Issue Position: Bailouts

Issue Position

I would never support a federal bailout of private business. In a free enterprise economy, businesses have the opportunity to succeed, and sometimes, even the opportunity to fail. The federal government should not be in the business of picking winners and losers. Washington Millionaires have been taking your family's hard-earned tax dollars to bailout AIG, Wall Street, the auto industry, and others who take money from your family's success and gives it as a reward to those that have been irresponsible. That's the wrong message to send. It's not how a small business works, and it's not how a free market economy should work. As your United States Senator, I won't reward corrupt or bad businesses by voting for a bailout.
