Economy and Jobs
Jobs are my top priority in Congress. By giving Americans the freedom to work, we can increase our nation’s income, reduce our debt, and put America back on the road to financial recovery.
Across America, families are struggling to make ends meet. Our nation is spending spending 3.6 Trillion dollars compared to the 2.3 Trillion we bring in. Cuts are important, but we cannot cut enough to return our nation to financial solvency. To do this we must grow jobs. By giving Americans the opportunity to work, we can increase our nation’s income, reduce our debt, and put America back on the road to financial recovery.
Heavy taxes and burdensome regulations have killed jobs across America. Regulatory balance is needed—commonsense solutions that do not cost a single job. I have introduced legislation to restore jobs in New Mexico’s logging industry, where reckless regulation crippled a once-flourishing economy. With careful laws like this one, we can restore jobs to New Mexico.
In my work on the Financial Services Committee, I am committed to holding Wall Street accountable, and to helping rebuild the small businesses on the Main Streets of southern New Mexico. I support policies that spark economic opportunity and allow job creation. And I am working to protect jobs here, and to help bring manufacturers back to America to create American jobs.
