One of the main reasons I first ran for the U.S. Senate was to restore fiscal responsibility to the federal budget. Since I was first elected to the Senate in 1992, I have worked to bring Wisconsin's historic tradition of fiscal responsibility to Congress, an environment where wasteful spending too often dominates the budget process.

I was proud to work to reduce and briefly eliminate the federal deficit during the 1990s. But today the federal budget is once again in the red.  Unless we return to fiscally responsible budgeting, Congress will saddle our nation's younger generations with an enormous financial burden for years to come. This is why I continue to offer measures to cut wasteful federal spending, and enforce budget discipline.

Enforcing Budget Discipline
Ending Automatic Pay Raise for Members of Congress
Reducing the Number of Political Appointees
Reducing Irrigation Subsidies to Large Agribusinesses
Military Base Closings
