I don't believe raising the taxes and spending more money on entitlement programs will stimulate the economy. We are spending our kids and grandkids money as we do this. It has to stop. No doubt welfare was a good program for its original intent, however it has been abused and the government enables citizens to abuse it. I will push to have all welfare recipients submit to a drug test, and closer monitoring to ensure they are actively looking for work instead of just laying around at home collecting a check. If the recipients are using drugs then they will be cut off of welfare. We need TORT Reform! We need a Nationalized Fair Tax, which will do away with our complex, multi-layered tax code and replace it with a national sales tax. I will fully support small business owners and work to pass legislation and tax breaks for them.
