SCOTT'S PRIORITIES

SECURING THE BORDER

America is a generous nation and welcomes more than 1 million new legal immigrants each year to pursue the American Dream. Yet, 8 million immigrants have crossed our southern border illegally in the past three years, including drug and sex traffickers and terrorists. I believe in tall fences and wide gates. We should know who is entering our country and deny entry to those who wish to cross the border illegally. We should also revamp our immigration laws to allow more immigration with work visas where identified jobs can be filled.

BALANCED BUDGET

We must have a constitutional amendment to balance our budget each year. Without a requirement for a balanced budget, there will never be spending priorities set by Congress. It is unrestrained spending that causes inflation. Inflation is simply a tax by another means

AGGRESSIVE REDUCTION OF DEFICIT SPENDING

The American people do not expect Congress to solve the deficit in one year. But the American people are tired of Congress kicking the can down the road. Congress should commit to reducing the deficit by 5% each year and work towards a balanced budget within 20 years. We are robbing the next generation wThe American people do not expect Congress to solve the deficit in one year. But the American people are tired of Congress kicking the can down the road. Congress should commit to reducing the deficit by 5% each year and work towards a balanced budget within 20 years. We are robbing the next generation when we spend beyond our means.

BAN STOCK TRADING BY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

Members of Congress should be banned from trading stocks with inside information. If you want to be a member of Congress, you should commit to suspending all stock trades. Too many members of Congress are getting rich off of inside information they learn from secret briefings. Insider trading is illegal for the American people and should be illegal for members of Congress.

CONGRESSIONAL LAWS SHOULD APPLY TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

Did you know that Congress exempts itself from most laws that it passes? I say if it is good enough for the American people, it should be good enough for Congress.

REDUCE UNNECESSARY FOREIGN AID

 Our government spends over $50 billion dollars each year giving money to countries who don’t need it. Let’s get our own fiscal house in order before borrowing money from China to give away to other countries who don’t need it.

MAKE CONGRESS DO ITS JOB

The federal government has issued over 1 million federal regulations because Congress passes incomplete laws and then delegates to federal agencies to fill in all the gaps that Congress refused to address. We have unelected federal bureaucrats passing more laws than Congress and governing our lives with no accountability. One way to fix this problem is to make Congress approve all regulations adopted by federal agencies before they go into effect.

NO NEW TAXES OR TAX INCREASES

We do not have a revenue problem in our federal government. Congress has a spending problem. Federal revenue in 2018 was $4.04 trillion. That revenue increased by 25% over the next four years to $5.06 trillion. During that same time, spending was $5 trillion in 2018 and is now $6.48 trillion. Congress got a trillion-dollar spending increase and still managed to create deeper deficits.
