The biggest concerns I hear from Ohioans – families and businesses alike – are jobs and employment. Five years of economic uncertainty have left people worried about their family budgets, and what the future has to offer for them, their children, and their grandchildren.
I share these concerns, and am working hard to empower job-seekers and businesses to work and hire. Read what I’m doing and supporting, from reforming job-education programs to limiting government overreach, below:
What I’m Doing to Promote Job Growth
A healthier economy and renewed job growth require a responsible plan to get our fiscal house in order. Just like your family does, Congress should have to make a budget and prioritize spending. And balancing our national budget simply means that Washington doesn't spend more than it takes in every year. I’ve also voted against budgets and debt ceiling increases that didn’t include any plan to put us on a path to balance.
We’re losing our edge on innovation and entrepreneurship, because the federal government is getting in the way. The total federal regulatory burden now reaches up to an estimated $1.68 trillion.
That’s $14,678 per household – equal to 23.2% of a family's average income! Imagine if you had that back in your pocketbook
Sluggish job growth, higher health care costs, and an out-of-control government are not what hardworking Ohioans deserve. We must get Washington out of the way - whether at the doctor’s office, in the job market, or at the gas pump – to build an America that works.

Fixing Health Care with Patient-Centered Solutions
That’s why I repeatedly voted to fully repeal the law and to delay the individual mandate.
