The economy has improved significantly from the depths of the Great Recession, but Senator Feinstein agrees that too many workers are struggling to find good-paying jobs and too many families are having trouble making ends meet. She supports investments to help create more jobs and comprehensive tax reform to incentivize growth and reduce the deficit.
Senator Feinstein believes Congress must do more to help create jobs that pay livable wages. She supports making critical investments to help create jobs and prepare workers for the 21st century economy, including offering incentives to businesses to hire new workers, providing funding for job-training programs, investing in infrastructure and making higher education more affordable.
Economic recovery, slower-than-projected growth in health care costs and congressional efforts to reduce spending and increase revenue have reduced the deficit, but Senator Feinstein believes more must be done to balance the federal budget. She supports closing tax loopholes and working to further slow the growth of health care costs.
Senator Feinstein believes that enacting comprehensive tax reform would help create jobs, encourage entrepreneurship and reduce the deficit.
