Issue Position: Fiscal Responsibility

Issue Position


Our national debt is over $13 trillion-- this is simply unacceptable. Just like Hoosier families must make decisions about what to buy and how to save, I believe our government needs to make the same kind of disciplined decisions and live within its means.

Since coming to Congress, I've voted to cut over $200 billion in new federal spending. And as your congressman, I will continue to work to restore a fiscally responsible government by eliminating wasteful spending and supporting common-sense, Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) budget enforcement. That is why I support an amendment to the Constitution that would require a balanced budget and I have voted to pass PAYGO legislation, which is designed to make sure that we pay for our priorities by finding savings elsewhere in the budget.

Furthermore, I support responsible efforts to promote tax relief and keep our economy healthy by helping small businesses and middle-class families. In Congress, I supported legislation that provides direct tax relief to 95 percent of working families in the United States. I have also supported tax relief for small businesses and family farmers to encourage investment in the equipment and resources they need to remain competitive in today's global economy.
