Issue Position: Economy
The current administration has tried to throw many life-preservers to our flailing economy. Unfortunately they have all read, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help you." What our economy really needs is less federal debt, fewer regulations, and a stable tax structure that allows businesses to make long range decisions. We need policies that encourage businesses to create stable, long-term, private sector jobs. More taxes, regulations and government-related jobs are not the answer, and they must be held to a minimum. Mandates and subsidies have to give way to consistent and predictable federal policies that enable the private sector to get back to the job of building America.
