    I believe in fiscal conservatism. We need to cut out the pork and prioritize spending to be the most effective for our residents.

    I oppose taxation to assist entities that have bought their seats of power through PACs. The federal government has a responsibility to protect the states and the people of the United States. One to the entities we should be protected from are the corporations. How can it do that when the corporations have bought and paid for the politician it helped to elect?

    Repeal the 16th amendment. There should not be any gov't fees, permits, licenses, regulations. And the spending level for the federal gov't should be what it was in 1790.

    This year, Bartholomew County employees received a flat $750 “bonus”, rather than a percentage of increase in pay. This “bonus” didn’t cover the increase in the employee-pay portion of the medical benefit package—a package in which coverage was reduced from 80/20 to 70/30. We cannot continue asking people to do more with less and for employees to be loyal without being adequately compensated.
