Jackie believes Washington is broken. While Congress has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on so called stimulus, the unemployment rate in North Central Indiana continues to remain in double digits. Jackie believes that Congress needs to create a pro-growth economic environment that will create jobs. To do this, we need to lower taxes on our small businesses. Currently, American businesses face the second highest tax rates in the industrialized world. If we allow businesses to keep more of their hard earned money, they will do what they do best, create jobs and strengthen our economy. Jackie fought for lower taxes in the legislature in Indianapolis, and she'll continue to fight for them in Washington.
Small businesses continue to see their health care costs increase year after year, making it difficult for them to create jobs. Jackie believes we need to repeal the trillion dollar government takeover of health care and replace it with reforms that will actually lower the cost of health care while improving quality.
