Congress must stand for fiscal discipline and reform. I am very concerned about the level of federal spending. One of my top priorities is to reduce unnecessary and wasteful federal spending. It is clear that Congress must work to achieve some balance between the costs that continue to place pressure upon mandatory spending programs and the actual effectiveness of these programs. As we advance in areas like health care, defense, and education, continual changes must be considered that ensure money is spent more efficiently and effectively.
