Budget

I believe we must streamline our tax code, broaden our tax base and lower rates across the board. Making these changes will benefit the economy and protect hard-working South Dakota families from higher taxes.

Budget

South Dakota balances its budget every single year. The federal government should do the same. Mike supports a balanced budget amendment. The federal government should pass a budget every year. Mike commends the house republicans for at least taking steps to pass a budget. Although he appreciates their effort, Mike's long taken the position that he disagrees with any cuts to Medicare. For that reason, Mike does not currently support the budget plan offered by congressman Ryan, specifically because of the unclear revisions to Medicare.

All federal tax rates should be lowered and the base broadened. This approach will encourage job creation and capital investment.
