James Comer on Budget & Economy
When I was Agriculture Commissioner, my department was one of the first to return money back to the taxpayer. I will bring this same fiscal restraint to Washington. We need to turn our economy around by spending less and taxing less in Washington. That way, we can give private sector businesses the stability and certainty they need to create good-paying jobs for hardworking Kentuckians.
The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Economy: Do you support federal spending as a means of promoting economic growth?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
