Tonight Senator Mike Lee held a live event on his Facebook page that was also linked to his Senate page. As always, watching and listening to Mike is like sitting in Church. I feel so much better hearing him listen to questions, then answer people with clear, plain language so there is no misunderstanding as to where he stands on issues or about the principles he so heartedly defends.
His closing comments were absolutely fantastic. I wish those comments and the following was on YouTube so I could embed them. They are not yet available, but here is my transcription of a short video on his Twitter feed:
“In order to have economic growth we do need to adjust the size, the scope, the cost of the federal government. And when we look at so called tax pay-fors, we shouldn’t just be looking to raise taxes on anyone, we should, instead, be looking for ways to make government more effective, make government more efficient, make sure the government can do more with less.
Business all around America do this constantly as they have to adjust to market cycles, as they have to adjust to real world conditions.
Tragically, the government hasn’t held itself to that same standard. And as a result government has continued to grow, the cost of it has continued to expand and to do so at an unacceptably high rate….” ~ Senator Mike Lee, October 25, 2017

It is NOT the Government’s money:
Watch Mike on today’s Senate Republican’s broadcast regarding the Parent Tax Penalty. The entire broadcast is great. Mike comes in around the 14 minute mark.
