Our national debt exceeds $20 trillion -- more than $60,000 for every man, woman, and child in the United States. According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), by 2027 the U.S. will be borrowing an estimated $1.5 trillion per year to keep the government running. This is not sustainable; it is unfair to our children and grandchildren.

One of my top priorities in Congress is to control federal spending and reduce borrowing. I will use my legislative and business experience to build coalitions in Congress to lower federal debt so that we don’t saddle our children and grandchildren with this financial burden. Also, I will eliminate redundant and wasteful federal programs, agencies, and departments to reduce the costly burdens they place on Idahoans.
