In tough times, Montana families and businesses understand what it is like to live within their means. Washington’s culture of reckless spending and excessive borrowing is leading us down a dangerous path leaving our future generations with mountains of debt. The first bill I introduced as a member of the House and Senate, was the Balanced Budget Accountability Act. It ensures that Congress balances a budget, or members of Congress don’t get paid. It’s that simple: No balanced budget, No paycheck.
The sustainable path to fiscal health won’t happen overnight, Congress needs to balance the budget. As a businessman, I will always work to bring commonsense to Washington, DC.
