In Utah, we know the value of a dollar. My neighbors and I balance our personal family budgets as well as our businesses' budgets. The United States government should not be exempt. Politicians in Washington have violated their oath and promise placing our country in immediate peril by governing well beyond our means. Fixing these issues are going to be painful but necessary to protect this country for our posterity. I stand ready to make the tough decisions to prevent placing our children and our children's children in a cycle of overwhelming debt.
