"I am pro-small business and entrepreneurship, pro-marriage, pro-life, pro-conservation, pro-individual and pro-Colorado. We need strong and sensible economic leadership. Think about it. No family sits down at the kitchen table and says, 'Let’s run up the credit cards. It will make us more prosperous.' Families know how faulty that reasoning is. It’s time the government realized it too."
