• I believe that Congress has a responsibility to the American people to rein in wasteful and excessive spending. Currently, the national debt is more than $33 trillion. High debt means a future of high interest, high inflation, and low jobs. We cannot sustain this path.
  • My generation elected the officials who made the decisions to excessively spend and borrow.  My generation received whatever benefits were had from all the spending. Therefore, my generation of political leaders has an obligation to solve the nation’s debt problem and not simply pass the burden onto our children and grandchildren.


  • Supports a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, which would control spending by prohibiting the Federal Government from spending more than it receives in revenues. Virginia and many other states already operate under similar guidelines.
  • Led an effort to change the rules of the House of Representatives to give Members of the House the ability to offer amendments on the floor to cut the amount of money an agency could receive, the number of employees the U.S. government or its agencies could have, and the amount of money that could be paid to an employee of the U.S. government. It is impossible to get serious about cutting spending and setting priorities in Washington when our own rules prevent us from doing so. This rule was passed for both years of the 115th Congress and in January 2023, at the start of the 118th Congress.
