Government overspending is creating a huge burden of debt that threatens the economic well-being of our children. Our national debt of more than $17 trillion has saddled us with liabilities equal to $53,000 for every adult and child in America.
Education is critical to the success and economic security of future generations. By providing a solid educational foundation from the start, we can ensure that our children have the tools necessary to keep the United States competitive in the global marketplace.
Arizona has made progress the past few years in establishing more types of affordable, reliable power, building the first renewable portfolio standard in the country, and aggressively pushing for higher energy-efficiency standards.
The Affordable Care Act has confused an already complex and wasteful healthcare system. Americans need more choices and a competitive insurance marketplace, not mandates. We all want a system where people are treated fairly and given the support they need to remain healthy. We want those who become ill to receive the best care possible and care that is affordable.
Other than at the IRS, no job is ever created by raising taxes.

Last year, international trade represented $17.9. Billion for Arizona’s economy and supported over 55,000 jobs across our state.

Thank you to all the men and women who have so honorably served this nation.
