Taxes, Regulations, & a Balanced Budget

Taxes

Tax cuts for the wealthy are unnecessary. The gap between those most and least fortunate keeps widening. Millionaires do not need tax loopholes. Trickle-down economics does not work. What really trickles down is increased income disparity. Studies have shown conclusively that when millionaires get a tax break, the only thing that consistently happens is that those millionaires get richer while everyone else gets poorer.

I support decreasing the corporate tax rate, which has a much better chance of stimulating our economy.

Government Regulations

Having run my own small family practice clinic for many years, I understand why small business owners are frustrated by over-regulation. Rules should protect people, the environment, or both. They should improve safety and enhance productivity. Unnecessary and burdensome regulations hamper innovation and morale. If elected, I will fight hard to make sure federal regulations are smart and necessary and do not overburden small businesses.

A Balanced Budget

Fiscal responsibility in spending is indeed important, and this is one of my more moderate views. We must remember that ever since the 50s, Democrats have led the budget toward being balanced time and time again. The last balanced budget was handed to George W Bush at the end of the Clinton Presidency. I intend to continue that trend.
