Jobs & Economy
For Congresswoman Ellmers, the first step in fixing our economy is to do no harm. Any budget proposal needs to rein in spending now so that we stop borrowing 42 cents of every dollar we spend. This is ruinous for our future and history has shown it does not create jobs. Instead, we need to shrink the size of the federal government by eliminating and curtailing programs that can be more appropriately handled by the private sector so that government can concentrate on areas where federal action is appropriate, like national defense and home land security.
Congresswoman Ellmers believes that our budget needs to provide an economic model that spends within our means and seeks private sector solutions to build a strong economy. Our problems are not caused because we tax too little, they are caused because we spend too much.

When faced with daily news reports of millions receiving policy cancellation notices, the president has redefined his earlier statement by misstating what he said 29 times previously.
