Tough Choices

Our government on the national level has been running deficit budgets for many years.  We are currently 22 trillion dollars in debt.  I do not understand why our government is not taking this growing problem seriously.  It needs to be fixed.

Obviously, a deficit occurs when we spend more money than we receive in a certain period of time.  To erase a deficit, either income must increase, spending must decrease, or some combination of the two.

People get really upset if something that affects them is cut.  People also do not like to have their taxes raised.  Politicians are elected by these same people.

We, the people, need to realize that our government is going to have to start making some tough choices.

We cannot continue to tax less and spend more.

We may be called upon to sacrifice something that is dear to us.

Something needs to be done.

During this election cycle, let us ask what our politicians are going to do to turn our financial situation around.

Let’s not ignore this growing problem.
