Our Constitution boldly protects the freedoms given by God, making the United States the greatest country on Earth. But those core values are under attack – from the Left and the Right – everyday. Over the last several decades, the size and scope of the federal government has grown larger than our Founders ever imagined. It is time to restore the balance of powers they envisioned by reining in federal overreach and reinstating Congress’s Article I authorities.

There are many important issues Congress should address, but the three most important to the future of our nation are securing the southern border, balancing the budget and lowering inflation, and defending life. A failure on any one of these jeopardizes our sovereignty, stability, and moral values in a way that could fundamentally change the nation as we know it. I believe in our great nation and will work to ensure its success long into the future.
