Spending and the Budget

A Henrico County Sheriff we cut our budget by eliminating waste and duplicative spending. Every family, business and local/state government body in Virginia operates by balancing their budgets – and we understand that you can’t spend what you don’t have.

That is why so many are frustrated by Congress’ inability to live within its means. If we can cut our spending here in Henrico County – we can cut it in Washington. We need to:

  • Pass a Balanced Budget Amendment.
  • Put a freeze on all regulations until a full audit of those currently on the books can be completed. We must then eliminate all duplicitous and job-killing regulations.
  • Eliminate any duplicitous departments and spending from our federal budget. We must also cut the wasteful spending and move our whole budgeting process to a zero based method where every penny spent must be justified.
