    Friend- Did you know that a key priority of mine is to make sure Congress creates an environment for businesses to flourish?

I believe that the small-business, the manufacturer, and the entrepreneur are the backbone of our economy, so we should do everything in our power to remove obstacles to job creation and economic growth. That’s why I supported the recent tax reform legislation and the rollback o... Read more
