Economy and Jobs

America should always be a place where hard work, success and achievement are rewarded.  But for too long, the economy has been stuck in neutral, causing stifled growth and shrinking opportunity for many individuals.  It’s clear that the current playbook isn’t working: an expanding federal government, with more taxes, more debt and more regulation is not the answer. 

American innovation is what drives economic growth.  We are the hardest working, most innovative nation in the world, and our people and ideas are what drives our success.  We must work together to build a 21st Century economy, working on reforms and jobs legislation that ensures the United States can compete globally and create jobs here at home.
