The Federal Budget
The Federal Budget issues affect us all and how they are dealt with is important to my work in Congress
Today, our nation faces a growing budget deficit due to out of control federal spending. I absolutely believe that a balanced federal budget is crucial to a healthy economy, and I remain an active and dedicated member of the fiscally conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC). In a few short years, baby boomers, the most productive generation in the history of the world, will begin to retire. Mandatory spending in the federal budget is on a trajectory to be over 100% of projected revenues. Dramatically slowing the rate of federal spending growth, easing the regulatory and tax burden on productivity in this country, and eliminating government waste are all critical if we are to balance this federal budget monster and return this nation to consistent economic prosperity. I am deeply committed to that endeavor.
