As an ardent defender of Americans’ civil liberties, Justin has been a leading critic of the unconstitutional mass surveillance of Americans’ communications. He also believes government overspending is one of the biggest threats to our economic health and national security, and he has introduced an innovative balanced budget amendment—the Business Cycle Balanced Budget Amendment—to control government spending and reduce the national debt.

When asked by a New York Times reporter to describe his voting methodology, Justin explained: “I follow a set of principles, I follow the Constitution. And that’s what I base my votes on. Limited government, economic freedom, and individual liberty.”

Justin is a member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (OGR) and serves on the OGR subcommittees on National Security and Information Technology.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Michigan and a juris doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. Justin worked for his family’s business, as a business lawyer, and as a Michigan state representative before his election to Congress.
