Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart

Representing the 25th District of FLORIDA

Fiscal Responsibility

Having served on the House Budget Committee, I strongly believe that Congress must adhere to the principles of fiscal discipline. Too often, hard-earned taxpayer dollars are wasted on fraudulent and duplicated federal programs. Congress must work to make these programs more efficient, or simply terminate them to ensure better results for beneficiaries and greater savings for taxpayers. 

You deserve a government that is responsible with your hard-earned tax dollars. ExpectMore.gov gives you the performance ratings for Federal agaencies. There is no reason we should not expect Federal agencies to do better.
