Fiscal Responsibility

We must reduce our long-term debt, but not at the expense of our national needs.  Investments in education and jobs training, transportation and infrastructure, and research and development create jobs, grow the economy, and help rebuild a strong middle class.  Also, they create ladders of opportunity for those working to get into the middle class.  I believe in a balanced approach to reducing our deficit – one that cuts spending responsibly, closes corporate tax loopholes, protects the most vulnerable citizens, and ensures millionaires pay their fair share.  We cannot simply cut taxes as a way to prosperity because irresponsible tax cuts create inequality and not prosperity.  Instead, we must continue to examine a long-term deficit reduction plan that preserves investments that will ensure we remain the competitive leader in an advancing, global economy.
