Letter to Representatives About US National Debt:
I am increasingly concerned over the continued rejection of balanced budgets and refusal of both parties to address our national debt in any meaningful and substantial way. I have tracked our national debt on a continual basis since 2002. I remember seeing the national debt clock in New York in 2006 when our debt stood at $6.5 trillion. It has since tripled.
I am attempting to comprehend the laws surrounding our spending and budgeting. Are there any effective means that will help prevent this from continuing into the future?
I have spent the last 15 years teaching personal financial responsibility, budgeting, saving, debt management, and investing. I have traveled all over America, providing this education. At the core of this teaching is a fundamental equation: INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO It is the basic truth of economics for every family.
A family could never thrive by continually allowing their regular spending to outpace their income. How will it be possible for America?
Can you help me understand the tangible actions you have undertaken to address this issue? Also: What can I do to help?
