National Debt

Social Security, Medicade, and Medicare account for over 50% of annual government expenditures.  Interest on our national debt runs around another 10%.  60 cents of every tax dollar collected are used to cover these expenditures, an unsustainable issue that is only going to get worse.  We can argue over defense or education spending all we want.  The truth of the matter is that all other government discretionary spending is just a drop in the bucket compared to entitlements and interest.

We need leadership in Washington that will tackle this crisis with commonsense solutions, regardless of party or consequences.  It’s time to have an adult conversation with the American people and tackle this problem.
