I still believe that smaller government and lower taxes are the most effective economic policies. Working Americans now pay more in taxes than at any time in history. If you add up the costs of federal, state and local taxes, the average citizen pays more than half of his/her income to the government. We should meet the most pressing needs of the government by cutting waste, fraud and inefficiency – not by letting Washington make another grab into the taxpayers' pockets.
It is my opinion that stimulating the economy through tax relief restores consumer confidence, spurs capital investment, and creates new jobs, which are critical components of economic growth. .
