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

My top budget priority in the Senate 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 that limits total spending and requires super-majority votes to raise taxes.

Voting for more transparency and oversight of federal spending.

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

Reforming our entitlement programs to curb the unsustainable growth and to ensure that important programs can remain viable in the future.
