(Senator Dean Heller, R-NV) – In a little more than a month from today, the federal government is going reach the federal debt limit and run out of money that it can borrow to fuel the trillion dollar deficits President Obama and his allies in Congress have handed our country.
Democrats have done nothing to stop the federal spending spree, and they’re so out of touch that their deficit reduction plan is to spend more money.
We can’t afford to continue down this path!
I believe the national debt is an impediment to economic growth, and we must do something about it.
Before we can even consider raising the debt limit, and saddling our children and grandchildren with even more debt, we must put our country on the path to a balanced budget by:
- Making substantial spending cuts to reduce the deficit
- Establishing enforceable spending caps that will put federal spending on a path to a balanced budget
- Passing a Balanced Budget Amendment to force Washington to spend within its means
We can’t afford to lose this fight.
