Chris McDaniel on Budget & Economy
Mike Espy (D): Yes. Supports federal spending on infrastructure, broadband & childcare, to grow the economy.
Cindy Hyde-Smith (R): Mixed. Sees value in federal spending on local projects. But "controlling spending" is a priority.
Chris McDaniel (R): No. Federal spending "crowds out private investment & discourages economic growth."
McDaniel: Strongly Agree.
Question topic: Briefly list political or legislative issues of most concern to you.
McDaniel: Ending deficit spending. It is immoral to saddle our children and grandchildren with this much debt.
Chris McDaniel has sought to seize on the new antispending fervor, casting Cochran--who has delivered billions of dollars in federal spending projects to his impoverished state--as an avatar of a bygone political culture. "The national debt is the greatest moral crisis of this generation," McDaniel said. "So, let's go forth from this place making it perfectly clear that the era of big spending is over. The age of appropriations must end."
After Cochran announced his re-election bid Friday, the Club for Growth, who have endorsed McDaniel, put out a statement that criticized the senator for his support of earmarked spending projects, for bailing out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and for raising the federal debt limit.
The Christian Coalition Voter Guide inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution' Christian Coalition's self-description: "Christian Voter Guide is a clearing-house for traditional, pro-family voter guides. We do not create voter guides, nor do we interview or endorse candidates."
