Spending Cuts and Debt

Looming Government Funding Deadline

| Posted in Blog

This year, the amount of money we’ll pay on INTEREST ALONE to service our national debt will exceed what we’re spending to fund the entire U.S. military. That’s according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). Let that sink in for a moment.  What we’ll spend this year to operate the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, Coast Guard, and Space Force… take all those…

Assistance for Israel

A handful of reporters have asked why I voted against the aid package for Israel last week. Obviously, I’m not opposed to the concept of assistance for Israel, but friends we’re $34 trillion dollars in the hole with deficits spiraling out of control.

This one extends current discretionary funding into early March with no meaningful changes to the amount our government is spending, or what that money’s being spent on. You all know…

Recent Spending "Agreement"

If you heard the news this morning, you know a spending “agreement” was announced over the weekend in Congress. This deal was reached between new House Speaker, Mike Johnson, and the Democrat leader of the Senate, Chuck Schumer. The details we know so far are more than disappointing. They’re infuriating. *** If you read no further, just know I’ll be voting against this. It’s a near total…

There are two major deadlines on the immediate horizon, the first of which is just 17 days from now, on January 19th.
