We must repeal and replace Obamacare and balance the national budget. We need to bring health care back to the states and provide consumers with information and tools to make informed choices. To balance the budget we need to do what we have done here in Wisconsin. By decreasing taxes, limiting regulations, and cutting reckless government spending we have created job growth and a prosperous economic environment. We also must protect our country by building the wall and ensuring that our borders are secure.
