I think Congress can assist by getting law’s repealed so business can grow. 2.Reduce the size and intrusiveness government and it's out of control spending. We need to balance the budget yearly and go to a 12% flat tax to stop waist. 3. We need to stop common core in every state,then close the Department of Education and return the money to the State funds and allow local school boards to control their Education in schools and their funding.
