The very best of America serves in our armed forces. It is our responsibility to support our military and ensure our troops have the tools they need to protect our homeland and support our allies around the world. We must also look for ways to streamline operations at the Department of Defense so we can dedicate more of our resources to completing our military’s missions and preparing for future challenges.
As a business guy, I’ve competed, created jobs, and made tough decisions while dealing with an onslaught of rules and regulations from Washington. Our current regulatory environment is sucking the very life out of our free enterprise system and preventing businesses from accessing capital. We need to dismantle the regulatory regime of Dodd-Frank, encourage entrepreneurial innovation, and unleash economic growth to get Americans working again.
Agriculture is Georgia’s number one industry. Having grown up working on my family farm in the summers, I’m humbled to represent Georgia’s farm families and agricultural tradition on this committee. Years of excessive regulations have hurt the farm economy, and I will continue to work to both roll-back these regulations and advance Georgia's agricultural interests.
Our country is well past the tipping point in this debt crisis, and Washington must get serious about cutting spending, budgeting responsibly, and saving Social Security and Medicare. I will continue to fight for Georgia’s priorities and to build a better future for our kids and grandkids.
