MY VIEW: David Perdue & Maya MacGuineas

Senator David Perdue, the junior senator from Georgia, and Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, wrote a commentary that appeared in the Washington Times.  It is reposted here.

Our country is swimming in a sea of red ink, with annual deficits projected to rise rapidly from $534 billion this year to more than $1.3 trillion by 2026 while our national debt is slated to increase by nearly $10 trillion over the next decade. The longer we wait to fix this problem, the more likely we are to have a debt crisis. In order to get our debt under control and put America back on a path toward fiscal responsibility, one of the first things we must do is change the budget process.

Fiscal policy has not been center stage in this presidential campaign. The limited attention it has received, along with budget-busting promises coming from the candidates, has made this one of the more fiscally irresponsible campaigns in recent memory.

The national debt stands at near-record levels. At 75% of GDP, it’s at the highest point since just after World War II. But unlike then, it is slated to grow faster than the economy—indefinitely.
