Gwen Graham on Corporations

 

 


Line item veto to get rid of corporate handouts

The reckless government shutdown cost our national economy $24 billion and hurt Florida greatly. The shutdown was an abject failure of leadership. While they refused to fix the mess they made, members of congress had the audacity to continue to collect a paycheck while those at home suffered the consequences. I will work with both parties to stop future government shutdowns that put our economic security at risk while supporting policies that reflect North Florida values.
  • Work with Republicans and Democrats to get rid of corporate handouts and identify budget priorities for people, not special interests, like my father did during his time in Congress.
  • Support a presidential line item veto to help control wasteful Washington spending
  • Help balance the budget by taking steps like rewriting the tax code to eliminate loopholes that cost the country billions
  • Prohibit any member of congress from receiving a paycheck if congress forces a government shutdown or fails to pass a budget.
