Cresent Hardy on Budget & Economy

 

 


We cannot spend money that we do not have

The Federal Government has got to learn to live within its means. We must immediately balance the overly bloated federal budget, and actively work toward reducing our trade deficit.

As a long-time businessman, I have had to keep a sharp eye on the bottom line of my businesses to ensure that employees and vendors are paid on time. The government should operate by this same basic standard. We cannot spend money that we do not have!

The periodic raising of the nation's debt ceiling is not a long-term solution. Government must provide for the essential responsibilities of national defense, maintenance of federal highways, preservation of Social Security, and welfare programs for our most needy citizens. Aside from these core responsibilities, most functions of government are more efficiently handled at the state and local levels.
