Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2014

The nation's debt has surpassed a staggering $17 trillion. This deficit is a result of irresponsible spending in Washington and tax increases are not the solution. We need to control our spending and create a budget that reflects our means just as taxpayers do in their own families. I pledge to vote against tax increases and I am proud to have signed the Americans for Tax Reform Pledge. I am dedicated to creating responsible spending an reducing taxpayer burdens.
