When politicians and interest groups try to tell us that balancing the budget is impossible, my only response is, bull*hit. As business owners, families and individuals, we have to balance our budgets every year, why should our government be any different? If we spend more than we earn, we go bankrupt or end up in jail, but politicians simply threaten to shut down the government, then approve more fake money to be thrown at their egregious spending habits.
America runs on our tax dollars, and at the end of the day, we’re always asked to pick up the tab for the unwillingness of our politicians to control spending. They continue to send billions overseas to countries who burn our flag, while men, women, children, and veterans are living on the streets right here in America. Billions and billions spent on special interest groups or dollars that go “unaccounted for” or “missing.” This behavior is unacceptable. Our government must be held to a higher standard of financial solvency than we are.
I will push for a balanced budget and to eliminate every single expense that does not affect your health, wealth, family, education or safety. Someone must get into DC and push hard enough and expose the waste and negligence of this system. Every politician promises to do that, yet we go further and further into debt. That is because every politician thus far has not done the tough work or had the tough conversations to make this happen. I can and will do that.
