This week, I voted against President Obama’s request to raise the federal debt limit by $2.4 trillion while failing to include any spending cuts or long term plans for deficit reduction.
I voted no because there is only one way to regain fiscal sanity in Washington, and that is to stop spending money we don’t have. Our nation is already facing a record setting $14 trillion debt and this legislation would have added another $2.4 trillion to it while doing absolutely nothing to end the taxpayer funded spending spree that has plagued the Federal Government for far too long.
There is an old saying that when you are in a hole, you need to stop digging – well the Obama Administration would rather keep digging than to actually listen to the American people and cut spending.
