Jobs & the Economy

For far too long, our nation’s small businesses have been crippled by bureaucratic red tape handed down by Washington. Instead of fixing these problems, the Biden administration has doubled down. They've created new regulations that force businesses to comply with their liberal agenda.

At the same time, Biden and his progressive allies in Congress have shut down American energy production, sending fuel costs through the roof, and spent billions of dollars we don't have, causing rampant inflation. Now, it’s time to free the American economy and get people back to work.

As part of the new Republican majority, I'm working to cut wasteful spending, bring more high-paying jobs to America (and South Mississippi in particular), and lower the prices hard-working people pay for essentials like gas and groceries.
