Fiscal Restraint While the Federal Government needs to spend on some things, it ought to be frugal with your hard-earned tax dollars. It was nice to be recognized in a recent Blaze TV story and Washington Examiner article as one of the few Members of Congress whose votes in the 115th Congress (2017-18) would have resulted in a net spending cut.
