Jobs & Economic Growth
Families in Southern Illinois and throughout America have reached unsurpassed levels of prosperity with ingenuity and innovation. However, Washington has operated for far too long under the faulty policy of throwing more taxpayer money at inefficient programs.

Washington must stop spending money it doesn’t have and focus its efforts on creating opportunities for job growth.
