My Position on Government Reform
Washington is broken. Our Republic should be a nation of the people, by the people, for the people. Washington is for itself, and that needs to change. Bureaucracy, waste, fraud, abuse, and regulatory burdens plague our government and make it inefficient to operate. It is a goal of mine to reduce the size and scope of government and make it more accountable to the citizens of this great nation.
It is an uphill battle and will take a concerted effort to restore Washington to the Founding Fathers’ original vision for our Republic to function for the people. We can start this process by passing my bill, H.R. 2199, the Federal Agency Sunset Commission Act, that would put all agencies and departments on a path to sunset, unless Congress reauthorizes them. Congress should immediately pass term-limits, remove unnecessary bureaucratic obstacles, and reduce government’s burden on hardworking Americans.
