Budget

As leaders, we must ensure that our nation’s finances are balanced and that federal spending is sensible. Our government is most effective when it has a budget in place that minds the deficit and eliminates sequestration, but also funds critical programs. We need to address the national debt by cutting wasteful spending, boosting tax revenue and investing in programs that promote growth and create jobs.

I am working with my colleagues to achieve a responsible budget that properly funds national defense, provides more resources to heal our veterans and puts people back to work as we rebuild and strengthen our infrastructure.
