"Families are tightening their belt and so must the government. I believe that government should live within its means. I'm committed to reducing the deficit and balancing the budget so that future generations of Americans do not end up paying the price. My office will lead by example and post any funding request directly on our website. We must also crack-down on wasteful government spending because leaders should manage tax-payer dollars with the same prudence that a responsible parent would manage his family's budget."
