We all know that things are more than a little out of hand. I do not think anyone has an idea of how much money this president has thrown down the hole that is our national debt. We simply do not know how much his entitlement programs will cost
Presidents Jefferson and Regan lamented the fact that the united states is not required to have a balanced budget. Regan also wanted a line item veto to remove pork that has been added to a necessary bill. These are things we need If we ever want to control the spending of this monster in Washington.
I think that while we work to change the leadership in Washington we can also work to give future presidents the tools they need to get this debt under control.
It is my hope in proposing this that we will soon have enough members in congress to get it passed. I also believe that we can get 38 states to stand with us. We can probably get 31 now and as the current president's policies and programs and gross negligence become obvious, It will not difficult to see where this present monstrosity that is the national debt is headed.
I think we should start with line item veto. We can probably get that one now if we can get it through congress especially sense a simple majority is all that would be required to overturn it. The killer is that they have to stand up in front of their fellow members of congress and defend their pork.
