Economy / Jobs
The economy and job creation consistently ranks as one of the most important issues I hear about from constituents. People are frustrated, and rightly so, because the rules and regulations handed down from Washington increase costs for business owners and consumers, hinder job growth, and stifle investment. You cannot tax, spend, and borrow your way to a healthy economy. As a member of the House Small Business Committee, I am consistently working towards the ultimate goal of getting Washington out of the way and creating an environment where businesses can hire more employees and provide economic opportunity in their region.
