What other issues do you consider most important and how would you address it?

Peter Churchman

17th District


The federal government grows every year, yet we are not any better off because of it; we are worse off because we have spiraling debt and our currency is losing its value.  The size and scope of the federal government should be cut back to what is expressly provided for in the Constitution and nothing more. We need to cut taxes drastically and pay for it by eliminating all of the unnecessary and inefficient programs, departments, and agencies run by the federal government.  Congress should pass a balanced budget that works to grow the economy and pay off the debt.
