The Founding Fathers created a limited government, because they believe as Thomas Jefferson stated “a government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything you have.”  I ran for Congress with the goal of limiting, not expanding government.  This is the kind of leadership the American people and those of Alabama’s Sixth Congressional District have demanded.  They understand that just because Congress can act does not mean that it should, especially when that action generally leads to our country towards a stagnate economy, government intrusion and higher taxes.  I have resisted the call to simply pass legislation.
Instead, I have focused on legislation designed to shrink, not grow government.  Over the last two years, I have, among other things, offered legislation that lead to the delay of regulations that would have crippled small and rural healthcare providers, offered legislation to reign in wasteful agency spending, provided more oversight to the Congress, offered legislation to reign in improper regulations, including those by the EPA, developed a policy rider that lead to the elimination of the ban on exporting crude oil, and presented ideas on how to reduce spending.  These are the types of ideas that resonate with the American people, and I look forward to serving another term to see more of them implemented.

It’s Time to Change Direction

Our nation desperately needs leaders who are willing to stand up and make the tough choices. I’m running for Congress because I believe there’s still time to right our course.

Replacing Obamacare

The problem with Obamacare is not the website or the rollout. The problem with Obamacare is what it’s trying to impose upon the American people.

Our National Debt

Like so many other addiction issues, the first step for Congress to take in fixing the debt problem is to admit that they have a spending problem.
