Congress is entrusted with ensuring that our tax dollars are spent responsibly. In light of our current national challenges, this role is especially important.

As a member of the Senate, my top budget priority is to establish greater fiscal disipline. To accomplish this, I support many budget reform measures, including:

Opposing massive spending bills and more government bailouts that will not stimulate economic growth.

Passing a strong balanced budget constitutional amendment.

Passing a constitutional amendment to give the President the line-item veto.

Voting for more transparency and oversight of federal spending.

Attacking government waste by consolidating duplicative programs and ending unnecessary spending.
