That is what Obama and the liberals have given America.  Their appetite for more and more government spending is threatening not only our economic future, but also the future of our children and grandchildren.

Under this Administration, our government has become radically expansive and interfered in the private marketplace.  Government should not be taking over banks, car companies, or any other businesses.  The government should NOT pick winners and losers in the private sector, but rather should let entrepreneurial spirit, innovation and the market determine success or failure.  To do otherwise discourages investment and runs counter to our nation's core value of guaranteeing the right of all to engage in the pursuit of happiness.

Now, more than ever, we need to restore fiscal responsibility to the federal government.  Unless we are committed to reducing the size and cost of government, then we will see government continue to grow out of control.

I am a committed economic conservative who believes in smaller, more efficient government that lives within its means just like you and your family do.

As your Congressman, I have fought wasteful pork barrel spending, opposed new government programs that we cannot afford, and pushed for the common sense principles of limited government and frugality.   I am proud to have led in this area by introducing numerous bills and amendments to eliminate wasteful spending and rollback needless government intervention.
