Statement: Returning home after serving in Iraq, I was amazed at how much state government had grown, and how much taxes had risen. We are literally being taxed and regulated out of the American Dream. This must stop.
My motto is: Less Tax, Less Government, More Freedom. For me to support legislation, it must pass three conservative tests: Is it needed? Can it be done more efficiently in the private sector? Will it increase taxes? I will always support legislation that limits government, promotes job growth, and defends our Constitutionally protected rights. I would be honored to have your vote.
