As we watch Democrats preside over the massive expansion of government in Washington and the explosion of deficit and the national debt, Matt believes that the growth of government at all levels should be limited. Matt Gaetz is a fiscal conservative who understands government must live within it means. Matt knows that there is never a good time to raise taxes, especially during tough economic times. Not only will Matt Gaetz fight any tax increases, he will lead the fight just like he did against the "pet tax" in Okaloosa County and the property tax increase proposed by the Fort Walton Beach City Council.
Matt Gaetz will make sure that Tallahassee balances the budget without raising taxes and supports limiting the growth of local governments to no more than the rate of inflation.
