Spending Cuts & Debt

Hard-working American families and businesses know what it’s like to live on a budget. They make difficult decisions to live within their means every day, and Washington should have to do the same.

I have serious concerns that hat the America I will pass on to my children and grandchildren will be fundamentally weaker than the one I and other Americans inherited. Those same concerns have been shared with me by hundreds of constituents, of all political stripes, since I began my service in Congress.

The federal government has run up an unsustainable debt of nearly $20 trillion and is on a trajectory to bankrupt programs like Social Security and Medicare. Most of the choices won’t be easy and will take engaged Americans and leadership from our elected officials to turn the corner. The days are over of kicking the can down the road to future generations.
