What is your position on taxes, spending and the federal deficit?
I want to see tax cut’s for small business for the first 5 years and social security taxable income raised from $35,000 to $45,000. Our leadership has failed us in so many ways by spending our tax dollars this is the very reason why we have such a large Federal deficit.

I fully support the legalization of the Cannabinoids from the marijuana plant for the health benefits that are proven to help people with multiple disorders.

We as a nation need to find a alternative pain relief drug to help stop the opioed crisis we are facing.

I fully support more military spending in replacing our aging military equipment the poses an enormous risk to the safety of our men and women serving this great nation.
