Taxes & Spending
Taxes and federal spending are out of control. It has been far too long, regardless of who occupies the Oval Office or which party controls Congress, since meaningful restraints to our budget have been enacted. Since taking the Oath of Office on behalf of the people of Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District, I have sponsored and cosponsored legislation that cuts the federal government’s frivolous spending practices on duplicative programs and initiatives which are better left to the states. With our national debt exceeding $17 trillion and total debt well over $59 trillion, Congress is not doing what it takes to pay down those debts and balance the budget. It is unacceptable and irresponsible.
The federal government has not demonstrated to the American people that it can spend tax dollars in a responsible and sustainable way. My ongoing battle will remain to find ways to lower taxes and reign-in out of control government spending. I will continue to fight to lower taxes so you can keep more of your hard-earned money and join my colleagues on proposals to lower the individual and corporate tax rates and lower the burden of federal taxation.
With the United States facing an astonishing $18 trillion debt, we must continue to advocate and put in place common sense policies that work to lower the debt, not increase it. As a Member of Congress, I have voted to balance the budget and am continuously working to ensure that the U.S. economy is competitive in the world market for years to come. We can no longer mortgage the future of our country to pay for the wasteful programs of today.
