My pledge is to serve you through hard work and listening to your ideas.
As a Westpoint graduate and former Army Ranger, service to the residents of the Fourth District is my number one priority. I am committed to responding to the concerns of constituents, assisting seniors and veterans, and ensuring that all Kentuckians have a strong voice fighting for them in Washington.
Today, I am fighting to defend our freedom, this time against an over reaching government
The Davis Plan:
End the bailouts
This isn’t the right direction for our country. That is why I voted against all the bailouts, I voted against the failed trillion-dollar stimulus and against the trillion-dollar government takeover of health care. More government, more spending and more taxes are not the answer.
With every new bailout passed by Washington Democrats, comes the same failed band-aid theory. The national debt now exceeds a whopping $13 trillion. We cannot spend our way to prosperity.
All across the Fourth District, I hear from frustrated Kentuckians who continue to ask when Washington will get serious about reining in this out of control spending.
Washington must take serious and aggressive steps toward reining in the out of control spending. The time has come to add a federal balanced budget amendment to our Constitution.
Stop the reckless spending and Balance the budget
When a family is upside down financially, they must put together a plan to work their way out of it and get to a balanced budget.
This is exactly what the federal government must do.
I am fighting against the borrow, bailout, tax and spend agenda in Washington. We don’t need to raise taxes. We need to cut spending. Our unemployment rate continues to hover near 10 percent in Kentucky and nationwide, and the federal debt exceeds $13 trillion. We cannot spend our way to prosperity.
- Adopting a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution
- Passing the CAP the DEBT Act, which mandates a 2/3rds vote in the House and the Senate to increase the debt ceiling.
- This year alone we have offered more than $150 billion in specific spending cuts. Each time Speaker Pelosi and Washington Democrats have rejected those ideas.
- Over the last 2 years, President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have increased discretionary spending by 88%. Another immediate step we should take is to reverse that increase, saving more than $100 billion.
- Allowing Kentucky families to keep more of their hard-earned dollars.
And a fiscally responsible plan to create jobs
As a former small business owner, I understand the challenges faced by our entrepreneurs and hardworking local businesses.
Small businesses have created more than 70 percent of all new jobs in the last decade. They are at the heart of job creation and they will be the engine that gets the economy going again.
Empowering the American people will lead us toward prosperity. We must reward hard work, ingenuity, creativity and entrepreneurship.
In order to jumpstart our economy and get Kentuckians back to work, we must:
- Stop Speaker Pelosi and President Obama from allowing $3.8 trillion in new taxes
- Repeal Obamacare and replace it with commonsense measures to reduce costs and increase access to care
- Adopt an all-of-the-above energy plan
- Grow small businesses, rather than the size of government
- Pass the REINS Act to hold the federal government accountable for the thousands of rules and regulations proposed by the executive branch before it can be enforced on the American people.
