John Ratcliffe on Budget & Economy
Ratcliffe: Strongly Agree.
Question topic: Briefly explain political or legislative issues of most concern to you.
Ratcliffe: Stopping the out-of-control spending must become a priority of Congress. Despite $17 trillion of national debt, our elected officials continue to offer million dollar solutions to trillion dollar problems as we lurch from one manufactured crisis to the next. Ultimately, it's our children who will pay the price. In Congress, I will support a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution and defined spending caps to restore fiscal sanity.
Reckless government spending endangers our country's financial stability while threatening the prosperity of future generations. With record deficits and $17 trillion of national debt, Congress still offers million dollar solutions to trillion dollar problems. As Congressman, John will tackle our out-of-control spending head on by pushing for a balanced budget amendment.
