Americans are taxed too much and those of us who live in California are hit even harder with high taxes. High taxes make it harder to buy a home, save for college, and plan for retirement. For small businesses, high taxes stifle investment and drive away jobs.

 In Congress, I am working to reduce taxes on all wage earners and job-creating businesses. Bloated government agencies must learn to operate more like businesses. The debt is a spending problem, not a tax problem. I voted for a balanced budget resolution that forces Washington to live within its means. The budget provides for a strong national defense, repeals Obamacare, strengthens and protects Medicare and Social Security for our seniors, and most importantly, balances in ten years without putting a single cent on the backs of taxpayers

 My work for taxpayers and fiscally responsible approach to government has earned me the support of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
