Fiscal Policy

By Charel Winston

Candidate for United States Representative; District 16

I am committed to putting our country's fiscal house in order
I am committed to putting our country's fiscal house in order, and ending the dangerous cycle of "borrow, spend, and let our children worry about it" currently in place in Congress. America is currently grappling with the largest deficits in American history (much of which is owed to foreign governments like China and Saudi Arabia), with Congress providing almost no oversight on waste and abuse. The reckless spending and misguided priorities of the current Congress has had a disastrous effect: every child in America now inherits $30,000 in debt, while programs designed to secure our borders and ports, support our troops, strengthen our schools, and care for veterans and seniors have been dangerously under-funded. I understand that there is ample money to govern and protect our country, provided we concentrate on real priorities, without wasteful spending and excessive bureaucracy. I will fight for middle class tax relief and a budget that puts our security, our economy, and our children's future first.
