One evening 20 years ago, my husband and I dreamed of starting our own business. Through hard work, dedication, and commitment, we were able to grow a successful business that created jobs in our community. Unfortunately, over the last several years, our federal government has created an environment that would make starting that business nearly impossible today. By supporting harmful regulatory policies like Obamacare, our federal government is robbing the next generation of entrepreneurs the opportunity to take risks, grow a business, and be successful.
Hard-working Americans deserve a federal government that knows how to live within its means, not one that spends, borrows, and inflates its way to insolvency. The government’s role should be to secure a free-market, pro-growth environment where businesses and entrepreneurs have the certainty to invest, innovate, grow, and create jobs.
The problem is real. The federal government is $17 trillion in the hole. We arrived at this debt by operating at a loss, like the $680 billion deficit the federal government ran up in 2013.
But the solution is simple. We need to operate the federal government like we would a business or like we manage our households. We must live within our means and spend the money we have, without borrowing today to mortgage our future away.
I will tackle this debt problem head on by supporting a Balanced Budget Amendment—one that doesn’t raise taxes or increase spending—to restore fiscal sanity to Washington.
Georgia’s 11th District needs a leader that knows how to balance a budget, create jobs and make the tough decisions needed to help us all succeed. By supporting my campaign, not only will you be making a contribution to help send a common sense small business owner to Washington, you will be taking an active part in creating change that our country desperately needs.
