Fiscal Responsibility

Fiscal responsibility is not just a buzzword to Congresswoman Adams. She is committed to reducing the national deficit, and working on bipartisan solutions to support job creation and protect the most vulnerable. This means tax increases for the wealthy and tax cuts for the middle class. In order to fully restore the country’s economic sustainability, a balanced approach must be adopted.
