Economy and Jobs

Through ingenuity and innovation, America’s families have reached new levels of prosperity. I believe the best way to lift people out of poverty and improve their quality of life is through a good-paying job. Free markets, entrepreneurship, and innovation, not more government, will move this country forward. Rather than placing job-killing mandates on small businesses, I support further tax reform, cutting red tape, and other policies that will grow our economy and get more Americans back to work.
