The United States is facing a looming crisis with respect to the continuing growth of federal spending, and we in government have an obligation to ensure that our children are not stuck paying off our debt. I believe that our federal government spends too much and with very little forethought or restraint.
At a time of economic struggle, spending should be curtailed wherever possible. It is the duty of Congress to pass responsible spending bills that maintain an efficient government and target limited funds where they will do the most good in our economy.
Every day the American people face difficult choices and challenges to make sure their family budget is met. It is past time for our government to exercise the same discipline and responsible behavior families across our country have to face every day.
I will continue to be guided by my fundamental conservative principles when it comes to the issue of federal spending.
