Currently, we are looking at yearly trillion dollar plus deficits as far as the eye can see. Absolute insanity! In 10 years we could be paying $ 800 billion a year, or more, in interest on the debt alone!
Something must seriously be done to reduce spending, and soon. This year, the only thing we here in Monroe County can do is elect a Congressperson that will take on this difficult, but necessary, task.
There is absolutely no evidence that John Dingell is that man.
