Jobs and the Economy
- Excerpt: "Government does not create jobs. It is government’s responsibility to create a healthy environment for job growth by reducing tax and regulatory burdens that are currently stifling Minnesota businesses."
- Excerpt: "I will fight for lower taxes and fiscal responsibility in state spending by closely examining our government programs to eliminate fraud, abuse and duplicative services because government needs to live within its means."
- Excerpt: "I support policies and innovative ways to ensure that we can attract and retain the best teachers. I support school choice to give parents the flexibility to provide their children with the educational opportunities that work best for their families."
- Excerpt: "However, with rising costs in health care, we need innovative reforms to promote a patient-centered, sustainable system that encourages marketplace competition. These reforms will make health care more affordable and accessible while ensuring that consumers remain in control of their own health care decisions."
