It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
Unemployment is a result of a bad economy. Louisiana has seen too many businesses choose Texas over Louisiana. Our taxes are too high and we have too many regulations on businesses. If we want businesses to pick Louisiana over Texas, we need to lower our taxes on businesses and decrease unnecessary regulations. This will bring companies and new jobs to Louisiana.
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
The government needs to allow individuals to keep more of the money the work hard to earn. If individuals have more money in their pockets, they will invest it and spend it. More money being invested and spent will boost the economy. The Trump tax cuts were great for the United States but we need something similar in Louisiana.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a born again Christian. I believe in God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
