LIVE at 5PM ET - UAW Rally to save the American Dream
The real American Dream is about hard work and opportunity, but the biggest threat to the American dream is Washington’s $33 trillion debt. My top priority in Congress will be to cut the federal government back down to the size of the original piece of parchment on which it was written - the Constitution. Only when the government is held accountable and forced to live within its means will the full potential of the American economy be unleashed. Federal bureaucracies are out of control and many are un-Constitutional. It's time to clean house. As the author of the Conservative Federal Budget, I proved that it is possible to reduce our national debt and balance the budget by enacting thoughtful entitlement reforms while still preserving Social Security and Medicare for the next generation. It’s time to get Washington out of the way, stop the reckless spending and fix the broken tax system in order to give American workers freedom to succeed.
