Drain The Swamp Drain The Swamp

Washington, D.C. wastes far too much money on programs that either don’t work, have outlived their usefulness, or should never have existed in the first place. Members of Congress love to create programs, but they don’t spend much time checking to see if taxpayers are getting their money’s worth.  I pride myself on being a taxpayer watchdog and supporting efforts to make the federal government more efficient, effective, and accountable.

Among others, I strongly support the following policies to drain the swamp:

CUTTING TAXES: I oppose tax increases, and I fight with everything I’ve got to cut your taxes.  Politicians in Washington, D.C. far too often forget that the dollars they are spending are not theirs: they belong to you.  That means every dollar less the federal government spends is a dollar more that stays in your pocket where it belongs.

TERM LIMITS: I support term limits for politicians and have co-sponsored legislation implementing a cap of three terms for members of the House of Representatives and two terms for members of the Senate.

BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT: Every year families and small businesses across the country are forced to set and live by a budget. 46 states are required to have balanced budgets, but the federal government has no such requirement.  As a result, Congress regularly passes budgets that never balance, put us into even more debt and mortgage our children’s future.  I support and have voted in favor of a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution to fix this problem, and I’ll keep fighting to get it across the finish line!  

WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTIONS: One of the best ways we can prevent fraud and abuse in the federal government is to strengthen whistleblower protections.  Specifically, I’ve helped pass legislation to strengthen protections for whistleblowers at the Department of Veterans Affairs where far too often veteran’s receive care that is not up to par with the sacrifice they gave for our nation.

Sadly, the policies proposed by Democrats in Washington, D.C. seem designed to achieve the exact opposite: more power for them, their special interest allies and their political operatives.  Recently, they’ve sought to manipulate the federal election system to funnel taxpayer dollars into their own campaigns, turn Washington, D.C. into a state, raise taxes, spend trillions of dollars we don’t have and force their radical social agenda on all of us.  I strongly oppose their embrace of socialist policies, and I’ll do everything in my power to stop it from happening!
