Right now our government debt exceeds over $17 trillion. At over 70% of our entire economy it is probably the greatest threat to our national security. Plainly stated—our spending is unsustainable and it must be addressed. We must rein in our spending in a responsible way. Some programs need large cuts, others we must be smarter about, and cut only where it’s needed.
I have not and will not vote for a budget that does not get our spending under control in a responsible way.
