Join us in fighting against rampant government spending
Our military fights threats all over the world – yet prominent military leaders agree that the greatest threat to our national security is our debt, which will soon reach a staggering $20 trillion. Within years, the interest on that debt will exceed even that of the defense budget. With our national debt that high, our economy is crippling under its own weight and the ability to fund a strong military is diminished.
It is paramount to our security that we tackle reducing the national debt. There are smart and responsible reforms that can be made to government spending to achieve this – especially within the Department of Defense, which has the largest budget in the federal government.
The Pentagon should revise its acquisition process and review its budgeting process to ensure funds are spent efficiently and effectively. Entitlement and mandatory spending programs must be reformed to reduce their impact on the debt and preserve them for future generations. Budget gimmicks must be done away with, and certainty and transparency brought to the budgeting process. And, importantly, the Pentagon – the government’s biggest agency – must be audited as soon as possible.
Our safety and security as a nation is on the line. Join us in fighting against rampant government spending and sign you name in support of targeting the debt!
