John is working to make Congress more open and accountable. He’s led the drive for an aggressive set of reforms that require major bills to be posted online at least three days before a vote, make it easier to cut spending, require legislation to cite its authority in the Constitution, and more.

John also led his colleagues in adopting the first ban on “earmarks” – the secretive, pork-barrel spending he has opposed since his first days in Congress. Today, John is focused on removing government barriers to private-sector job creation and economic growth, cutting government spending, reforming Congress, and rebuilding the bonds of trust between the American people and their representatives in Washington.
