As Treasurer, Kate Marshall has a tried and true record of reducing spending and eliminating waste. She protected Nevadans' money through the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and even registered a large net gain for her state. In Washington -- just as she has done in Nevada -- Kate will value every dollar, institute pay as you go rules, and demand benchmarks and milestones to lower our federal deficit.
In Congress, Kate will refuse a pay raise until the budget is balanced, bottom line. She will cut subsidies to the big oil companies and banking conglomerates forcing Congress to focus on Main Street, not Wall Street.
