It never ceases to amaze me that the same government that can’t prevent crime in its prisons expects us to believe they know how to spend our money better than we do. If progress revolved around government spending, we’d have solved all our problems long ago. The truth is this: the money you take home to spend on your family, invest in your business, or make your own life better, doesn’t belong in some bureaucrat’s pocket.

I signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge in 2012 and I’m standing by that pledge today. I’ll oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes on Idaho’s citizens.

In 2018, I supported H335 which reduced unemployment tax contributions required of businesses, H463 which reduces the individual and corporate rate and provides a child tax credit, and H675 which increased the credit from $130 to $205.
