Cutting Federal Spending
When I travel the district and meet with constituents, I routinely encounter individuals concerned over how the government spends their taxpayer dollars and what we can do to help reduce the federal deficit.  I have suggested a number of proposals including implementing the savings identified by the General Accountability Office in a report on duplication and waste in government, allowing Medicare to negotiate their drug prices like the Veterans Administration is already doing and putting into practice the preventative care measures of the Affordable Care Act.  In all, these measures could help save between $125 billion and $150 billion every year.

In addition to these, however, I want to hear from you.  Below you will find a form that will allow you to share your suggestions for places the government can make cuts.  Please take the time to enter your information along with your idea.  My staff and I will review the idea and get back with you as soon as possible with our thoughts on the issue.

I always appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.  Please feel free to call us in the Washington office at 202-225-4611 if you have any questions.  I look forward to hearing from you.
