Bill Jones on Budget & Economy


Concerned about higher federal spending

I am concerned about higher federal spending, although some is justifiable because of the rebuilding of Afghanistan and Iraq and anti-terrorism demands. "Proper tax policies combined with controls on discretionary spending can get us there, but only if we remember that a good economy sets good tax policy, not the other way around."

Stop subsidizing the rest of the country

We need to change how government works, ensure corporate responsibility, but also provide the level playing field for California. Jones also believes it is time California stopped subsidizing the rest of the country. For every $1 sent by California taxpayers to Washington, we receive only 70 cents back in federal services and programs. Jones will fight for a more equal share of federal spending in all program areas, to keep federal dollars in our state supporting California jobs.
