David Rouzer on Budget & Economy

 

 


Fight to cut federal spending & size of government

I am a firm believer that less government is best. I will fight to cut federal spending, reform our entitlement programs, reform our regulatory agencies, and reform our tax code so that we can grow our economy and reduce our national debt, which threatens to render us a third-rate nation subject to the whims of our enemies across the world.

Our country is at a crossroads. Our national debt is now 100% of our Gross Domestic Product. History shows that once a country reaches this point, it is especially difficult to achieve economic growth and our standard of living will begin to decline. The more we spend and the more we tax, the longer it will take to get our economy moving again. The quicker we reduce the size of government, cut spending, reform our federal regulatory agencies, and reduce the tax burden on our small businesses and other job creators, the quicker the economy will turn around and jobs will be created.

Expanding economy creates jobs & leads to surpluses

Q: Do you support the Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction plan and why or why not?

A: I do not support the tax increases called for under Simpson/Bowles to help balance the budget. The only way to properly tackle our country's debt issue is to do two things: Grow the economy & cut spending. A flatter, fairer tax system and getting rid of onerous rules and regulations in the financial, labor and energy sectors would help spur economic growth thereby generating more revenue to the Treasury. Reforms to entitlement programs must be made for long term spending reductions to be achieved. An expanding economy that creates jobs will lead to surpluses if spending is held in check and entitlements are reformed in a balanced manner that protects an individual's investments made during their working career.
