The Debt Bomb: A Decade of DC Spending is Driving America Closer to an Economic Apocalypse

Alexis Garcia reports on America’s exploding debt. Experts blame entitlements like Social Security and government spending. But what is the solution? Can we raise taxes without crushing the economy and the middle class? Does Obama really want to lower the debt, or does he support continued deficit spending? See interviews with Douglas Holtz-Eakin, Brian Riedl, Jason Peuquet and former Congressman Ernest Istook (R-OK).

The hits on my website have taken off the last two months since I have taken up this subject of potential federal spending cuts and the suggestions that I have passed on to Senator Mark Pryor’s office. I received this email below from Senator Pryor’s office concerning my earlier emails to his office concerning possible federal spending cuts:

Dear Mr. Hatcher,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the fiscal policies of the federal government. I appreciate hearing from you.

Like many Arkansans, I am deeply concerned about current spending levels and our ever-growing national debt. I have consistently said that everything must be on the table when it comes to reducing our debt and deficit, and I mean it. I have introduced legislation to eliminate ineffective and unnecessary programs, and I am prepared to use my position in Congress to further reduce wasteful spending.

As a nation, we have been living beyond our means for a long time. I believe we can create a long-term budget plan that significantly reduces our national debt while maintaining adequate funding for our nation’s priorities. This challenge must include reducing spending, addressing entitlement programs, and reforming the tax code. Balancing the budget will require both parties to work together to achieve this goal.

Hearing from Arkansans such as yourself helps me to make better decisions, and I will be sure to keep your specific comments in mind as I continue working to come up with better fiscal solutions for the American people.

Again, thank you for contacting me. I value your input. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my office regarding this or any other matter of concern to you.
Sincerely,

Mark Pryor
United States Senate
