Ted believes hardworking taxpayers deserve to keep their hard-earned money. That’s why he fought for the Trump tax cuts which cut taxes for 90% of Americans. As one of the few members of Congress to receive the Taxpayers’ Friend Award from the National Taxpayers Union and the Taxpayer Super Hero Award from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, Ted evaluates every tax proposal by three questions:
- Will it cut taxes for the middle class?
- Will it make America’s business climate more competitive in the global economy?
- Will it simplify the tax filing process for people at home?
Ted also fought for regulatory reform which revitalized the U.S. economy before the Biden agenda destroyed it. The founding fathers wrote the Constitution to limit government because small government unleashes private enterprise to innovate and create. But Washington politicians of both parties have an addiction to overspending, which leads to “the hidden tax” of inflation which is crippling family budgets across the state.
Ted is fighting hard to restrain overspending and cut the national debt. His strong stand is one of the reasons he received the Freedom Fighter Award from FreedomWorks. He believes it’s time for the federal government to live within its means, just like North Carolina families and small businesses do.
