The US National Debt was at $28.4 trillion by Oct. 1, 2021, as fiscal year 2022 began. Our debt exceeded $29 trillion on Dec. 16, 2021. I believe that our debt is a national security issue. Our legislators continue to avoid dealing with it. They continue to add to it. They continue to pay lip service to it. If our country doesn’t deal with this debt soon, our children and our grandchildren will one day have to deal with it. That will not be a good day for America.
As a long time Federal employee, I saw lots of wasteful spending and I know where the waste and fraud is worst. If elected, I will work to identify government waste and reduce it as much as possible.
