Economy and Jobs
Job creation is my top priority. The formula for job creation includes a strong education system that empowers a skilled workforce and a common sense tax and regulatory environment that gets Washington out of the way of small businesses so they can do what they do best - hire people and make a positive impact on our community. Working with President Donald Trump, we were successful in getting the most comprehensive tax reform in over 30 years signed into law. We have seen incredible results in more jobs, higher wages and more money in your pocket. Because we doubled the standard deduction and lowered tax rates, 90% of Americans saw bigger paychecks. Our new opportunity zones will help boost struggling rural areas and inner cities alike. And we overhauled our career and technical education system so our workers have the skills for long-lasting careers.
Continuing to foster this pro-growth environment will continue to unleash the potential of American workers and will create incredible opportunities for individuals and small businesses to succeed.
We must also restore fiscal sanity to Washington. Years of reckless spending has led our country into a dire economic situation overtaken by mountains of debt. I’m committed to working with my House colleagues to find common-sense solutions to halt the wasteful spending, make middle class tax cuts permanent, and dramatically decrease the size of government.
It is immoral for us to borrow from others to pay for things we don’t need and can’t afford. It is certainly not an American value to force tough economic choices onto future generations. We have tough choices ahead. As your elected representative, I am committed to prioritizing spending and getting us back on the right track to an economic recovery. Our children and grandchildren are counting on us to get this country back on the right track.
