Economy and Jobs
Economic success stems from limited government and expanded freedom. For years, President Obama’s agenda destroyed jobs and tookore money out of hard earned paychecks. With President Donald Trump and strong majorities in the House and Senate, we have been given a new opportunity to promote positive conservative change.
In order to increase national employment and put our economy back on the path to prosperity, our nation must maintain a strong right-to-work workforce. South Carolina’s positive pro-business environment proves that these policies will create jobs and bring success. I believe we should provide broad, growth-oriented, permanent incentives for economic activity across all sectors and industries, with immediate application and sustained, long-term implications. This will ensure that Washington takes a back seat to Main Street and job creators are empowered to do what they do best—create jobs. Small businesses, which are America’s job creators, deserve positive encouragement.
House Republicans know what it takes to get our economy moving again, which is why we have promoted the "A Better Way" agenda that promotes job creation through tax cuts and deregulation.
I believe in the power and promise of the American people to do what is necessary to rebuild our economy and to make it stronger. The government, for its part, needs to be bold but also precise. Our economy will recover, so we must prepare for that recovery by avoiding actions today that could lead to hyperinflation, high interest rates, and higher taxes in the future.

Furthermore, this plan would adversely affect our military by slashing funding by $868 billion over the next ten years.

“Washington is broken and we need to stop its out-of-control spending. Due to the inaction of both Democrats in the Senate and the current Administration, our nation’s debt ceiling is now at a critical juncture.
