Budget & Spending

Irresponsible spending and borrowing has been a fact of Congress for the last generation. Now, America faces a debt crisis that threatens our security and prosperity, driven by mandatory spending that is on autopilot towards steeper deficits. Because of this growing debt, we are spending hundreds of billions on interest payments every year – dollars that could and should be going toward actual functions of government rather than our creditors.

We must make spending reforms now to ensure a stronger, better America for tomorrow’s generations. Modernizing our mandatory spending programs will adapt them to better serve Americans in the 21st Century and minimize the debt burden we hand to our children. When it comes to the spending that Congress does vote on every year, we must ensure that balancing our budget is as important a priority as the programs that ask for more funding year after year.
