I am a strong advocate for the taxpayer and have continuously worked to lower taxes for families and small businesses.
In recent years, Washington has created an unprecedented level of uncertainty that is stifling businesses. Washington must do more to ensure the job creators in our economy have the certainty necessary to get off the sidelines and invest, create jobs and help us spur economic growth in this nation.
The National Taxpayer Union, a nonpartisan citizen group, has consistently awarded me with the "Taxpayers' Friend Award." This award is presented to Members of Congress who receive an "A' grade in NTU's annual rating. The rating is based on an accumulation of every roll call vote affecting fiscal policy, which includes federal spending, taxes, debt and regulations.
I will continue to work to provide meaningful tax relief and reigning in out-of-control government spending.
