Limited government, free enterprise, and personal responsibility are the core principles that make America prosper. Bill Cassidy believes these core principles will lead to lasting economic growth.

Lower Taxes: Tax relief stimulates the economy, allowing small businesses to invest and create jobs. Bill Cassidy co-authored the Economic Recovery & Middle Class Tax Relief Act to jumpstart the economy with broad and targeted tax relief for families and small businesses.

Small Business Growth: Small business is the backbone of America's economy, creating over 60 percent of all new jobs over the past decade. Bill Cassidy supports eliminating the Death Tax, which punishes farms and family businesses by imposing significant tax penalties after the death of a family business owner. He also supports streamlining and reducing burdensome federal regulations that disproportionately affect small businesses.

Strong Infrastructure: Reliable transportation infrastructure is important to Louisiana's energy, petrochemical and agriculture industries. Strengthening Louisiana infrastructure will reduce congestion that stifles economic activity and help recruit new businesses and jobs to our region. In Congress, Bill Cassidy is working to direct resources to Louisiana's I-10/I-12 corridor.

More Domestic Energy: Increasing American energy production creates jobs, lowers gas and electricity prices, and reduces America's dependence on foreign sources of energy. Bill Cassidy supports the No-Cost Stimulus Act, which will repeal restrictions on domestic energy production to create an estimated 2 million jobs and increase America's economic output by $10 trillion.
