Where I Stand
Maintaining and investing in our state and local infrastructure (roads, bridges, sidewalks etc.) is absolutely crucial to our economy and our quality of life here in Wisconsin.
As a state we must allocate all resources thoughtfully, which means making a serious commitment to transportation infrastructure. Maintaining safe and efficient roads and bridges could not be more important.
Working to Lower Taxes
Since elected I have voted to cut $10B in taxes in Wisconsin, and given the chance again, I would vote to do the same or more. The tax burden we face here in Wisconsin is too high and it has been that way for too long.
In order to cut taxes we have to either do more with less or trim down on the services that are being provided which makes for difficult discussions. I am an advocate of taking a wholistic approach when putting a state budget together. It's best to try and do the same or more with less funding, but that is not always possible. I promise to make your wallet a priority when working with other lawmakers to craft the state's biennium budget.
Lowering Healthcare Costs
Wisconsin's healthcare when compared to the other 50 states has a lot to be proud of, but there is still more that can be done.
Based on U.S. News & World Report, Wisconsin ranks 15th in healthcare access, and 10th in healthcare quality. In order to improve the quality and access to healthcare in Wisconsin, we have to attract the best healthcare talent and find the proper balance between health insurance rates and the cost of providing the healthcare.
There is no question - educating our youth should be the state's top priority behind public safety, but I would argue they go hand-in-hand.
