket and trying to lift ourselves up by the handle.
I will work to prioritize spending with an eye on meeting our obligations, making strategic investments in small business growth, and providing assistance to those who truly need it. Then I will quickly move to cut our nation’s spending through a return to the core Constitutional duties of the federal government.
