According to the CBO, "our growing debt also would increase the probability of a sudden fiscal crisis..." Common sense tells us that when you see a problem coming, you find out the cause and correct it. In this case, the cause is government spending:

  • The President's Health Care Bill will increase government spending on health care by 93% by 2037.
  • By 2025, spending on our three largest entitlement programs -- Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security -- will match federal revenue, meaning that all additional government spending, including defense, will be borrowed.
  • The CBO estimates that interest payments on our national debt will equal 9.5% of our GDP.
