Budget and spending
Every Texas family must live within a budget; I don't understand why the federal government cannot do the same. To get our fiscal house in order, we must cut spending, balance the budget, pay down the debt and slash the deficit.
Throughout my time in Congress, I have fought tirelessly to protect hardworking American taxpayers. As a fiscal stalwart, I am proud to have been named a “Taxpayer Hero” by Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), a Congressional watchdog organization which rates members of the House and Senate on their effectiveness in controlling wasteful government spending.
The more the government taxes, the larger it becomes and the more it spends. Since the Sixteenth Amendment was enacted, the amendment creating federal income taxes, federal programs have grown exponentially. Washington currently has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. We must ensure that our debt does not become a burden to American families and job creators. Lowering taxes and cutting back on federal government programs is critical to protecting economic freedom and ensuring national prosperity.
