Economy and Jobs
Across the 2nd District and our nation, the economy and jobs remain the top concern for American families. Washington created an environment of high taxes, overregulation, and crippling debt that has sidelined capital and hurt job creation throughout our economy. As I talk to families and small businesses throughout the 2nd district, I often hear that it is Washington that keeps our economy from reaching its full potential. We are never going to be able to tax, borrow, and spend our way to a strong economy – it is American business and entrepreneurs that make our economy grow. I will always remain committed to keeping taxes low for hardworking families and getting government out of the way so that Americans can do what they do best, work hard and innovate in pursuit of their dreams.
