Concern for our nation’s financial future has been on the backburner for too long. In spite of our country’s much-too-high national debt of over $26 trillion, Congress continues to overspend. This poses a threat to our economy: too much debt can slow economic growth and foster uncertainty. We spend hundreds of billions each year on interest to service the national debt, and this percentage will grow as our debt continues to balloon. Structural spending reforms are needed.
