John Moolenaar on Budget & Economy

 

 


More spending & more regulations delay the recovery

Five years ago, our country faced a financial crisis. It seems like we are making progress, but if you are one of those people still struggling to find a job five years after the financial crisis began, you surely don't think the problem has been solved. In fact, we can do much better! Much of what the Obama Administration tried--more spending, more regulations--didn't work. In fact, they have delayed the recovery.

We still face the threat of a debt crisis. Our national debt is growing faster than our economy. Plain and simple, our obligations are growing faster than our ability to pay them. Our national debt burden remains unsustainable over the long term. The Obama Administration's spending binge has put our nation deeply in debt, eroded economic confidence, and caused massive uncertainty for private sector job creators.

We must find a way to get our spending under control. At a time when American families continue to tighten their belts financially, Congress must do the same & lead by example.
