We must balance the budget. Current US debt is more than 21 trillion dollars. The waste and fraud in many of our most important social welfare support programs, has spun out of control. Congress must work to isolate and get rid of waste that increases our debt as well as hinders us from providing an effective social safety net to our most vulnerable citizens. We must also be sure that historic tax reform–the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act–which has provided more than 90% of Americans with bigger paychecks and resulted in increased benefits such as maternity and paternity leave, remains in place. We must also continue to create a domestic economic environment that encourages companies to keep their operations here in the US, hiring Americans to perform all types of jobs, both in the labor and professional sectors.
