In order to keep America competitive in the 21st century, Congress needs to foster an economic climate that helps U.S. industries expand opportunities, hire new employees, and invest in research and development. This cannot happen if American businesses remain mired in regulation, litigation, and taxation.
As a key Member of the House Education and Labor Committee, I have fought back attempts to increase unnecessary regulatory burdens on business. I pushed to reform our court system and end frivolous lawsuits. And I have voted time and time again to target tax breaks toward small businesses for research and development and expansion.
It has been my experience that the most positive economic outcomes are produced when the government sets fair rules then stands aside and allows businesses the economic freedom to provide opportunities. This is the course that will keep America prosperous and job creation abundant.
