Upcoming Tele-Town Hall
Washington, D.C., May 16, 2023
Mark your calendars for 𝐓𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝟏𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐭 𝟓:𝟑𝟎 𝐏𝐌. I’ll be hosting an important tele-town hall concerning our debt ceiling and national debt. Please see the link below to sign up.
For too long, the federal government has spent significantly more money than it receives in tax revenue. Our national debt has now reached $31.4 trillion, the current limit authorized by Congress. While the Treasury has implemented “extraordinary measures” so the country can continue to meet its financial obligations, we are quickly approaching the point at which these measures will be exhausted.
While it may be necessary to raise the debt ceiling again, as your congressman, I am firmly opposed to doing so without responsible spending reductions. As many notable economists have warned, we simply cannot continue to incur these massive deficits year after year.
Additionally, my belief is we cannot solve our debt and deficits with higher taxes, and I am firmly opposed to tax increases. My view is we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. As such, we need to address our out-of-control spending.
My position is that every financial package that comes before Congress must include incremental, responsible spending reductions to put our nation on a trajectory to balance the budget within a reasonable period of time.
Conservatives in the House have already passed a package that accomplishes this. Unfortunately, the President has repeatedly insisted that we raise the nation’s borrowing limit without any efforts to rein in out-of-control spending. That is completely unacceptable to me as your representative in Washington.
This important topic will be the primary focus of my telephone town hall on 𝐓𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞 𝟏𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐭 𝟓:𝟑𝟎 𝐏𝐌. During this call, I’ll be providing an update on the latest developments in this effort, and will also take as many caller questions as time permits.
