As the United States faces such a HUGE obstacle of increasing its debt limit yet one more time, I wrote the following letter to my elected representatives. I encourage you to write YOUR REPRESENTATIVE and demand a BALANCED BUDGET!
I am writing to encourage you to continue to demand that spending cuts are tied to the national debt increase bill. When my own personal budget is faced with shortages, we do not continue to increase our debt – we choose to cut spending instead. Some of these cuts are not fun, but it is what MUST happen in order for my family to prosper.
The same is true for the United States. Please ensure that the fundamental rule of INCOME minus OUTGO must equal EXACTLY ZERO is applied to our budget. While it is absolutely imperative that the national debt is increased at this moment, it is essential that the necessary steps are put into action to ensure that this is THE LAST TIME that we increase our nation’s debt. I don’t want to hand a financially broken and bankrupt nation to my children. I appreciate your leadership and focus on this extremely important issue.
With the highest regard,
I know that I am simple man, but INCOME – OUTGO = EXACTLY ZERO works with $1,000 or with $14,000,000,000,000!
