Long before I walked the halls of Congress, I was a small business owner. Owning my own small business was a milestone on my path to achieve the American Dream. That’s why I support legislation to make it easier for workers to become small business owners, incentivized high-quality apprenticeships, which have proven successful in South Carolina, and led legislation to increase access to benefits for independent contractors in a market-driven manner. We can build on these proposals to unleash innovation and empower workers and employers across our economy.
Today, American families continue to grapple with sky high prices whether at the grocery store or at the pump. Restoring American opportunity starts with cutting inflationary spending and unleashing American energy production – not punishing energy producers. I’m proud to fight to keep the American dream affordable for everyday families.
