Build an Economy That Lasts

As a nation, we now have a $23 trillion debt. This is a 400% increase since the 1990s.

At some point in the future, we will face an economic meltdown if we continue with the tax cuts that make voters happy and pass on the spending cuts, which have resulted in the massive debt that we have today, and that our children will have to pay off tomorrow.

Big tax cuts are a popular and easy way to grow the economy in the short term. The problem is that at the end of the day, your children will be paying for that deficit. Leadership is taking a position and explaining to people why it is in their best interest to follow. It is my belief that as a country, we have become too fixated on tax cuts and interest rate cuts as a cure for whatever economic woes we have. To grow the economy over the long term, we need to take on the difficult issues our nation faces like immigration, climate change, rebuilding our transportation system, and fixing our health care system. Building an economy to last is all about intelligent policy and hard work. Not tax cuts.
