Reducing National Debt
Cutting waste while growing our economy.
America has over 14 trillion dollars in debt – a number so high we can’t simply cut our way out of it. We have to carve a smart balance between the costs we can and should cut. We need to invest in other areas such as infrastructure, education, and energy independence. Our future growth – critical to the elimination of this debt - depends on creating a smarter balance between these cuts and investments.
I strongly believe that the fastest way to get back on track is to extricate ourselves from Afghanistan and Iraq, and make short term, high impact investments here at home. We must build our own schools, kick start our own industries, and ensure that the next ten years have us transitioning to a growth-based economy.
