Jobs and the Economy

Unnecessary and burdensome regulations have hindered economic growth and job creation in America. That is why I am fighting for smarter, pro-growth policies that get government out of the way and help small businesses expand and hire new workers. In fact, I have supported overturning numerous regulations written by unelected bureaucrats who do not understand the negative consequences of the rules they wrote.

Michigan has a talented workforce and world-leading manufacturing base, and we can keep it that way by promoting opportunities in the skilled trades. I am committed to ensuring residents have the opportunity to learn career and technical skills that are vital to applying for good-paying jobs.

“Democrats have wanted to impeach President Trump since he took office instead of working with him to help our country. Today, they continue to push for impeachment while putting the real concerns of hardworking Michigan residents on the backburner. Speaker Pelosi has not scheduled a vote on a new trade agreement with Mexico and Canada that will help Michigan farmers and create jobs in manufacturing. There is also no timetable on finalizing 2020 funding for our men and women serving overseas, the construction of a new lock at the Soo Locks, or the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. The delays and inaction on these key priorities creates uncertainty for those serving our nation, and these vital issues deserve to be finished instead of House Democrats’ partisan push for impeachment.”

This agreement was reached nearly a year ago and there should be a vote soon, but it’s clear that impeachment is a more important priority for Democrats than passing a new agreement that will benefit Michigan farmers and manufacturers."
