Government does not create jobs – but it can create a stable economic climate. The government must encourage its business owners and entrepreneurs by keeping taxes low, maintaining fiscal discipline and providing a diversified workforce. It must reduce regulations and cut red tape so businesses – from mom and pops to corporations – can grow and create jobs.
Limiting Size and Scope of Government
No matter what level of government, it must be limited in size and scope and embrace fiscal responsibility. We must prioritize spending and make sure we focus on government’s core functions: freedom, public safety, infrastructure, transportation and education. I will work to identify and cut wasteful spending so the government lives within its means and elected officials are better stewards of your tax dollars.
Helping Students Succeed
Too often, bureaucracy in the education system robs both the educator and the student from accomplishing their goals. The government must focus its spending on things that will produce the best results in the classroom and be accountable for those results. The keys to success are parental involvement, excellent teachers and disciplined classrooms.

America has the best health care in the world. It is health insurance that needs reform. The free market – more choices and more freedom – is the answer; not a universal system that will result in the government controlling our health choices.
