Fiscal Responsibility and Protecting Taxpayers

Irresponsible spending and borrowing has brought us to the debt crisis we are now facing at nearly every level of government.  Connecticut families deserve better. That’s why I’ve voted to end tax breaks and wasteful subsidies for big oil and big agriculture companies. And that’s why as a member of the state legislature, I gave back 10% of my salary to the taxpayers. We need a smart, balanced approach to reduce our deficit and support middle class families. I’m a proud cosponsor of the No Budget No Pay Act, because Congress should not get paid unless they do their job and pass a budget. I also voted to freeze my pay in Congress and do not receive taxpayer-funded health insurance.
