Economic Growth and Small Business

I believes a strong, free, and engaged working middle class is a key driver of economic growth and investment. Government policies that favor the political and economic elite restrict growth and lead to wealth inequality. Higher levels of inequality and a smaller working middle class diminish public engagement in government, and reduce broad acceptance of free market values.

I believe that small businesses are the backbone of a strong and thriving economy. I support policy that creates incentives for entrepreneurship, reduces burdensome start up regulations, provides for opportunities to compete and empowers small business owners to operate as they see fit.
