While Republicans have been the true party of tax-and-spend, I have been focused on tax relief for middle-income families. I voted for the largest middle class tax cut in history and wrote the law in 2008 that provides property tax relief to homeowners who do not currently itemize on their taxes. I will also fight those who think we need to give tax cuts to the wealthiest 1% of all Americans. The theory of trickle-down economics was disproved long ago. It doesn't work and I will fight against those who try to reinstate it as government policy.
