Issue Position: Balancing the Budget the Right Way

Washington needs to get the debt under control, but they need to do it the right way. When you grow a business from one employee to twenty employees like Joyce did, you learn something about responsible budgeting.

Joyce will scour the budget to cut waste and programs that don't work, and she'll end tax breaks for millionaires and big corporations that don't need them. In these tough times, there's absolutely no reason that someone who earns $40,000 a year should be paying a greater percentage of their income in taxes than millionaires and billionaires.

In 2011, Bob Gibbs voted to slash funding for cancer research, veterans' housing programs, and early education. Joyce will take a completely different approach. She'll protect those essential programs and instead shut down loopholes that benefit oil companies making billions of dollars and corporations that ship jobs overseas in order to balance the budget responsibly, without hurting middle-class families.
