Issue Position: The Budget and Debt

Issue Position

The national debt of the US is out of control, having risen to over $15 trillion dollars. This fiscal crisis now threatens even our national security. We must act today to ensure our nation's strength and economic vitality today and for the future.

The federal budget should be like a family's budget. You shouldn't spend more than you take in. I support making significant cuts in spending that will reduce the budget deficit and enforce spending caps that will put spending on a path to balanced budget.
